Two for Tuesday✌️Learn English HOMOPHONE Pronunciation


Hello it’s Jennifer from Tarle speech with your two for Tuesday homophone lesson. Homophones are words that are pronounced exactly the same. They just have different spellings and different meanings. We have two words today:
burrow which is a whole dug by a small animal or to dig a tunnel and
Borough a town or an administrative District

So to say these words correctly, we have two syllables. Let’s start with Br. To say this lips together then open them for that b sound. While the air Puffs out. Then move to square tense lips for that ER – tip of the tongue is down, back of the tongue is pulled high up. You can also flip the tip of the tongue back that works fine too just make sure you don’t touch your teeth, and the tip of your tongue does not move. br

Syllable number two is o. You can just say Burr o that’s fine. But recently I’ve been saying that it’s helping my students to think of having two r’s there. So that you connect those syllables clearly. So to say the o sound you’re going to open in a wide oval then move to a pucker. Tongue starts low in the mouth with that tongue tip way low. Back of the tongue pulled high up and then ends in the middle of the mouth – o.h

Put it all together ber-o ber -o
burrow borough burrow
burrow borough burrow

And now for a sentence:
A prairie dog burrow was found under the borough building.
