How to Pronounce the TH sound

How-to-Pronounce-TH-sound
The TH sound is quite a difficult sound to make for many people.

 

The question is:
How do we pronounce the TH?

The answer:
In 2 ways- /ð/ or /θ/

 

Ok ok, that didn’t help very much!   :-)


TH – voiced dental fricative:

voicedTHThis TH sounds like “this” and is a soft sound. To pronounce this TH, place the tip of your tongue between your top and bottom teeth and vibrate your vocal cords – it’s quite fun!

Words that have the /ð/ sound are:
than
then
this
- weather
- smooth
- other

TH – voiceless dental fricative:

unvoicedTH

Words with this TH are, for example, “thing” and “thought”. It is a much stronger sound. To pronounce this TH, do the same: place the tip of your tongue between your teeth but just blow air through your mouth without vibrating your vocal cords.

Words that have the /θ/ sound are:
- thank
think
therapy
- moth
- path
- youth
