Listening Comprehension: 'aa' as in 'bat'
Today we're going to work on listening comprehension for the 'aa' as in 'bat' vowel sound [æ]. You will hear one word spoken out of a word pair. And you need to decide if you are or are not hearing the 'aa' as in 'bat' sound. In the first set, the aa sound will be contrasted with the 'eh' as in 'bed' sound [ε]. You'll hear each word twice; guess what you are hearing: bat, bed, ban, man, head, sand, gas, pen, said. The next set of word pairs have the 'aa' as in 'bat' and the 'ah' as in 'father' vowel sounds [α]: pond, hat, banned, rock, gnat, pat, cop.
