TOPIC: The Vowel Sounds /iə/ and /eə/
Description of the Vowel Sounds /iə/ and /eə/
These two sounds are diphthongs meaning that they have double sounds. The double sounds are achieved through a glide from the initial sound to the other through the process of their articulation. Thus we have the sound /iə/ as we have in words like
/iə/ beard, tear, here, cheer.
/eə/ air, pear, their, share.
Listen to your teacher pronounce these sounds and repeat after him/her.
- Identify the diphthongs in the following words: really, here, heir, near, weird, idea, weird, air.
Meaning of Synonyms
A synonym is a word that has the same meaning as another word.
