TT4BS - the r & l sounds

In this TongueTwisting4BetterSpeech, we are going to practice two sounds: the r and the l sounds. To practice these sounds separately first go to our May 7, 2011 blog for the r sound and our April 23, 2011 blog for the l sound.

When you're ready to pronounce these two sounds together, try saying the following words first:
Roll, crawl, rail, Braille, trial
Lauren, leery, lard, blurry, flurries
Lawrence, roller, holler, relate, trail

To practice the tongue twister, start slow then gradually say the sentence faster until you can repeat it three times at normal talking speed.
Larry and Lauren reluctantly released their turtle called darling which ate lard while slowly crawling and drooling across the floor.

Good luck!
