Hello there! This is the "Sounds American" channel.
In this video we’re going to talk about the American vowel sound /ɪ/, as in the word "it".
You can also hear this sound in words like "big," "gym," "English," or "image."
We’ll be using a special phonetic symbol - /ɪ/ - for this sound.
The /ɪ/ is one of the two most frequent vowel sounds in American English, but it exists in less than 20% of world languages, so many people may distort it or replace with the /i/ sound, as in the word "be".
Let’s find out how to make this sound.
OK. To pronounce the /ɪ/ sound, you should to focus on the correct position of your tongue.
Slightly open your mouth, spread your lips and relax them.
Raise your tongue high in your mouth and push it to the front. The tip of your tongue can be lowered just behind your bottom front teeth.
Remember, the /ɪ/ is a relaxed sound, so your tongue and lips should be relaxed, and your tongue should be at the front of your mouth.
Now, let’s try saying it: /ɪ/, /ɪ/, /ɪ/.
Now, let’s practice this sound in some words.
You’ll see a word on the screen and hear its pronunciation. Like this.
You’ll have a few seconds to pronounce the word, if you want to.
Let’s pause for a moment and review the key points.
Your tongue should be relaxed, raised high in your mouth and pushed to the front.
Let’s continue practicing.
You’re done! Congratulations!
By the way, in most cases the /ɪ/ is written by the letter 'i', so spelling words with this sound is fairly easy.
And more on the spelling:
the /ɪ/ is represented by the letter 'i' in 73% of words with this sound.
Less often it’s written by the letter 'e', like in the word "English," or by the letter 'a', like in the word "image," and sometimes by the letter 'y', like in the word "gym."
Thanks for watching! Hope you find it useful.

This is the /ɪ/ sound. It is a Vowel sound and it’s technical name is the ‘Near-Close Near-Front Unrounded Vowel’. Remember that the key to pronunciation s physical and the name tells us about how the sound is made physically. In this case your tongue is close to the top and the front of your mouth. Unrounded refers to your lips because they are stretched out as if you are smiling and not rounded..
All vowels are made through the mouth and are voiced so you vibrate your vocal chords to make the sound.
It is similar to the /i:/ sound, but it is shorter.
/ɪ/ not /i:/.
To produce the sound put your tongue close to the top and the front of your mouth, and stretch out your lips, then make a short voiced sound with your mouth closed.

This video is part of our series on phonetics and pronunciation for learners of English as a foreign language.
Phonetics is the science of pronunciation. It can be helpful for people learning English because one of the most difficult things about the language is the spelling and pronunciation. English is not very phonetic and as a result the same letters are often pronounced in many different ways in different words.
The IPA helps by providing a way to write words as they are pronounced. The normal alphabet only has 26 characters but there are 44 different sounds that are used to pronounce words. As well as that, most word in English originate from other languages like Greek, Latin and French to name just a few and in many cases the the language of origin influences how the word is pronounced.
The IPA provides a symbol (phoneme) for each sound so the correct pronunciation can be written or printed in dictionaries.
This video along with the others in our pronunciation series helps language learners to hear the correct pronunciation and also to know how to produce the sound of each phoneme.
