Esh (majuscule: Ʃ Unicode U+01A9, minuscule: ʃ Unicode U+0283) is a character used in conjunction with the Latin script, which represents the voiceless postalveolar fricative (English sh).
The open-mid front unrounded vowel, or low-mid front unrounded vowel, is a type of vowel sound used in some spoken languages. The symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet that represents this sound is a Latinised variant of the Greek lowercase epsilon, ⟨ɛ⟩.
The letter Ʊ (minuscule: ʊ), called horseshoe or sometimes bucket or sometimes inverted omega, is a letter of the International Phonetic Alphabet used to transcribe a near-close near-back rounded vowel.
The International Phonetic Association uses the term voiceless postalveolar fricative only for the sound [ʃ], but it also describes the voiceless postalveolar non-sibilant fricative [ɹ̠̊˔], for which there are significant perceptual differences.
The sound /ʃ/ is a voiceless, alveo-palatal, fricative consonant. Lightly press the middle of your tongue between your alveolar ridge and your soft palate. The sides of your tongue should lightly touch your back upper teeth. Breathe out and allow air to flow past your tongue.
To make the /dʒ/ sound:
Place the tip of your tongue just behind the hard ridge at the front of the top of your mouth. Vibrate your vocal cords, and push air forward out of your mouth. Stop the air completely at first, and then release it.
/ʧ/ is pronounced without your tongue moving and with more air released than with /t/. It is similar to the sound of a sneeze, and the air released should be able to move a piece of paper or be felt on your hand five centimetres in front of your mouth.
/ʊ/is a high, back, lax vowel. To make it, your tongue should be lifted high in the mouth (slightly lower than /u/), and shifted toward the back. Keep your lips relaxed and slightly open. Then, vibrate your vocal cords as you push air out of your mouth.
To make the /ʃ/ sound:
To make /ʃ/, place the tip of your tongue at the front of the top of your mouth, behind where the /s/ is produced. Push air between the top of your mouth and the tip of your tongue. Do not vibrate your vocal cords.
It is similar to the /ɔ:/ sound, but it is shorter. /ɒ/ not /ɔ:/. To produce the sound put your tongue low and at the back of your mouth and lightly push your lips together while making a short voiced sound.
Ezh (Ʒ ʒ) /ˈɛʒ/, also called the "tailed z", is a letter whose lower case form is used in the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), representing the voiced postalveolar fricative consonant.
Latin epsilon or open E (majuscule: Ɛ, minuscule: ɛ) is a letter of the extended Latin alphabet, based on the lowercase of the Greek letter epsilon (ε).
Its pronunciation in Lithuanian is [eː], contrasting with ę, which is pronounced a lower [ɛː] (formerly nasalized [ɛ̃ː]) and e, pronounced [ɛ, ɛː]. This character is also used in Croatian to denote the old yat alongside the more usual ě.
∃! (mathematics) The symbol used in predicate calculus, etc, to represent the unique existential quantifier, meaning "there exists exactly one".
The Russian letter "й" is called "и краткое" (it is pronounced [i kratkaye]). We represent its sound as [j], that is, a shorter sound than "и" similar to the sound of "y" in "oyster" or "boy".
This diphthong sounds like the word 'air'. Letters used to show this sound are: 'air' as in 'hair' /heə/, 'ear' as in 'bear' /beə/, 'are' as in 'care' /keə/, and 'aire' as in 'Claire' /kleə/.
The close-mid central rounded vowel, or high-mid central rounded vowel, is a type of vowel sound. The symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet that represents this sound is ⟨ɵ⟩, a lowercase barred letter o.
The OW /aʊ/ vowel is called a diphthong. Diphthongs are made of two sounds, so that means a diphthong starts as one vowel, then moves to a second vowel. You should feel your articulators move as you say the sound.
/ʤ/ is made of /d/ and /z/. This sound is written as 'j', 'ge'; eg. in 'age' or 'gi'; eg. in 'giant'.
3.1.1 /ʧ ʤ/: Palato-alveolar Affricate
Like the plosive sounds, they completely obstruct or stop the airflow in the oral tract; but unlike the plosive sounds, do not abruptly release the pent up air with an explosion, but by gentle release. This is why they are called affricate consonant sounds.
/eɪ/ is a diphthong sound which means it is a combination of two vowel sounds that are pronounced within the same syllable. The /eɪ/ sound is a combination of /e/ and /ɪ/ or /i:/. Like vowels the diphthongs are all made through the mouth and are voiced which means that you vibrate you vocal chords to make the sound.
