  12. 12. MID VOWELS • Lips loosely spread, tongue tenser than for i: (egg, left, said, head) • Lips relaxed and neutrally spread, as though you were completely exhausted (about- paper- banana, nation) • Lips relaxed and neutrally spread (shirt, her, word, further) • Lips loosely rounded (fork, call, snore, taught)
