Games: Some th words

A consonant digraph is when two consonants come together to create one sound.

The word digraph comes from Greek and can be split into: di (two) and graph (written).

These examples use the letters t and h to spell two slightly different sounds – the unvoiced th (/θ/) and the voiced th (/ð/).

But fear not, understanding these sounds is simpler than it seems!

The unvoiced th (/θ/) is produced when air passes between the tongue and the upper front teeth, as in words like think and thick.

On the other hand, the voiced th (/ð/) occurs when the vocal cords vibrate while making the sound, as heard in words like this and brother.

Click on the speaker icons to hear each of these th words pronounced. Repeat them. Do you notice how your tongue changes position?
