You are familiar with the sound /j/. You remember that it occurs in words such as you /ju:/ and use  (n) /ju:s/ or use (vb) /ju:z/. You remember too that the sound does not occur at the end of words.

In this section, we are going to consider words in which /j/ occurs in the middle, following another consonant.

Consider the following examples: human /hju:mən/, endure /ґndjƱə(r)/; cure /kjƱə(r)/. You must ensure that you pronounce the above words appropriately, taking time to sound /j/ where it occurs.

Other words in which /j/ follows a consonant are: humour, future, curious, tune, sue, suit, value, refuse, million, guardian, during, and January.

Class Activity:

List ten (10) words in which /j/ follows a consonant. Using a dictionary, look up and practice the correct pronunciation of the words.
