Subject: English as a Second Language
Many ESL students have a hard time differentiating between with /p/ and /b/ phonemes. How are /p/ and /b/ pronounced differently?
/p/ and /b/ are both bilabial sounds. In these sounds, you start with you mouth closed. The only difference between /p/ and /b/ is that /p/ is purely a movement of air, while /b/ is a vocalization. To put it simply, you only use your air and lips to say /p/, but you must use your air, lips, and voice to say /b/. Touch your throat to feel the difference. Your throat should move only with /b/.
What verb tense is seen in this sentence? "I am eating a sandwich."
