How to say Television

Sound is the voiced minimal pair consonant of -sh'. It is made the same way in the mouth. The teeth are almost closed together. The lips are pushed forward. Lift the tongue tip slightly towards the roof of the mouth and allow the sides of the tongue to touch the inside of the side teeth. Blow a little air over the tip of the tongue while switching on voice (sound in the throat), at the same time.
