- G, Gh -

    Sound:  G as in goat gad (juniper).   The G always makes a hard G sound never like the G in Giraffe.   Gh as in hooghan (home, house, hogan).   Position the back of the tongue against the back roof of the mouth closer to the throat and blow air out.   This sound is similar to getting rid of a lugie from the back of the throat.
