Pronunciation of Vowel Sounds Part 02 – Accent Lesson

In this lesson You will now learn how to correctly pronounce each type of vowel.

We categorize vowels as front, middle, or back depending on which part of the tongue is
used to produce the sound. For example, /i/ is a front vowel because the front part of the
tongue goes up in the front of the mouth, and /u/ is a back vowel because the back of the
tongue goes up in the back of the mouth. We also categorize vowels as high or low. In high
vowels, the tongue is pushed up high near the roof of the mouth as in /i/, and in low vowels,
the tongue is flat down at the bottom of the mouth, as in /ae/.

Diphthongs consist of two different vowel sounds that are closely joined together and treated as one vowel. They are represented by two phonetic symbols. To create this sound, move your tongue smoothly from one vowel position to another. The following vowels are diphthongs: /eɪ/ as in take, /oʊ/ as in boat, /aɪ/ as in time, /aʊ/ as in house, and /ɔɪ/ as in boy.

    I almost never drop remarks, however after reading through a
    ton of comments on Pronunciation of Vowel Sounds
    Part 02 – Accent Lesson | Learnex. I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be only me or do a few of these responses look like they are left by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing at other places, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of your social community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
