Consonants sounds

Consonant Sounds /l/ and /r/

These two sounds are not similar but we shall consider them together in this lesson. When you say /l/ the tip of your tongue makes contact with the alveolar ridge as the air passes the sides of your tongue. It is called lateral and it is voiced. E.g: leak, line, lead, lemon, fill, middle, shall, silly, etc.

Silent: talk, walk, yolk, could, folk, palm, half, should, calm, etc.

/r/ To pronounce this sound, the tip of the tongue comes very near but does not actually touch the alveolar ridge eg. Rate, rock, rag, rank, robe, race, rake, rug, range, ferry, rib, parade, barrel, etc.
