ArticulationPoints – Lesson Three
Today wewent through the basics of articulations points. As this is a complex, I will summarize the points and provide links for more information.
The articulation point is the place of emitting the letter when pronouncing it that differentiates that letter from specific letters.
There are two types of articulation points:
1. Specific – This relieson a specific place of the areas of the throat, tongue and the two lips.
2. General – This doesnot rely on a specific place of the areas of the throat, tongue and the twolips.
There are five articulation places:
1. The empty space in themouth and throat
2. The mouth
3. The tongue
4. The two lips
5. The nose

Another good resource, this website has handbook, with audio clips which has different exercises. The audio clips are great to put onto your mobile or MP3 and listen while following handbook.
