TT4BS - /e/ and /eI/

In this TongueTwisting4BetterSpeech, we'll help you practice the /e/ and the /eI/ sounds together. To practice each of them separately, go to our July 31, 2001 post for the /e/ sound and to this window off the small guide site for the /eI/ sound.

Let's practice the following words first:
Brain, trail, gait, late, lake
Less, digress, confess, friend, fret
Enable, maintain, unveil, address, paycheck

Say the tongue twister slowly first.
They set sail as the rain fell and made a wet mess of guests who came to watch whales and tell tales.

Good luck!
