th / θ – throw

  • There are two ‘t-h’ sounds. This one is unvoiced. This sound is made by passing air through the mouth.
  • Start by sticking the tip of your tongue out between your teeth.
  • Your teeth should be lightly touching your tongue. If you bite too hard, the air cannot flow out. The rest of your mouth should be relaxed.
  • Note: This sound cannot be made unless your tongue is sticking out. If your tongue does not stick out, this sound becomes the /s/ sound.
