Even though I knew my husband would be working late tonight (in fact, he's still not home), I was determined to try out that broiler drawer I had no idea I had until a few months ago. I prepared a flank steak with a mustard-molasses sauce that was really excellent. I probably ate a little too much of it, but it was really good. I'm glad that's the sort of thing that reheats very well, so hopefully my husband will also enjoy it soon. I had a baked sweet potato with it. Yum.
Vocabulary Geek-out #3
What are the following and give examples of each: trigraph, subvocals, diphthong, cognate letters, linguals.
Yeah. Going to look those up now.
Trigraph: A group of three letters representing a single speech sound, such as eau in the word beau.
Subvocal: characterized by movement of the lips or other speech organs without making audible sounds. The b sound is a subvocal.
Diphthong: an indivisible, gliding speech sound identified by its beginning and ending sounds, such as the 0i-sound in toy or boil.
cognate letters: those that are produced by the same organs of speech in a similar position. I'm guessing this would mean like m and n.
Linguals: letters articulated with the tip of the tongue, as in d, n, s, or r.
