    month/mouth cloth/clothe

    I have difficulties in the pronunciation between month and mouth. Is there any difference in pronunciation? The same question reffering to cloth/clothe.
    HAVE A NICE DAY!

    mouth -- MAUth
    cloth -- CLAWth
    clothe -- CLOWth

    At least we can send it indirectly...

    btw. Be aware that the pronounciation is rather AE than BE english.
    I'm still looking for a similar site with straight BE pronounciation.

    As a guide to British pronunciation it might be useful to listen to the BBC.

    In month, mouth, and cloth, the last "th" sound is
    similar.

    However, in clothe, the sound is as in the or mother.


    cloth -- klawth
    cloths -- klawth z (plural)

    clothe -- kloth ("clo" as in "close" and "the" as in "mother")
