The “B” is made when we bring our lips together to stop the airflow from leaving the mouth.  Before we open our lips to let the airflow out, we need to make sure to turn on the motor (vibrating our vocal folds).  The vibration of the vocal folds is mostly responsible us to produce a sound similar but noticeably different than “P”.

 

The “P” sound is called the cognate pair of “B”.  In short, this means that they are produced in a similar fashion, but differ by one of the sounds requiring the vocal folds to vibrate during production and one sound to have not have the vocal folds vibrating.

By placing the back of your tongue on the top of your mouth, the air produce from the lungs is stopped.  Once the tongue is lowered, the air forcefully shoots of the mouth to produce that crisp “k” or “c” sound.

A fun and tasty way to teach this sounds is to press down the tip the tongue with a lollipop or sucker so that the back of the tongue elevates.  A video of this activity can be seen here:

A common error that kid’s have when trying to produce the “c” or “k” sound is a phonological process (fancy word for a pattern of errors) called fronting.

Fronting is when sounds that are produced in the back of the mouth(“c”, “k”, “g”) are replaced with sounds that are produced in the front of the mouth(“t”, “d”)

Examples of fronting:
A child says “otay” for “okay”, “tat” for “cat”, “pumptin” for “pumpkin”
