  • In this American English pronunciation

  • video, we're going to learn how to

  • pronounce the EE as in SHE vowel.

  • This vowel is common to many

  • languages.

  • To make it, the jaw drops just a little bit.

  • The tongue tip stays behind the bottom

  • front teeth. The middle/front part of

  • the tongue arches up towards the roof

  • of the mouth, diminishing the space

  • between the tongue and the roof of the

  • mouth.

  • The corners of the lips pull a little wide,

  • ee. They're not quite relaxed.

  • Let's see this sound up close and in

  • slow motion.

  • A little jaw drop, tongue tip down and

  • forward while the top front of the

  • tongue arches towards the roof of the

  • mouth. The corners of the lips pull out.

  • In the word 'please', the EE vowel is

  • stressed. Same position.

  • When stressed, the vowel has the up-

  • down shape of a stressed syllable: EE.

  • When unstressed, it's lower and flatter

  • in pitch, quieter, and faster, ee. This is a

  • very common ending unstressed vowel

  • in American English because of all of

  • the words that end in Y, like the word

  • 'busy'. Let's see this word up close and

  • in slow motion.

  • Jaw drops, top front of tongue arches

  • up, and the corners of the lips pull out.

  • Let's compare the stressed EE in

  • 'please', on top, with the unstressed EE

  • in 'busy', on the bottom. You can see

  • the mouth position for the unstressed

  • EE is a little more relaxed. The jaw

  • doesn't drop as much.

  • A more relaxed mouth position for the

  • unstressed version of a vowel or

  • diphthong is very common because

  • they are shorter. So, there is less time

  • to make the full mouth position.

  • Stressed EE: need, EE

  • Unstressed: busy, ee

  • EE, ee. EE, ee.

  • Example words. Repeat with me:

  • Keep, early, police, coffee, meet, each.
