    itīs sound

    Hello!

    In pronouncing the it's sound, is it possible to have the tongue a bit relaxed against the teeth ridge to block the air passage just to change immediately the articulation for the 's' phoneme?
    Thanks in advanced.

    I don't have a problem, I just want to know if it is possible not to have the tip of the tongue completely raised so as to change to the passing of air for the 's'
