  • The S and Z consonant sounds. These two sounds are paired together because they take the

  • same mouth position. Ss is unvoiced, meaning only air passes through the mouth, and zz

  • is voiced, meaning you make a sound with the vocal cords. To make the sound, the lips part

  • and the corners pull back while the teeth themselves lightly touch, ss, zz. The tip of the tongue

  • is down, lightly touching behind the bottom front teeth, ss, ss, while further back, the

  • top of the tongue raises and actually touches the roof of the mouth, ss, zz, about here.

  • The tongue touches on either side of the roof of the mouth, but down the middle there's

  • a passage where it's not touching. This is where the air comes, ss, zz. Here is the S

  • and Z consonant sound shape on the right compared with the mouth at rest. And with parts of

  • the mouth drawn in. The soft palate is raised for these sounds. But more importantly, note

  • the tongue position. It stretches forward and up. The important point of contact is

  • where the tongue touches the bottom teeth. The sides of the tongue are raised, pressing

  • against the sides of the roof of the mouth. The teeth are closed but the lips are parted.

  • Sample words: sip/zip, see/zebra, bus/buzz. Sample sentence: Because it's sunny and he's

  • fair-skinned, he has to wear sunscreen. Now you will see this sentence up close and in

  • slow motion, both straight on and from an angle, so you can really study how the mouth

  • moves when making this sound. Lips press lightly together for the B sound. Because, with the

  • 'uh' as in 'butter' sound. Teeth come together to make the Z, and you can see the tongue

  • there right behind them. It's, the S sound, teeth together with the tongue right

  • behind. Sunny, 'uh' as in 'butter', tongue goes up to make the N. And, jaw drops for

  • the 'aa' as in 'bat', tongue up for the N and D. He's fair-skinned, bottom lip up for

  • the F, fair-skinned, teeth together for the S with the tongue just behind. Jaw drops a

  • bit for the 'ih' as in 'sit'. Tongue up to the roof of the mouth for the ND sound. He

  • has. Now here, has would normally be pronounced with a Z, but because it's followed by an

  • unvoiced consonant, the T, it is pronounced as an S. He has to wear. Lips form the W shape.

  • Sunscreen. Teeth together for the S, sunscreen. And again for the S in -screen. Lips form

  • the R position, 'ee' as in 'she', and tongue tip up to make the N. Lips press together

  • for the B in because, teeth come together to make the Z sound with the tongue just behind.

  • It's. TS sound. Sunny, the S sound, teeth closed. 'Uh' as in 'butter', tongue up for

  • the N. And, jaw drops for the 'aa' as in 'bat', tongue up for the ND. He's, teeth together

  • to make the Z sound. This Z sound also could come across as an S because it's followed

  • by an unvoiced consonant. Bottom lip up for the F, fair-skinned. Teeth together for the

  • S, 'ih' as in 'sit' sound, tongue up for the N. He, he has to, jaw drops for the 'aa' as

  • in 'bat', normally pronounced as a Z, here it is pronounced as an S because it is connected

  • to the T, hast, has to wear. Teeth together for the S, sun-, and again for the S, -screen.

  • Lips form the R consonant shape. The 'ee' as in 'she' and the tongue tip up for the

  • N. That's it, and thanks so much for using Rachel's English.
