Our last Wasco language lesson covered the sounds in the alphabet. This week's lessons will cover the alphabet in more depth. Follow along with us using the sound chart printed on the latest time OO language page. The drawing of the face shows the various parts inside the mouth identifying where the sounds are formed. This Wasco alphabet sound chart is being introduced to be used as a
reference by people just beginning to learn the law school language. Learning where the sounds of the letters of the alphabet originate. It is just the beginning of actually speaking the language. Learning to speak the language will take time and dedication. In-depth language material will be available in class for those who wish to continue the language learning process. Much of the Wasco alphabet sounds the same as English. The following letters represent those similar sounds a b c h d h e or s. J K L M N P S S A Shore show t w o
y and z. That's more than half of the Wasco alphabet. So you're already halfway there even before you start. However remember that the rest of the letters will have sounds that will be much different from the English language. In the following week's lessons. We will go through every letter of the alphabet and describe how to make the sound it represents. The facial side view printed in the latest issue of this time who will help you to identify the various parts of the soundtrack to where the sounds are created. Thank you for listening into the introductory part of the Wasco sound chart today. Tomorrow we will begin to cover the individual letters of the Wasco alphabet and where the sounds are formed. Tuesday's lesson. Thank you for tuning in to K. WSO for today's Wasco language lesson. We will begin
today by starting with the first part of the Wasco sound chart alphabet and where the sounds are formed in the mouth and throat. The first symbol looks like an apostrophe. Yeah and is known as the glottal stop used to modify sounds. It is made when the throat is made tense and the vocal chords are closed. Closing and opening the lid to the esophagus and stopping the passage of air. Examples of the glottal stop are as follows. We ish. We ish bluejay eek not on eek not on magpie. The second symbol is known as the accent mark. Wasco words are normally stressed on the next to last syllable.
When the stress is on a different syllable the accent mark is used. It indicates where a person will need to put more stress into the sound the a sound is made by the tongue being slightly arched between the middle and lowest part of the mouth. It actually sounds like the ah in the English word papa. Examples of the ah sound dubba dubba here do a hi Dewi hi cal e-collar y e Kawa badger. The A with two dots or sound is made by the tongue being slightly arched between the
middle and lowest part of the mouth. It is always stressed. It sounds like the A in the English word can. An example is da gash da gash very yellow or orange. The bee sound is made by pressing the lips together and stopping the outgoing breath then releasing it with the vocal cords vibrating. It sounds like the bee in the English word boy. Examples are quite by their EBIT and EBIT Bitterroot.
The CD sound is made by placing the tip of the tongue against the back of the front teeth then releasing the air softly. It sounds like the TS combination in the English word cats. Examples are what. What Silverside salmon. What socks. What socks. Lone Pine Salo Salo. Salo Salo snail. The hard c sound is made by placing the tip of the tongue against the back of the front teeth then releasing the air with the throat being tense and the vocal chords closed and then
popping open. It sounds like a C with a catch in the throat. Examples are its own nose its own nose. If you eat a known eat a known bird ant. The C-h sound is made by placing the tongue against the gum Ridge and the roof of the mouth then releasing the air softly. It sounds like C H as in the English word church. Examples are. Each odd bit K'naan each female teacher each child luckly
each child luckly her key. Watch pish watch pish blue back salmon. The hard to see 8 sound is made like C-h but with a throat made tense and the vocal chords closed and then popping open. It sounds like the C-H above with the catch in the throat. Examples are each a known each in known Eagle each on each onc dear. Each eye each eye rattlesnake. Today we covered the first seven letters and two marks of the Wasco alphabet. I continued to practice forming these letters within your mouth and stay aware of
how the sounds are developed. Tomorrow we will continue with more letters of the alphabet. Wednesday's lesson it took to do it. Good day. Today we'll continue to cover more of the Wasco alphabet. Listen and follow along by forming the sounds as directed. As we continue to practice these letters of the alphabet you should be able to start pronouncing the written language.

Today's lessons will begin with the Bard l sound through the sh sounds. Some of the sounds will be letters of the alphabet that have special sounds.
