Suzanne’s Quick Tips Episode #2: Articulate to make your English great
Today we’re going to cover a Quick Tip and we’re going to be talking about adding articulation in your speech. Something really simple, but something that many people forget to do.
Quick tip takeaways
- Adding articulation relates to increasing the movement of your moveable articulators like the lower jaw, the tongue, and the soft palette.
- It’s important to know the manner of articulation of the sounds you want to increase effort on. In other words, are you adding more explosion of air, or are you adding more vibration?
- Diphthongs are two vowels or sounds that come together to create one longer sound. These are like moving vowels.
