  • Let's take a look at the letter T. It can be silent, like in the word 'fasten', it can

  • be pronounced CH, ch, as in the word 'future'. It can be pronounced tt like in the word 'tap'.

  • When paired with the H, it can be th, the unvoiced TH, as in the word 'thanks'. Or it

  • can be th, the voiced TH, as in the word 'this'. The letter T can actually represent various

  • sounds. This is why the International Phonetic Alphabet makes it easier to study the pronunciation

  • of foreign languages. This video focuses on consonants.

  • What is the International Phonetic Alphabet? It's a system of phonetic notation, and I

  • use it a lot on my website and when I teach students. I've also used it a lot when I've

  • studied foreign languages. The IPA is especially handy when studying English because English

  • is not a phonetic language. This means when you see a letter or a group of letters, it

  • will not necessarily be pronounced the same in each word in which it occurs, just as in

  • the example at the beginning of this video.

  • The IPA has a written symbol for each phonetic sound. So, this makes it easier to read about

  • and write about pronunciation. As a student of pronunciation, it's important that you

  • become familiar with the symbols that represent the sounds of American English.

  • Dd, say that with me, dd. This sound is in dime, redo, smiled.

  • Tt, say that with me, tt. This sound is in washed, untie, tip.

  • Vv. This sound is in value, of, love.
