Pronunciation

The Sound of “IY”

In this unit, you saw the words “tight,” “price” and “size.” Each of these words uses the sound “iy.” For some students, it’s hard to hear the difference between the “iy” sound in “mine” and the similar sounds in “man” and “main.”

Listen to the following list of words. If a word has the “IY” sound, write “yes”. If the word does not have the “IY” sound, write “no.” The first three are done for you.

Listen to the following sentences and circle the word you hear. An example is done for you.
