Transcript of Pronunciation: nasal sounds

Nasal sounds By Yasmina El Bakouri & Araceli Gómez Let's practise! Frequent problems /m/ Bilabial /n/ alveolar velar Exercise D Exercise B Exercise C Exercise A /m/ (bilabial) (velar) /n/ (alveolar) Highlights of theory... This sound is made by closing your mouth. Now use your voice to make a sound. The sound is made by putting the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth, right behind your teeth. To make this sound, put your tongue up against the roof of the back of your mouth. Now, make a sound using your voice. Contrast between /m/ and /n/ at the end of a word Listen and match the words below with the correct sound Find words which show the contrast between two sounds Make sentences with contrast sound words It doesn't present major problems, except when the sound is in a final position. This sound it’s similar to the Catalan or Spanish /n/, that’s why it doesn’t cause too many problems to our students No problematic (middle sound) Why are they called
"NASAL SOUNDS"? * If you hold your nose you won't be able to do the sound! * Now use your voice to make a sound (don't move your tongue!).

* Check by holding your nose that you don't say /l/ instead of /n/. * This is the sound of "bring", the consonant is actually one sound even though it is written with two letters. /m/ /n/ same
came sane
cane Repeat the words below and notice the contrast Because when we make these sounds, the air goes out of our noses instead of our mouths! /m/ /n/ Three nasal consonants in English /m/ /n/ gong
some mountain
lame Differences between the three sounds /n/ wing
__________________________ Write 4 words with the sound and 4 more with the sound, both in a final position. win
_____________ sound sound Try to find words which show the contrast between the two sounds. /n/ bomb-Bonn
- A bomb exploded in Bonn. game - gain /m/ - /n/ Robin-robbing
- Robin was caught robbing a bank. thin-thing son - song /n/ - Make sentences with these words. Then, in pairs, read to each other the sentences written. mountain nail donkey - _____________________ - _____________________ - _____________________ same-sane - _____________________ Spanish speakers tend to say /n/ instead of /m/. "fron" instead of from "ice-crean" instead of ice-cream No problems at all! Maybe the problem arises when this sound is at the end of a word. Examples: bone, sin, telephone, cone... Problem (final sound) → tango, naranja

→ banca, tanca

→ finger, donkey → /

→ sang, fang

→ long, wrong They substitute the sound for the sound so they pronounce "sin" instead of sing. /n/ This sound exists both in Catalan and Spanish. Thank you for your attention!
