or / or – door

  • Voiced. This sound is made with your vocal cords.
  • To make this sound, we need to combine two other sounds: the first is a shortened version of the ‘long o’ /ō/ sound and the second is the /r/ sound.
  • Start by making the ‘long o’ /ō/ sound: your lips should be relaxed and in a perfectly round circle.
  • From here, you do not want to make the /w/ sound that exists in the second part of the ‘long o’ /ō/ sound. Instead, you want to round your lips and curl your tongue into the /r/ sound.
