This week, we’ll explore how consonants feel on their own, using the same words we used to explore vowels in the previous episode, using feet, mouth, syllable, and of course, the fragment of Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18: Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Just as with the vowels, we’ll explore the sounds, not the letters, and the different sound combinations they produce when pronounced together. 

What You Will Learn In This Episode:

– How different qualities of fricative and plosive sounds feel in the mouth

– How to evaluate which consonants’ sounds feel valuable by putting the vowels back in

– Using consonants to emphasise the essential parts of our speech 

Consonants’ sounds are vital to adding clarity to the words of our speech. Even when making serious announcements in the corporate world, we can voice our speech in a compelling, engaging and expressive way by paying attention to how we produce those sounds.
