The TH Sound


There are two sounds represented by the letters TH in English. They have exactly the same formation except that one is spoken without voice, as in 'thick', and the other is said with voice, as in 'those'. They are known technically as dental fricatives.

Formation of the TH sound


To form this sound

The soft palate is raised to prevent the passage of air through the nose. The tip of the tongue is held lightly against the upper front teeth, while the sides of the tongue hold the upper side teeth. Air is forced between the tongue tip and the teeth with audible friction. During the formation of TH, as in 'those', the voice is sounded. During the formation of TH, as 'thick', the voice is not sounded.




Substitution of F and V

In certain varieties of English, notably Cockney, F and V are directly substituted for TH.
