The /p/ Sound

TonguePlace the tip of your tongue behind your upper front teeth, or slightly below them, so that the air is completely blocked in the oral cavity.
LipsRound your lips tightly, creating a seal to prevent any air from escaping through your mouth.
JawKeep your jaw relatively tense and stable, without any movement.
TeethThe teeth should not be involved in the production of this sound.
AirBuild up air pressure behind the blockage created by your tongue and lips, and then release the air suddenly by popping open the lips, causing a burst of air to be expelled.
Vocal ChordsDo not use your vocal cords to produce this sound, as it is an unvoiced sound.
