    Correct pronunciation of the letter T, as in Time

    Hi guys, ive just found an old book pronuncation book, and while flicking through it, I noticed that the (T) is not articulated with the meeting of the top and bottom teeth, but with a quick expulsion of air, and movement of the tongue from the alveolar ridge, while keeping the teeth slightly seperated throughout.

    Ive always pronounced (T) with my teeth, it sounds so much more harsh than when I tried it the other way.

    Does anyone pronounce (T) that way?

    If you mean with the tongue on the alveolar ridge rather than the teeth, yes - nearly all native speakers of BrE that I have ever met.
