I was thinking about the TH sound pronounced by native speakers (Americans). Would be fair to say that Americans keep their tongues ready for pronouncing the TH sound all the time. Was it like a trigger ready to go?.... Since the word 'THE' is spoken several times during any conversation, their tongue have to have the 'mechanical' trigger ready to go all the time.
We Brazilians are not fast enough to pronounce all the TH sounds all the time. It easier for us to say a word which starts with TH instead of a word that finishes with TH, or TH plural (paths, months) and link them with the next word.
Does it make sense??
