How to pronounce TAUGHT & THOUGHT – American English Pronunciation Lesson 


Hey everyone Jennifer from Tarle speech with your two for Tuesday!

We have two words they have different spellings and different meanings but they are pronounced exactly the same way.

We have taught to teach and tot a young child. To say these words correctly three little sounds.

Start with the T. Touch the tip of the tongue to the back of the top front teeth and let the air puff out.

Move to the short OH sound. You want a wide open oval mouth. Tip of the tongue is down, back of the tongue is pulled up.

And then move again to that T T T

taught tot
taught tot
taught tot

And now for a sentence.

The mom taught her tot to help clean up.

Give it a try I know people are going to notice the difference. If you found this helpful please share us with your friends and give us a like if you’re looking for more help you can find our products and our classes at Tarle speech dot com.
