Hello it’s Jennifer from Tarle speech with your two for Tuesday homophone lesson!
Homophones are words that are spelled differently but they have the same pronunciation. So our words today are sole which is the bottom of the foot or shoe, only one, or a type of fish, and soul a spiritual part of a being or something that arouses emotion.
Here are the words. So to say these words correctly three little sounds. We’re going to start with that s. To say this, the tip of the tongue is pointed down, or is just behind the top front teeth. Air is going to move out of your mouth continuously. Next we’re going to move to that long o. And to do that, you’re going to open your mouth in a wide oval, while the tip of your tongue is super low in your mouth, the back of the tongue is pulled way high up. Then you’re going to move to a pucker. As you move to that pucker your tongue just flattens out in the middle of your mouth.
Last end by touching the tip of your tongue to that spot where your teeth meet the roof of your mouth, where they meet that skin part. And then you’re going to hold it there for that sound. Hold it there an extra second. Don’t let go, and make sure that your lips are pulled back into a kind of a smile shape, you don’t want to have them rounded.
Let’s put it all together:
soul sole soul
And now for a sentence: She bared her soul and admitted she doesn’t like the red sole on the shoe.
