• The Easter Bunny

    Colored eggs, baskets, and the Easter bunny are all part of the Easter tradition in the U.S. In the word “bunny”, the last letter “y” in the spelling represents the “ee” sound. The final letter “y” is commonly the “ee” sound. Some nonnative speakers, such as Russian speakers, pronounce the final “ee” sound more like a lax “i”. Make sure your tongue is high against the roof of your mouth, smile, and make the sound long like the name of the letter “e”.
