Hi everyone Jennifer from Tarle speech with your two for Tuesday.
These words are pronounced exactly the same way they just have a different meaning and a different spelling. Our words are sword which is a bladed weapon and sword to rapidly go above the current level.
This question comes from a recent lesson that I just did on the word sword and you can see that it’s a quick short I’ll put the link below.
So to say these words correctly we have four sounds we’re going to start with that s sound: tip of the tongue is behind the top front teeth or slightly pointed down air is going to move out of the mouth.
Next we’re going to pucker or and then pull those lips back for that er, or, the tip of the tongue is either pointed down or flipped back and the back of the tongue is pulled high up for this or vowel.
Next end with the d by touching the tip of the tongue to the back of the top front teeth. Air puffs out and you are going to have your voice box on and moving for that d.
Let’s put it all together
Now for a sentence
The superhero soared over the city carrying his magic sword.
