Successful speakers articulate distinctly, so listeners can interpret them correctly. They use the tongue, teeth, lips and jaws to produce sounds that are clear and distinct. Some speakers have trouble being understood because they do not form ending consonants distinctly or because they swallow word ending like –ing. Others have difficulty being understood because they fail to articulate sound combinations. Instead of forming both sounds of the combination, they form only one of the sounds. For example, they leave the d in nd or ld or t in ft, st or pt.

Severe articulation problems require the assistance of a communications disorder specialist. However, most articulation problems are created by lack of care on the part of the speaker or by lack of awareness of how sounds should be formed.

During the following exercises you should exaggerate the sounds to help you develop the ability to create them satisfactory. During normal conversation, create sounds clearly and distinctly. Be careful to avoid exaggerating the sounds during normal conversation, since this make people consider your speech affected. Once you have spent speaking time practicing how to form sounds, you will soon find yourself speaking more clearly and distinctly.

You need to have good articulation to help you present your term paper in such a way that all your points can be understood. When you pronounce some words in your term paper wrongly, your whole term paper might mean something else denying you vital marks. You need to work on your articulation and never ignore it.


Essay writing always kept me on my toes

If you have ever been in college or one of those hectic universities, you understand how things can be sometimes. Students are always running up and down with so much to do yet with time looking as if it is too short. Sometimes it looks as though the days are less than 24 hours and one feels as if they have been robbed of the precious time which they would have spent covering more ground in their academic work. I found this to be so especially in my last year as I had to juggle with a number of things and even I can remember one day I had to go to the lecture room with my hair unkempt. I was thinking about an essay writing assignment I had and wondering what to do with it. There was a lecture coming up in the next few hours and the guy who was to lecture us was one of the best renowned engineering gurus in the United States. That was something I could not miss especially in the light of my admiration for him and the desire I had to one day work with him in this industry.

Essay writing had been my worrying field all through and I knew I had to do something about it if at all I was to make it in my papers. I knew that there were only two options for me. Either I stare failure in the face or engage with an essay writing service provider to help me in this. I knew that the first option was not what I wanted and I had to do something. I went online for a short research so as to see where I could get help. I found a number of essay writers who had advertised their services and there again I was faced with a serious dilemma. Which of these providers was genuine? Which one could I work with without fear of failure? I had to make a quick decision which I knew will have an effect.

I thought of scanning a few providers to see the customer reviews before I could settle for one. I noted that most of them were known for good work and I gave that work to one of them. Well, the rest is history but one thing I can say is that I was helped in my hour of need.
