Sound Production; H and the Elimination of the "Intrusive H."
Woods, Howard B.
This booklet, part of a course for teaching English to adult Francophones, is designed to assist the student in learning to produce the "h" sound in English and to eliminate the "intrusive h," replacing it with the glottal stop. Sections one and two describe the interlanguage situation for each case, present techniques to guide the student's pronunciation of the English sounds, and provide background information to explain the reasons underlying these difficulties. Section three contains practice sentences for both difficulties. (AM)
