The Letter T (The English Alphabet)



The letter T is the twentieth Letter in The English Alphabet.  It is also the sixteenth Consonant in The English Alphabet.

As with every Letter in The English Alphabet, The Letter T has two versions in the written form.  These two versions are called:  The Upper-Case and The Lower-Case.

 


The Upper-Case T looks like this:

T

The Lower-Case T looks like this:

t


Notice that the main difference between The Upper-Case and The Lower-Case T is the size and that the top bar is lowered a bit (similar to The Letter F.)  You will find that this is the same for quite a few Letters in The Alphabet.


Pronunciation


By itself.  The Letter T is only pronounced one way in The English Language.. ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

The Letter T


  • Tambourine
  • Tiger
  • Tango
  • Tangerine
  • Tulip

 

(Notice!!! — Though the picture to the right, is of a train, and the word “Train” DOES, in-fact, start with The Letter T — it is NOT a good example for the pronunciation of The Letter T.   This is because, when combined with The Letter R, The Letter T actually sounds like The Ch Combination.)

 


Notice


As you learn The Common Tongue of The English Language, you will notice that The Letter T is often combined with The Letter H.  When this happens, it is pronounced in two different ways.  The Voiced and Un-Voiced Th Sound

When combined with The letter H (like this: Sh, sh) the two Letters, together, have a different sound.


The Voiced Th Sound


  • This
  • That
  • These
  • Those
  • Shackle

The Un-Voiced Th Sound


  • Thanks
  • Through
  • Thorough
  • Thing
  • Thimble

(You will learn more about this in a later lesson)
