sound d video: How to pronounce the /t/ sound?

t is a voiceless consonant sound that makes no vibration through the vocal cords when pronounced. The t letter has two types of pronunciations. One of them is the magic t which comes always between two vowel sounds like the words ‘butter, matter and water’. However, we are not interested in the magic t  here as it’s not the main one in phase two. The main interest here is in t sound as in talk or hot.
