Hello Jennifer from Tarle speech with your two for Tuesday homophone lesson.
Homophones are words that are pronounced the same but they have different spellings and different meanings. Our words today are hurts which means to cause pain or injury and hurt it is an SI unit of frequency equaling one second or a rental car chain in the U.S.
To say these words correctly we have four sounds. Let’s start with that h sound. Super easy for the h. Open your mouth and let the air just continue out. Sounds kind of like a sigh. Next, we’re going to move to that ER. I’m writing that two letters equaling one sound. To say an ER, square tense lips, tip of the tongue is down, or it is flipped back, back of the tongue is always pulled up, tongue is not touching any of the teeth in the mouth. ER.
Then touch the tip of the tongue to the back of the top front teeth for that t. And then pull it down for the s. Tip of the tongue is either down or behind the top front teeth. It’s not touching so the air can move out of the mouth.
Let’s put it all together:
hurts hurts hurts hurts hurts hurts hurts hurts hurts
And now for a sentence:
Frequencies above 25,000 Hertz hurts your dog’s ears.
