Correct Production

The g sound is a back sound. It is made by placing the back of the tongue against the soft palate in the back of the mouth. 

If you’re wondering what the soft palate is, it is the little bit of soft roof area in the back of the mouth.

You can help your child practice by placing their tongue in the correct position against the soft palate using a tongue depressor. 

Once you’ve located the soft palate with the tongue depressor then place the back part of your tongue against the soft palate.

You can also have your child or student practice their tongue placement and tongue tip in front of a mirror.

The g sound is also a voiced sound so your voice box or vocal cords should vibrate. 

You can tell that their voice is turned on by touching your voice box on your neck and feeling it vibrate.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the g sound can be a hard g, such as before a consonant “glass” or before a back vowel (a, o, u) as in “goat” or at the end of a word like “log”. 

A soft g is when the “g” sound makes the /j/ sound when the g sound is followed by the vowels (e, i, or y) such as “giant” or a word of Greek origin that begins with the letters gy- such as the word “gymnastics”.

Word Positions: G Words Speech Therapy 

Initial position of words.

The initial position of the g sound is at the beginning of a word. For example, “goat” or “got”.

Medial Position of Words

When the g sound is in the middle of a word it is in the medial position of a word, such as “hamburger”, “tiger”, and “dragon”.

Final Positions of Words

The final positions of words are when the target sound is at the end of a word. For example, “mug” or “dig”.

For your unlimited use, I’ve gone ahead and gathered over 600 g words to work on your student’s or child’s speech. 

Word Level: G Words Speech Therapy

One way to practice is to have your child or student practice their target sound at the word level.

Velar fronting.

Velar fronting is when a back sound such as the /g/ sound is made in the front of the mouth, such as the /d/ sound.

For example, your child or student might say the word “date” for the word “gate”.

If your child or student is velar fronting or in other words using the /d/ sound in place of the /g/ sound a great way to work on reducing the velar fronting is to use minimal pairs. 

By using minimal pairs the child then practices the two sounds side by side and practices hearing and producing the different sounds. 

Typical and Atypical Phonological Processes and Age Ranges by Speech Therapy Store – If you want to learn more about phonological processes, such as velar fronting and what ages these processes are typical and what processes are atypical then be sure to check out my chart.

If so, here are a few ideas to do language skills alongside g articulation therapy.

  • Speech Thera py Articulation Fortune Teller Origami by Speech Therapy Store – Not only can you work on the g sound as well as a ton of other sounds it’s fun! Have your language students work on following directions, requesting materials (scissors, paper, etc.), and practice taking turns.

  • Dough Articulation: K, G, F, S by Jenna Rayburn Kirk from Speech Room News – Have some students work on their G sound while others can play along while working on following directions, making requests (supplies, colors, etc.), as well as working on categories, such as what category are a dog, frog, and pig in?

Auditory Bombardment

Sometimes the first thing a language therapist or speech-language pathologist might do to work on a new sound for a child with an articulation disorder at the elementary school level would be to work on auditory bombardment. 

Auditory bombardment is when you say words with only speech sounds that the child or student is struggling with and provide correct production examples. 

For example, if the child is working on the g sound you might read a list of 20 g words to the child so they can hear the correct production of that sound repeatedly. 

See the list of g words above and start by saying 20 words to your child or student while producing the correct g sound to model and allow them to hear the correct production over and over again.

This is simply a listening activity for the child or student to give them the opportunity to hear the correct production of the sound they are struggling to produce themselves.

In Conclusion: G Words Speech Therapy

We hope you have found this article helpful for working on your child or student’s g sound.

G Words for Speech Therapy (Word Lists and Activities)

If you’re a speech-language pathologist looking for a quick list of initial and final g target words to practice during therapy, this article provides the perfect starting place! You’ll also find excellent ideas for making speech therapy more fun with a variety of engaging games, resources, and articulation activities for teaching the g sound. This blog post provides a list of initial and final g words, and it also suggests a variety of strategies for teaching correct placement. If you’re interested, you may also want to check out this article on eliciting k sounds.

This article contains g word lists and articulation activities for speech therapy to target the g sound.

Correct Position of the Tongue for the G Sound

The g sound is a lingua-velar stop sound. It is a voiced sound, meaning the vocal folds vibrate during production. The correct production of g involves the front of the tongue (the tongue tip) being placed behind the front lower teeth. The back part of your tongue is lifted, or raised, during g production. It makes contact with the soft palate. This forms a seal. Air pressure builds up behind the tongue. When the soft palate seal breaks, we hear an explosion of air as it is released into the oral cavity.

Reference: Peña-Brooks Adriana, and M. N. Hegde. Articulation and Phonological Disorders: Assessment and Treatment Resource Manual , PRO-ED, Austin, TX, 2007,

Common G Sound Errors

Sometimes, students with articulation disorders or phonological disorders have difficulty producing the g sound. The g sound is considered to be a “back sound”. Young children may substitute sounds made in the back of the mouth (like velar sounds, k and g), for sounds made in the front of the mouth (such or t or d). This is a phonological process called velar fronting .

A child might also completely leave off endings sounds, such as the g sound. An example would be saying “dah” for “dog”. This is a phonological process known as final consonant deletion . Read about more phonological processes , which can impact the intelligibility of a child’s speech.

These are g words for speech therapy and activities to teach the g sound and target velar fronting.

How To Teach the G Sound in Speech Therapy

If you are a speech language pathologist working on this target sound with a student, there are many different ways to elicit production.

Articulation Tools for Teaching the G Sound

There are a few tools a speech therapist may like to have on hand when teaching the g sound to young children in speech and language therapy. Typically, these tools include a typodont, a mirror, and a tongue depressor.

A typodont is a helpful tool because it can be used to show lingual placement. I often tap behind the bottom front teeth on a typodont to remind my students to keep the tongue tip down.

A speech therapist might consider using a mirror in speech therapy in order to provide extra visual feedback.

A tongue depressor might be helpful to help assist with keeping the tongue in the correct position.

Strategies for Teaching the G Sound in Speech Therapy

A speech language therapist might find it beneficial to try giving this sound a silly name. It could be something like “your gulping sound”.

Need some ideas for tongue placement? Velars (k and g) can sometimes be elicited by having your student lay on his back. This can help get the tongue into the correct position.

I often have to place a lot of emphasis on inhibiting tongue tip elevation. Frequently, I give several reminders to my students when I see the tongue tip lifting. I will use descriptions like “this is your tongue DOWN sound”. I also often say things like “touch your bottom front teeth”.

Simple reminders such as, “Uh oh! Your tongue tip went up!”, paired with a hand motion are a great way to help students understand how to place and position the front of the tongue and the back of the tongue.

Many students find auditory bombardment helpful. This involves reading a story, or a list of words, to your student. The list includes the target sound. The student needs to listen to, but not repeat, the words.

SLPs may wish to use the word lists included in this post for auditory bombardment.

Finally, school SLPs may wish to incorporate minimal pairs into articulation therapy sessions.

Speech Sound Word Lists for the G Sound

The following word lists contain words with the initial g sound, medial g sound, and final g sound. These articulation word lists allow the SLP to easily work on a target sound in speech therapy. Quickly pull these word lists up during your speech therapy session and pair them with the game or activity of your choice. These lists are helpful for a student with an articulation disorder. To practice at the sentence level, have students combine words and generate sentences.

Initial G Word List for Speech Therapy

Here is a list of initial g words (g at the beginning of a word) to use in speech therapy:

Medial G Word List for Speech Therapy

Here is a list of medial g words (g in the middle of a word) to use in speech therapy:

Final G Word List for Speech Therapy

Here is a list of final g words (g in the final position of words) for speech-language pathologists to use in speech therapy:

Speech Therapy Activities for the G Sound

Speech-language pathologists need effective materials to target a variety of speech sounds. Here are articulation activities that a speech therapist can use to target the g sound in speech therapy.

G Words Speech Therapy Articulation Picture Cards

School SLPs will love these articulation speech sound mouth cards , which target a variety of specific speech sounds, including the g sound! For each speech sound, a mouth visual is provided. Target sounds are provided in initial, medial, and final word positions. This visual cue is very effective when trying to teach a new sound in speech therapy!

This is an initial g words speech therapy activity for speech language pathologists to use with young children.

To assemble, simply print out the cards, laminate them, then cut them out. Assemble them together using a binder ring for easy storage. Print them out and send them for home practice to help a child practice with parents or caregivers. These cards offer a fun way to target articulation objectives in speech and language therapy.

Velar Fronting Minimal Pairs

Minimal pairs can be a fantastic way to target velar fronting in speech therapy! These minimal pairs are extremely easy for busy speech-language pathologists to use because every piece needed for a successful session is included on one organized page.

These are minimal pairs for velar fronting (g initial). They can be used in speech therapy to treat phonological disorders.

No more searching through endless cards, trying to find minimal pairs that fit your student’s needs! Auditory bombardment lists, an auditory discrimination activity, and minimal pair words are included on each page. This resource is also included in a Minimal Pairs Bundle .

Digital K and G Articulation Activity

This no print k and g articulation activity is perfect for teletherapy or in-person speech therapy sessions! Target k and g speech sounds at the word level while catching fireflies! After your student says a target word, tap the screen and the firefly will “move” into the jar. It is a simple, yet motivating articulation activity. This resource targets initial k, medial k, final k, initial g, medial g, and final g words. It is also available in a bundle .

Articulation Games for Speech Therapy

Want to try some fun games to make articulation drill more exciting?

Here are some of my favorite suggestions:

How to Teach K Sound: Articulation Activities, and Word Lists for Effective Speech Therapy

How to teach ng sound: articulation activities, and word lists for effective speech therapy, how to teach g sound: articulation activities, and word lists for effective speech therapy.

The “g” sound is a voiced velar plosive, which means that it is produced by briefly stopping the airflow from the lungs using the back of the tongue (velar) and then releasing it in a sudden burst (plosive). The vocal cords vibrate during the production of this sound, which creates a buzzing or humming sensation in the throat.

To produce the “g” sound, you need to raise the back of your tongue towards the soft palate or velum, which is located at the back of your mouth, and then release it while simultaneously pushing air out of your lungs. This creates a sudden burst of sound that is characterized by a low-pitched, vibrating noise. You can try producing this sound by saying the word “go” or “get” and paying attention to the way your tongue and vocal cords work together to create the sound. In phonetics, this sound is represented by the symbol /g/. It is also sometimes referred to as the “voiced velar plosive.”

Here are few tips you can follow to teach the “g” sound:

speech word list g

Demonstrate the sound : Start by demonstrating the “G” sound for your child. Make the sound and have your child watch your lips and mouth movements. Explain that the sound is made by pressing the back of the tongue against the soft palate and releasing it with a voiced sound.

Visual Cue : Show the child how to place the back of their tongue against the soft palate at the back of their mouth, and then release the air with a voiced sound. You can use a mirror to help the child see how their tongue is positioned. You can also use a visual cue such as a picture or flashcard of a “G” to help your child remember the sound.

Understand the sound: Help your child understand that the “G” sound is a voiced consonant made by pressing the back of the tongue against the soft palate and releasing it with a voiced sound.

Practice Blowing: Help your child get used to the sensation of releasing air with their tongue by having them practice blowing out candles, blowing bubbles, or blowing feathers across a table.

Practice Tongue Placement: Show your child how to keep the back of their tongue flat and relaxed while making the “G” sound. You can make it more fun by having them imitate animal sounds, such as a growling dog or a grunting pig, while using the “G” sound.

Practice in Isolation : Once your child has mastered the correct tongue and mouth position, have them practice making the “G” sound on its own without any other sounds.

Add Syllables: After your child has mastered the “G” sound in isolation, have them practice using it in different syllables, such as “ga,” “ge,” and “go.” You can make it more fun by having them say words like “giraffe,” “gum,” and “goofy.”

Practice in Words: Once your child has mastered the “G” sound in syllables, have them practice using it in different words such as “girl,” “goat,” and “green.”

Practice in Phrases: After your child has mastered the “G” sound in words, have them practice using it in phrases like “big girl,” “my goat,” and “green grass.”

Practice in Sentences: Finally, have your child practice using the “G” sound in different sentences such as “I have a big girl bike,” “The goat ate the grass,” and “Green is my favorite color.”

Practice Everywhere: Encourage your child to practice using the “G” sound in different contexts, such as during playtime, mealtime, or while reading books. You can also make it more fun by having them use the “G” sound in different accents or dialects.

Free G interactive audio flashcards featuring words with the “G” sound words can be a useful tool for improving pronunciation and vocabulary.

Each list of articulation sounds contains words with the target sound in the beginning, middle, and end position, including blends when applicable, as well as words that...

  • are common and functional (words we use all day...everyday)
  • are mostly 1 syllable (multi-syllabic words are more difficult)
  • have a phonemic context that don't interfere with production of the target sound (most words)

If "R" is the problem sound using the word "Rope" makes saying the "R" sound harder because the "O" sound is considered a round vowel.

A round vowel is one where you round your lips to say it. Go ahead...try it by saying "O" as in "boat". You rounded your lips didn't you? I thought you might.

Children who have difficulty with the "R" sound tend to say the "W" sound...they say "Wabbit" instead of "Rabbit".

The "W" sound is considered a rounded sound too. Try saying the "W" sound without rounding your lips...you can't because that is how the sound is made.

So by pairing the "R" sound with the "O" sound like in the word "Rope", this makes the word extra difficult for a child who has a problem saying the "R" sound because the "O" that follows the "R" will naturally make them want to round there lips.

Speech & Language Tips for Parents

G Words in Speech Therapy – G Word Lists, Activities & Teaching Tips

' src=

When you’re working on helping your child with their speech and articulation, it’s essential to focus on specific sounds to improve their skills. One of the critical sounds in speech therapy is the G sound. G words can be found in various positions within words: initial, medial, and final. Each position may require slightly different strategies in speech therapy. To address an articulation disorder, speech-language pathologists often use a variety of activities and tools, such as audio recordings, games, and books, to help clients practice the G sound in a fun and engaging way.

A good starting point for working on G words in speech therapy is identifying voice and voiceless pairs. These pairs can help you focus on the correct positioning and airflow needed for accurate G sound production. For example, the voiceless pair for the G sound is the K sound. By practicing words containing both G and K sounds, you can better understand the differences between them and improve your articulation.

Articulation activities play a crucial role in the development of the G sound. Speech-language pathologists often provide clients with word lists containing initial, medial, and final G words. These lists can serve as a foundation for various activities such as flashcards, sentence building, and reading passages. Client-specific activities can also be developed, keeping in mind their interests and preferences.

Constant practice is essential for improving articulation and mastering the G sound. As a client or a speech-language pathologist, incorporating G words into daily routines and communication can be highly beneficial. Encourage conversation, storytelling, and reading materials that focus on G words to reinforce practice and enhance overall progress.

Remember, working on G words in speech therapy is a dynamic and gradual process. As you continue to practice and engage in articulation activities, you’ll notice improvements in your speech and articulation abilities over time. Always approach the process with patience, persistence, and a friendly attitude to ensure success.

Importance of G Sound

Working on the G sound in speech therapy is essential as it helps improve your pronunciation and expands your vocabulary. This  voiced sound  is a common component in the English language and can be found in various words. Mastering the G sound can lead to a boost in confidence when speaking and communicating with others.

The G sound requires proper articulation, involving the use of your soft palate and vocal cords. When pronouncing the G sound, the back of your tongue should make contact with your  soft palate , while your vocal cords vibrate simultaneously. It’s crucial to be mindful of these processes as they play a significant role in producing a clear and accurate G sound.

In addition to the G sound, it’s essential to differentiate it from the /k/ sound in speech therapy. Both the  k and g sounds  are produced in the same location in the mouth, but with a critical difference: the G sound is voiced, while the /k/ sound is voiceless. Being able to distinguish between these paired sounds can enhance your overall speech clarity and articulation skills.

There are also soft g sounds and hard g sounds. The rule to remember which is which, is as follows:  When g meets a, o, or u, its sound is hard.   When g meets e, i, or y, its sound is soft .

To sum up, incorporating G sound practice in your speech therapy sessions can greatly benefit your pronunciation, vocabulary, and articulation. Remember to pay close attention to the role of your soft palate and vocal cords, and be aware of the differences between the G sound and its voiceless counterpart, the /k/ sound. Keep up the good work, and your efforts will surely lead to improved speech proficiency.

Teaching Methods for G Words

When it comes to speech therapy, teaching the G sound can be quite an adventure. As a parent of a child who is having speech therapy or is waiting to receive it, there are numerous techniques you can employ to help children master this sound. The key to success is practicing often and incorporating a variety of strategies.

First and foremost, your resources are your best friends. Books, games, and picture cards all offer fantastic ways to engage young learners. A favorite activity among speech therapists is using  G Word Lists and Activity Ideas . These lists include initial, medial, and final G word suggestions, along with appropriate games and book recommendations tailored to the G sound.

Since children tend to learn better through play, incorporating games into speech practise sessions at home can be a game-changer. Utilize age-appropriate games that involve the G sound, such as guessing games or picture card matching activities. You may also create your own G-themed games, such as a scavenger hunt where children must find objects that start with the G sound.

While working on the pronunciation of G words, provide your child with ample opportunities to observe their mouth movements. One useful tool for this purpose is a mirror. Encourage them to focus on their tongue placement and the way it feels when they correctly produce the G sound. By allowing children to see and feel the differences in their mouth, they can better understand the necessary actions to produce the G sound.

Flashcards are another excellent resource to use outside of speech therapy sessions. You can create or purchase sets of flashcards featuring G words at various positions within words (initial, medial, and final). These visual aids can help children associate the sound with its spelling and encourage them to practice the G sound in various contexts.

Remember, patience and encouragement are essential when helping children develop their speech skills. By utilizing these various teaching methods for G words in speech therapy, you’ll be well on your way to helping them master the G sound in a friendly and engaging manner. 

Role of Word Lists in Therapy

When it comes to speech therapy, word lists play a crucial role in helping your child or yourself develop and practice correct pronunciation of specific sounds. Among these, G words are quite common in language and working on them can significantly improve your articulation skills. So, let’s delve into the benefits of using word lists and explore some essential G word categories.

One of the significant reasons to use word lists in therapy is their ability to provide a structured approach to practicing particular sounds. In the case of G words, there are different types of lists, such as  initial G words , medial G words, and  final G words . By breaking down the words into groups based on their positions, it becomes easier for you to focus on and master the specific sound within different contexts.

Another advantage of using word lists is their potential to incorporate common vocabularies or  target words  you’ll encounter regularly in daily communication. This makes your child’s practice more functional, ensuring that they’re not only working on improving sound pronunciation but also enhancing their overall language skills.

Articulation Practice with G Words

Friendly and consistent practice is essential in mastering speech sounds like the /g/ sound. As you begin your articulation practice, remember that the  g  sound is a back sound, produced when the back of the tongue touches the soft palate in the back of the mouth. To help you understand the right tongue placement, consider checking out some  articulation worksheets . 

When practicing G words, it’s crucial to have a variety of initial, medial, and final G words to work with. Start with simple words like  gum, goat, and dog , progressing to more complex words and phrases as you become more comfortable with the sound. You can find comprehensive  G word lists for speech therapy  that cater to different speech requirements.

Incorporate various activities into your child’s practice to make it engaging and fun. For example, you could play games, read  books focusing on G words , or even create a word treasure hunt challenge. Aim for a minimum of 100 trials in each practice session, focusing on functional words that you regularly use in your everyday conversations.

As you practice, it’s important to remain patient and maintain a positive, friendly attitude. Encourage yourself by celebrating small achievements along the way. Make sure to practice regularly and consistently to reinforce learning and improve your G word articulation in everyday speech.

Remember, mastering the G sound takes time, persistence, and dedication. Keep practicing, use various G words and activities, ensuring proper tongue placement and speech sound production. With consistent effort, you’ll notice improvements in your child’s G word articulation over time. 

Specific G Words for Therapy

Incorporating a variety of G words into speech therapy sessions can help clients practice and improve their articulation of the G sound. In this section, you’ll find a selection of G words that may be used in various activities and games during therapy sessions. These words are organized based on their position within the word (initial, medial, or final) and also include compound words and multisyllabic examples.

Combating Phonological Processes

Phonological processes are simplifications that young children use while learning to talk. They’re a normal part of language development but can become problematic if they persist beyond a certain age. Two common phonological processes we’ll discuss are  fronting  and  context-sensitive voicing .

Fronting : Fronting occurs when a child replaces a sound that should be produced in the back of the mouth, like “g” (as in “goat”) or “k” (as in “cat”) with a sound produced in the front of the mouth, like “t” or “d.” To address fronting, try these strategies:

  • Encourage your child to pay attention to the placement of their tongue when they say words with “g” or “k.”
  • Use visual cues, such as a mirror, to help your child see where their tongue should be when producing these sounds.
  • Practice with minimal pairs, which are pairs of words that differ by only one sound, such as “goat” and “toat” or “cat” and “tat.”

Context-sensitive voicing : This process involves replacing a voiceless sound with a voiced sound. For example, when “pig” is pronounced as “big” or “car” is pronounced as “gar.” To help your child work on context-sensitive voicing, consider these tips:

  • Teach them the difference between voiced and voiceless sounds, and practice each sound in isolation.
  • Focus on pairs of sounds that have the same place and manner of articulation but differ in voicing, such as /p/ and /b/ or /t/ and /d/.
  • Use auditory and visual feedback methods, like listening to recordings of your child’s speech, to help them hear and see the difference between voiced and voiceless sounds.

Remember to be patient and supportive as your child works on these skills. With consistent practice and encouragement, you’ll see progress in combating phonological processes. Good luck!

Therapy Resources and Materials

As a speech therapist or a parent looking for  G word resources , there are a variety of helpful materials available to support your speech therapy sessions. Here, we will explore some of the resources and tools that can enhance your therapy sessions and make them more engaging and effective.

To start, consider finding online resources with plenty of  articulation activities  to keep your sessions diverse, and keep your clients motivated. Websites like  Speech and Language at Home  or  Speech Therapy Talk  can be great starting points for finding G word lists and speech therapy activities.

As a member of various professional speech therapy websites and organizations, you can access additional resources, tips, and support from your peers. Make sure to take advantage of professional memberships that offer exclusive content and materials catered towards speech therapists.

Flashcards  can be a very useful tool when practicing G words, as they allow the visual representation of the word, as well as the auditory component when spoken out loud. You can find  600+ G Words Lists for Speech Therapy Articulation or create your own set of flashcards, such as boom cards, tailored to your child’s needs.

For more hands-on activities, consider incorporating books into your therapy session that emphasize G words. Reading these books together can provide a fun and engaging way to practice G word pronunciation and improve overall articulation.

Picture cards  are another effective way to work on G words in speech therapy. By providing a visual representation of the word, you can help clients associate sounds with their corresponding images. Try using resources like  K and G Words, Lists, Materials, and Everything You Need!  for picture cards and other helpful tools to supplement your speech therapy activities.

Targeting different word positions through flashcards helps proper production of the sound and improves speech development.

Two Trump Sons Set to Speak at G.O.P. Convention, but No Word on Melania

Donald Trump’s daughters also were not on the list of next week’s speakers released by the Trump campaign and Republican National Committee.

Eric Trump speaking at a lectern at a rally for his father’s campaign in Doral, Fla., this week.

By Michael Gold

  • July 13, 2024, 4:09 p.m. ET

In the days before former President Donald J. Trump formally accepts his party’s nomination at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, at least four of his family members, several of his former primary rivals and dozens of elected officials have been scheduled to deliver speeches, the Trump campaign and Republican National Committee announced on Saturday.

But Mr. Trump’s wife, Melania Trump, was not on the list of “headliners and keynote speakers” provided by the campaign. The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to questions about whether its speaker list was complete. A representative for Mrs. Trump did not immediately respond to a question about whether she planned to attend the convention.

Mrs. Trump spoke at her husband’s previous two nominating conventions. But she has largely kept out of the spotlight during his third presidential campaign, including a Super Tuesday party at Mar-a-Lago, Mr. Trump’s private club and residence in Florida. She has not joined him on the trail, nor did she accompany him at any point during his criminal trial in Manhattan.

The list of convention speakers included Mr. Trump’s two older sons, Eric and Donald Jr.; Eric’s wife, Lara Trump, who is a co-chair of the Republican National Committee; and Donald Jr.’s fiancée, Kimberly Guilfoyle.

Neither of Mr. Trump’s daughters, Tiffany and Ivanka, nor their spouses, Michael Boulos and Jared Kushner, respectively, were on the list. Both women delivered speeches at Mr. Trump’s nominating conventions in 2016 and 2020.

With Republicans eager to display their unity next week — particularly in the face of Democratic infighting over whether President Biden should remain their party’s nominee — several of Mr. Trump’s former primary rivals will be given speaking spots.

They include Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, whom Mr. Trump spent much of his primary attacking and humiliating , and Vivek Ramaswamy, an entrepreneur who ran as a Trump acolyte then quickly endorsed him. Nikki Haley, the former governor of South Carolina who was the last Republican to end her primary campaign, was not on the campaign’s list, but she has urged her delegates to support Mr. Trump.

A flurry of elected Republican officials and candidates are scheduled to speak, including some who had previously rocky relationships with Mr. Trump, such as Gov. Glenn Youngkin of Virginia and Dave McCormick, the Republican Senate candidate in Pennsylvania.

The celebrities who have been invited to speak include Tucker Carlson, the former Fox News host with whom Mr. Trump is close; Amber Rose, the model and entertainment figure who once dated Kanye West; Savannah Chrisley, a reality television personality; and Dana White, the chief executive of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Top contenders to be Mr. Trump’s running mate — Gov. Doug Burgum of North Dakota, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida and Senator J.D. Vance of Ohio and — were on the list, too.

And the speaker list includes at least one animal: Babydog, an English bulldog, who will join her owner, Gov. Jim Justice of West Virginia, onstage.

35 Final G Words

How do i make the g sound, how  to make the “g” sound:.

  • Tell the child to bring the back of their tongue(called the dorsum) up to the back part of the mouth(called the soft palate).  Lifting up the back part of our tongue stops the airflow from coming out of our mouths!
  • Turn  on   your voice ( voice is the rumbling in your vocal folds.  Have your child/client place their hand on their/your neck during the production of “c/k” and “g”, and have them feel the difference between the two.  In the production of “c/k”, there should be no rumble or voicing.  While in the production of “g”, there should be a rumbling or voicing.)
  • Next we lower our tongue and push air out explosively at the same time!

Tricks and Tips for producing the “g” sound:

  • Tell the child we are going to trap the air from escaping using the back of our tongue.  We need to make a hump or a hill using the back of our tongue and bring it to the roof of our mouth.
  • A fun and tasty way to teach the child where to put their tongue for a “g” production is to put some Nutella, peanut butter, sour candy gel, or any other spreadable food they enjoy on the soft middle portion of the back of the mouth(soft palate).  Once the child has felt the spot a few times, have them try to blow out air while lowering the tongue at the same time!
  • If your child is replacing their “g” sounds with “d” sounds. (“dod” for dog”), try using a tongue depressor to hold down the tip of their tongue which should also help the back of their tongue bunch up.
  • Place your hand where the child’s jaw and neck meet, and during “g” productions, lightly push up to help remind them to raise the back of their tongue.
  • To visually show the child how we explosively release air from our mouths to produce the “g” sound, hold a piece of string in front of their mouths, and have them try to move the string with the release of air.  It is important to remind them to remember to use their voicing during this activity!
  • If you have a board game that uses a spinner, have the child see if they can move the spinner using the explosions of air from their mouths.
  • Have the child tilt their head back and look up at the ceiling.  By doing so, our tongues tend to fall into the back of our mouths into the position we need to make the “g” sounds
  • Challenge the child to an imaginary water/juice/milk drinking contest.  See you can making the “g” gulping noise the most times in 10 or 30 seconds!
