Enunciation Exercises (reasons for spitting)..heh Jul 31, '08 5:49 AM
for everyone saw this file in the office and thought of sharing it with you, guys...hehe...kinda amusing...hehe
How to Enunciate
Step 1 Speak each consonant clearly. The consonants are imperative in understanding speech, and you must make an effort to make each consonant sound heard. It also helps if you speak slowly, this will help you take the time to make each sound.
Step 2 Open your mouth to properly speak each word. To enunciate each word you will have to quit lazy speech. You can't mumble. Speak the vowels openly with your tongue and use your tongue and your teeth to make each sound understood.
Step 3 Spit when you talk. If you enunciate, it will happen. When you properly enunciate you will have to use your mouth to push out the words, and this may bring some saliva. When you are speaking in front of many people this may seem a bit unorthodox, but it is a necessary evil. With practice you can eliminate the showers. (**rexcel: evil grin***...hehe)
Step 4 Practice at home. Use some enunciation exercises in order to learn how to enunciate well. Stand in front of a mirror, and as you exaggerate your words you will be able to practice your way to making it seem less awkward. A wellseasoned speaker will be able to enunciate without making it look funny.

How to Stop Mumbling and Speak Clearly
Mumbling is when you speak so low or skimp on enunciation to the extent that people DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND what you're saying, and often ask you to repeat yourself. This can be an annoying habit, but chances are that you already know how to speak without mumbling. You have probably had a phone conversation when the connection was poor or spoken to somebody who was hard of hearing, and in these situations you probably spoke loudly and clearly without even thinking about it. Can you do that consciously and make it a habit? Here are some techniques to try.
1. Stand up straight. Even if you're nervous, good posture will help to give the impression of confidence. Good posture also helps to keep your airways open, so your breath can be stronger. 2. Don't be afraid to say the wrong thing. You might; everyone does. Just correct yourself or move on. It is a skill and some people are extremely gifted at it. If you need to practice, realize it is a skill that you aren't particularly strong in but is something you can learn. 3. Open your mouth wider as you talk. Not as much sound will come out if it has to snake past your closed teeth and lips first. 4. Articulate. Make sure you actually stop the air for consonants like 't' and 'b'. Differentiate between your vowels. Your whole mouth is required to articulate.
8. Slow down. Statements should go down. Have at least enough faith in the sentences you are saying to get them across clearly. just below your ribs. Try exaggerating your inflection. If you're nervous or uncertain. Speak with inflection. such as radio and television announcers. Place a hand over your stomach. Even if you speak no more loudly. Talk into a tape recorder or use your computer with a microphone. You will automatically use more breath. listen to yourself and notice how you're doing. 10.5 5. but it won't help your words be understood. 7. Practice. and so on. Do take the opportunity to notice what is unintelligible. the way you would if you were reading to a small child and hamming it up a little bit. Practice pronouncing words by reading things out loud and pronouncing every word correctly and slowly. Notice. 9. Then. what syllables and words get emphasis. also. go back and repeat the sentence. Questions should go up in pitch at the end. Use the muscles in your stomach to support your breath as you speak. y y y Diction Exercises . Be confident. Aim to speak at least a little bit louder. where your sentences trail off. you will speak more clearly this way. Listen to others who are good at speaking. and you will probably slow down and articulate better in the process. and so on. Notice the words you struggle with. Speak up. at what speed they talk. 6. Support from your diaphragm. regard clear speech as a courtesy to your listener. You should feel the muscles there move as you speak. Every now and then. until you are able to say them at a normal speaking pace. listen to your recordings. and repeat them loud and clearly. 11. If you mumble. Talking too fast is a common symptom of nervousness. Edit Tips y Be conscious of your speech. and notice how they pronounce words.

but simply by laziness. As in sport the fitter you are the easier it becomes. 2 The more these muscles are exercised the clearer the speech becomes and listeners find it much easier to understand you. If your technique is good in sport you can concentrate on winning you don t need to worry about how to make the shot. 3 It enables you and the audience to concentrate more on the content of what you are saying rather than how you are saying it they don t need to decipher it. LAZINESS Many problems of articulation are caused by bad habits and laziness. most cases of bad articulation are caused. We may mumble our words or perhaps speak out of the corner of our mouth because we want to sound like our friends it may not be fashionable among our peers to speak clearly. We just can t be bothered to use our mouths. I can t lift the bar very far with my bad arm Fun tongue twisters 1. 1 It enables us to speak for long periods of time without tiring. Red leather yellow leather Good Articulation Good articulation is the art of speaking and involves the study of the muscles we use for speech. Peter Piper picked a piece of pickled pepper 4. Good articulation has three advantages. not by design. As in any sport. We know what we are saying so we expect other people to know what we mean.20 4. She sells sea shells on the sea shore 2. muscles used correctly can work more effectively for much longer than muscles used incorrectly. Look at the following example: .

The lips 3. the ball hits the net because you were too lazy to stretch your arm up would you then expect to win the point because you knew where you wanted the ball to go. The hard palate is the front of the roof of the mouth and cannot move. It is the bony bit near the teeth and like the teeth it is used in conjunction with the tongue. The tongue 2. The tongue is the only muscle in the body connected directly to a bone.21 suppose you are serving in tennis. The hard palate As the sound enters the mouth these organs of speech alter the sound. The teeth cannot move but are used in conjunction with the lips and tongue. 1. The soft palate 5. . ORGANS OF SPEECH There are five organs of speech which we use to create good articulation. It can be lowered or raised for differing sounds. It would be ludicrous but the principle is the same. The teeth 4. it can twist and can move very quickly. We notice the importance of teeth when we listen to young children who are waiting for the tooth fairy to arrive or to more elderly people whose teeth have unfortunately not managed to reach such an old age as they have! The soft palate is the back of the roof of the mouth. There is no reason why people should know in advance what you are going to say. The lips can be moved forwards and backwards and can change the shape of the mouth. therefore you must speak clearly and use your facial muscles to produce good articulation which in turn creates clear speech. from side to side. it can move in and out.
For those of you who might be interested in more technical details. The mouth closes slightly. there are three types of vowel sounds. An example is ee . and u but as many as twenty six different vowel sounds. The different sounds are made by altering the positions of the tongue and lips. An example is the sound ay . The breath for vowel sounds comes up through the vocal cords and straight out through the mouth. We have a as in cat. Once the sound has been started the mouth stays in the same position. An example of this is our which is often mispronounced as are which is only a monophthong. We have five vowels. aw as in crawl and l as in luh. take the vowel a . If the position of the lips and tongue do not alter during the sound it is a monophthong. car. a. Sometimes the tongue may rest behind the bottom teeth although technically it shouldn t. Note that for these vowel sounds the organs of speech never touch each other. VOWEL SOUNDS Speech sounds are either vowel sounds or consonant sounds.22 Try saying these two simple words: AT ALL These two little words represent four sounds and the tongue moves so quickly to produce four sounds that we don t notice. the tongue shouldn t touch the hard palate and the lips don t touch each other. If there are three positions. it is a triphthong. Each sound is different and it is the sound that is important not the name of the letter. Look in the mirror as you say the above words.o. now imagine its sound in the following words. For example.i. The teeth shouldn t touch the lips. cat and way. it is a diphthong. . t as in tuh.e. The same with the e in bet and bee. If the position of the lips and tongue alter from one position to another.
The wrong technique will give you aches and pains just as shouting will give you a sore throat. buh and muh) The teeth and lips touching create a f or v sound. n or l sound. just as using the correct grip will make hitting a tennis ball or golf ball easier and will enable it to go further. EXERCISE AND DRILLS In order to correct lazy speech and achieve good articulation we have to practice and make the muscles work effectively. Dribbling around cones in football. To achieve good articulation each word must be finished right to the last syllable and to the final consonant. t . The two lips touching produce the p . In any sport there are drills which you perform in practice over and over again but that you wouldn t dream of reproducing in a match.23 CONSONANT SOUND A consonant sound comes up through the vocal cords and is then stopped in the mouth by the contact of two of the organs of speech. The fourth letter of the alphabet is called dee but its sound is not dee but more of a duh. running and picking up tennis balls in tennis and stretching in dancing are all . We have to remember that it is the sound of the consonant and not the letter name that is important. The organs of speech need as much training and care as any other muscles in the body. Try the sounds below out loud to see how the organs of speech work. Being able to use our organs of speech correctly enables the sound to carry further. This articulation helps us to project our voice and this means that we do not have to shout which is obviously beneficial to us. b and m sounds (puh. The tongue and hard palate mage a d . The tongue and soft palate produce the k and g sounds.
Below are two different drills for vowel sounds. a clock or a telephone. Mouth open as wide as it will go. Focus on the object look at it and direct the sound towards that object. There is no point in whispering them or speaking quickly so that you can get them finished in a hurry! They have to be performed out loud and slowly if they are to do you any good. Examples of this can be seen in the following words: . a teddy bear. Quite often we are in such a hurry to finish what we are saying that we miss out parts of words. I would have got a birdie at the third but my putt went long. I would never expect you to do any of these drills in public. I sound pronounced eye My shot is a mile wide of the line. CORRECT NUMBER OF SYLLABLES We need to be very careful not to cut words short. Make sure they are repeated out loud. It goes without saying that there is no point in doing any of these drills if you do not give 100%. For the oh sound you need a round mouth The following are consonant exercises. You must make sure that you sound the first and last consonant in each word. The same is true of speech drills. this is because when you do these drills you must open your mouth as wide as possible which if done correctly will result in you making funny faces. Try to speak to an object when you do these drills. Incidentally. my throw is too slow and too low. it could be a chair. it doesn t matter what it is. O sound pronounced oh Oh dear. Rather like you do when shouting at a child or a dog! I need to win the first point at the net.24 examples of routine drills which have to be performed daily but you wouldn t see any of the Manchester United players running around cones during a match at Old Trafford. Pull your jaw down with your hand.
Take in just the right amount of air. Another example of a word which is mispronounced is tomorrow . 2. It should have three syllables but is only given two. When hitting a ground stroke you don t stop your arm the minute the racket hits the ball. Correct breathing for Speaking Correct breathing is essential for good speech. 3. The word athlete is a good example of this. pronounced umberella and toddler pronounced toddeler. It should have six syllables not five. Extraordinary should be pronounced as ex-tra-or-di-na-ry but is often pronounced as ex-tro-di-na-ry . Now say out loud: I am a brilliant coach and I m bound to produce some champions. Your breath needs to be long enough for the sound. in particular the top ribs. but no longer. I m going to ask you to stand up. This is called clavicle breathing. Secretary which is often shortened to secretry .25 1. we must also be careful not to add syllables that are not there. Other examples are umbrella. Lifting up your shoulders did you no good whatsoever! All you did was restrict yourself and tense your muscles. Instead of giving it four syllables it is only given three. What did you do immediately before you spoke? I would imagine that most of you pulled your shoulders up as you took a deep breath. With this type of breathing you are trying to move parts of the body which don t move. People who do not speak correctly often say athlelete making the word three syllables long when it should only be two. . Every is nearly always pronounced Evry . this is often pronounced tamorrow . Every sound we make needs breath. While we must not miss out parts of words. a golfer also knows the value of swinging through the ball. we lose the long vowel sound oo .
When we breathe in our lungs need to fill up with air. It must be done naturally with no preparation you mustn t think now I m going to take a breath . At the centre of the diaphragm is the central tendon which joins the lower ribs. How many of you sat down and then let your ribs drop down a second time? We have 12 pairs of ribs. The emphasis here is on must quietly. go there will be a gasping sound. During normal breathing the diaphragm descends about 1 cm but during strenuous breathing it can descend as much as 10 cms. Ribs 8-10 can move outwards and these are the ribs we concentrate on. The intercostal muscles move the ribs and the diaphragm forms the bottom of the thorax and the top of the abdomen. During normal breathing out (exhalation) the muscles are relaxing. The diaphragm and the external intercostals muscles relax causing the ribs to depress. As the lungs fill with air the diaphragm will move downwards. giving plenty of space for the lungs to expand. Stand up and sit down again. In order to breathe to speak we need to use our intercostal muscles and our diaphragm. consequently lifting up your shoulders or any other movement around the neck and shoulders cannot increase the size of your thorax. If you lift your shoulders and think. as in sport or trained speaking the abdominal muscles and the internal intercostals contract. steady. This requires our ribs to move outwards and sideways. . Your lungs need room to expand. the sternum and the spine. Ribs 1-7 are fixed and cannot move. It is also important that your posture is correct. Ribs 11 and 12 are floating ribs and when we sit down badly. ready. If you place your hands on your ribs just above your waist and breathe in you should be able to feel your ribs move outwards. This is a skill which has to be practiced. Good breath control is essential for good speech but it must appear natural. we rest the top half of our body on these ribs. As the air is used up the diaphragm returns to its normal position pushing the air out. Breathe in through your nose as this will protect your vocal cords. it does not come naturally.26 When we are asleep or resting the air enters our body slowly and escapes quickly. Other muscles become active only after forceful breathing. Between the ribs are the external intercostals muscles and when these contract they elevate the ribs. When speaking we need to inhale quickly and quietly. Breathing through your mouth will dry out your vocal cords so it is essential that anyone with a sore throat breathes through the nose.

Clarity is the hallmark of a good speaker. Better articulation results in better understanding. More often as not, the message is lost in pronouncing and accent barriers. The content and the significance are lost in misunderstanding. Sounds are shaped by various articulatory organs whose proper coordination makes one speak in a lucid manner. Therefore, articulation exercises are very necessary as they hone the verbal communication exercises. Practicing the articulation exercises regularly will make you more understandable to your audience. Good articulation always has an impact on the listeners. Articulation is often the thin line, which divides a speaker from an orator. However, since everyone is not blessed with a coherent speech, articulation exercises will make him or her a clear speaker. Speech imperfection does not only result from speech impediment, as most people, because of language and cultural differences fail to speak with clarity. Read the article below to know more on how you can straighten your voice, and speak smoothly, through these articulation exercises.

Consonants need to variously engage the tongue. Jaw and Velum. Aveolar Ridge. Velum and so on play a big part in the shape and consequently the nature of the sound that you make.43 Articulation Articulation relates to the way the sounds are shaped during the process of singing and speech. With the soft palate raised a singer can place the vowel sounds onto the palate allowing the sound to resonate in this area. The tone and volume of the sound can be adjusted by raising and lowering the palate and by the shape of the palate felt across the cheek bones. You can feel this in your cheek bones. a sound placed right in the centre will have a more operatic feel whilst a sound placed towards the edge could be used to create a more soulful vibe like the one Aretha Franklin or Whitney Houston might employ.
