Minimal Pair /b/ and /v/
Below is a list of words that vary only by one having the sound /b/ and the other the sound /v/.
You can use this list to practise the sounds, or as a list of words to be careful in pronouncing.
/v/ has the same mouth shape as /f/, but using your voice. Put your top teeth on your bottom lip. It is possible to extend this sound for as long as you like.If you are practising on your own, try saying both words and making sure your pronunciation of each is different, for example by looking at your mouth shape in the mirror.
