Hi All,
          Recently I've developed language invention (mostly sketches of
langs while I try to find something that feels right) as a hobby, but I
have one major problem. Its this: quite simply, my ability to pronounce
sounds alien to my own language is really really awful. Since I want to
actually pronounce any language I make up this leaves me with a real
problem... either make languages which use the same sounds as english or
accidentally swallow my tongue and die trying to pronounce other sounds.
Does anyone have any advice regarding how to learn to pronounce sounds
that don't feature in your own native tongue?
