Voiced Sounds

Voiced sounds are speech sounds produced with vibration of the vocal cords. Examples include /b/, /d/, /g/, /v/, and /z/. Voiced sounds contrast with voiceless sounds, which are produced without vocal cord vibration. Teaching voiced sounds involves helping learners recognize and produce these sounds accurately, often through listening exercises, minimal pair drills, and pronunciation practice. Mastery of voiced sounds is essential for clear and accurate speech production in the target language.
