  3. 3. Isolated sound changes: Explosive soundExplosive sound on pronouncing t / p / c etc In most American dialects, speakers do not fully explode the sound of the letter ‘T’. In particular, be careful not to substitute a ‘D’ when the ‘T’ falls between two vowels, as in WRITER. Matter, later, sitting, better, after The beautiful British writer scattered the letters. Betty bought a bit of butter to make the batter, but the butter was bitter, so Betty bought a bit of better butter to make the bitter batter better!
  4. 4. Try some of these for explosive sounds. Mr. Tongue Twister tried to train his tongue to twist and turn, and twirl and trick, to learn the letter ‘T’. Peter’s pa Pete poked the pea patch to pick a peck of peas for the poor pink pig in the pine hole pig-pen. Can Cathy count the cans, cats and caterpillars on the carpet.
