/moʊd/ or M-long o-D
Hi everyone Jennifer from Tarle speech with your two for Tuesday homophone lesson. We have two words that are pronounced exactly the same way, different meanings, and different spellings. Again same pronunciation. We have:
mode a manner of doing something a set of musical notes or value that occurs most frequently in a data set and
mowed to cut down with a machine
We have three little sounds today. Let’s start with that m lips together, air moves out of the nose, then we’re going to move to that long o. To do that, open in a wide oval, tip of the tongue is low, back of the tongue is pulled high up, and then move to a pucker.
As you move to a pucker the tongue is going to go along for the ride and it’ll end in the middle of the mouth. oh oh Then we’re going to end with the D D. Touch the tip of the tongue to the skin where the teeth meet the skin on the roof of your mouth, I should say. And then you can pull it down as the air Puffs out for that D. Voice box is on and moving.
Let’s put it all together m-o-d
mode mowed mode
mowed mode mowed
And now for a sentence:
Which mode did they use when they mowed the lawn?
Give it a try people will notice the difference. If you like this please share this with your friends and if you need help check us out at Tarle speech.
Thanks everyone have an amazing week!
