ARTICULATION EXERCISES Practise slowly at first, then gradually increase until the various combinations can be uttered with great rapidity: bā-på bē-pe bi-pi bo-po bū-pū boo-poo
boi-poi bă-pă bě-pě bi-pi bo-po bŭ-pů boo-poo bou-pou
Also bl, br, dr, fl, fr, gl, gr, kl, kr, pl, pr, sl, sm, sn, sp, spl, st, str, thr, tr.
Pronounce e with extreme extension of the lips sidewise. Pronounce ah with the jaw well dropped.
Pronounce oo with the lips projected as much as possible.
Repeat rapidly: e-ah-00; 00-ah-e; 00-e-ah; ah-e-00; ah-00e; e-00-ah.
There should be a sudden recoil of the lips in ip, of the tip of the tongue in it, and of the back of the tongue in ik.
Repeat rapidly. Also with ib, id and ig. For elasticity:
Jaw. Relax jaw. Move from side to side and forward and back. Repeat while singing ah.
Throat. Open the mouth as in yawning. Gently raise the soft palate. Practise will enable the pupil to contract the uvula as to make it entirely disappear from sight.
Tongue. Open the mouth, keeping the tongue flat, with tip lightly touching the lower teeth. Without arching the tongue thrust it straight forward and draw it back as far as possible several times.
Again open the mouth wide, and in dotting fashion continue with the tongue along the upper and lower lips. Reverse.
Fold back tip of tongue with the aid of the teeth.
