Chris explains the first verse of ’God Save the Queen’.
‘God Save the Queen’ (standard version)
Performed at Harry and Meghan’s wedding: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNZR2RFA2zM
God save our gracious Queen!
Long live our noble Queen!
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us:
God save the Queen!
Chris reads Phonemic Poem 6 on the /ʤ/ sound.
The jury budged the jokey judge.
Jolly Julie made us fudge.
Jest and joke; jump to your ledge.
Juicy dew drenches the hedge.
Gentle legends due to age;
dubious duties induce rage.
Jumping genies jive unhinged.
Duly produce this poem you’ve binged.
Phonemic Poem 5:
Have you heard about this word?
Murderous workers cursed and stirred.
‘Air’ or ‘are’? Er…it’s reverted
to it’s worst, yet not perverted.
Girl, bird, world; hurt is her.
British food is burnt and ugh!
In the UK this month so far we’ve had some cold days and (now) some hot days:
This weekend the temperature is 25 degrees in Cambridge. We’re boiling!
Phonemic Poem 1:
hot, heart; the hurt has started.
yearn, yarn; the fear has parted.
Car can’t start. Glass on grass!
tort, tart; fast can pass.
or far; the past can’t last;
charm friends with this classy blast.
