    Am I releasing /ʍ/ correctly?

    Please tell me whether or not I am releasing the /ʍ/ phoneme ("wh" sound) accordingly.

    I couldn't hear anything, although the response seemed to be playing, as the bar did move.

    Maybe others will chime in, and see if it's a problem with the actual recording, or just my computer.

    Re: Am I releasing /ʍ/ correctly?

    It is very quiet, but there is sound. They sounded OK to me, though you are making the rest of the word too long sometime- wheat for example, though I don't know whether this is because you're trying to focus on the sound.
