My Lips By Barrick Wittmann Speech2

I have Lips


Lips are a visible body part at the mouth of humans and many animals.

Lips are soft, movable, and serve as the opening for food intake and in the articulation of sound and speech. Human lips are a tactile sensory organ, and can be erogenous when used in kissing and other acts of intimacy.


For proper speech development it is important for your child to be able to hear and use the muscles of his or her lips, jaws, tongue and palate properly. During the first three years of life your child will learn to listen and control the various muscles. At around three years of age most children can articulate virtually all the sounds separately, except for /s/ and /r/. During the third and fourth year your child will learn to use the different sounds correctly in words. It is therefore normal for children frequently to miss out sounds or replace them with others when pronouncing their first words.

“I just realized my lips are inside out. They should be turned inwards, because I spend most of my time talking to myself.”
