Dear : Teacher
I find difficult when i do these exercises. The problem occures with Nouns or Verbs + "-s"/"-es".(Some words after being added e/es are pronounciated s/iz or z)
houses - faces - horses - palaces
Can you show me the rule to read these words?
I'm very grateful to you that you could help me! Sorry for my bad English.
PS:I'm learning English by myself !
They're called allophones.
[s] after voiceless sounds (p, t, k)
[z] after voiced sounds (b, d, g, l, n, m)
[Iz] after sibilants (s, z, ch, sh, j/dzh, x)
garages <affricate dzh as in jump>
Does that help?
