500 Common Words: I as in Sit

Success! You're on the list.

This sound is very close to the simple u-in-up. The tongue moves forward a little bit, and the mouth has the slightest tension. It is helpful to think of a low pitch. This makes the Short I distinct from the Long E (in many languages, and I spelling indicates a Long E sound). The Short I is also truly short, quick sound.
