If you’re a parent or a speech therapist in need of word lists for the g sound then you’ve come to the right place! Below are over 600 g words for speech therapy.

Use the links below to help navigate this post:

Correct Production

The g sound is a back sound. It is made by placing the back of the tongue against the soft palate in the back of the mouth. 

If you’re wondering what the soft palate is, it is the little bit of soft roof area in the back of the mouth.

You can help your child practice by placing their tongue in the correct position against the soft palate using a tongue depressor. 

Once you’ve located the soft palate with the tongue depressor then place the back part of your tongue against the soft palate.

You can also have your child or student practice their tongue placement and tongue tip in front of a mirror.

The g sound is also a voiced sound so your voice box or vocal cords should vibrate. 

You can tell that their voice is turned on by touching your voice box on your neck and feeling it vibrate.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the g sound can be a hard g, such as before a consonant “glass” or before a back vowel (a, o, u) as in “goat” or at the end of a word like “log”. 

A soft g is when the “g” sound makes the /j/ sound when the g sound is followed by the vowels (e, i, or y) such as “giant” or a word of Greek origin that begins with the letters gy- such as the word “gymnastics”.

Word Positions: G Words Speech Therapy 

Initial Position of Words

The initial position of the g sound is at the beginning of a word. For example, “goat” or “got”.

Medial Position of Words

When the g sound is in the middle of a word it is in the medial position of a word, such as “hamburger”, “tiger”, and “dragon”.

Final Positions of Words

The final positions of words are when the target sound is at the end of a word. For example, “mug” or “dig”.

G Words Speech Therapy

For your unlimited use, I’ve gone ahead and gathered over 600 g words to work on your student’s or child’s speech.

G Words Speech Therapy Ideas

Here is a list of ideas to work on the g sound!


Favorite Board Games

Do you enjoy using fun and engaging activities in your therapy sessions? 

Board games are a great way to reinforce practice while working on your students’ sounds. 

Some fan-favorite board games to try are Jenga, Connect Four, or Tic Tac Toe to name a few. 

Boom Cards

Boom Cards can be another fun and engaging way to strengthen your child or student’s articulation skills.

Velar Fronting

Velar fronting is when a back sound such as the /g/ sound is made in the front of the mouth, such as the /d/ sound.

For example, your child or student might say the word “date” for the word “gate”.

If your child or student is velar fronting or in other words using the /d/ sound in place of the /g/ sound a great way to work on reducing the velar fronting is to use minimal pairs. 

By using minimal pairs the child then practices the two sounds side by side and practices hearing and producing the different sounds. 

Typical and Atypical Phonological Processes and Age Ranges by Speech Therapy Store – If you want to learn more about phonological processes, such as velar fronting and what ages these processes are typical and what processes are atypical then be sure to check out my chart.

Here is a freebie to work on velar fronting:

Here are a few picture cards to get you started:

  1. Scroll to the bottom of this post and grab your free copy of printable and digital g practice picture cards.

If so, here are a few ideas to do language skills alongside g articulation therapy.

  1. Speech Therapy Articulation Fortune Teller Origami by Speech Therapy Store – Not only can you work on the g sound as well as a ton of other sounds it’s fun! Have your language students work on following directions, requesting materials (scissors, paper, etc.), and practice taking turns.
  1. Free Speech Therapy Activities for Articulation & Language by Fun in Speech – Grab some shaving cream and have some fun! There are pages for the g sound as well as pages for synonyms, categories, and rhyming!
  1. Dough Articulation: K, G, F, S by Jenna Rayburn Kirk from Speech Room News – Have some students work on their G sound while others can play along while working on following directions, making requests (supplies, colors, etc.), as well as working on categories, such as what category are a dog, frog, and pig in?

Auditory Bombardment

Sometimes the first thing a language therapist or speech-language pathologist might do to work on a new sound for a child with an articulation disorder at the elementary school level would be to work on auditory bombardment. 

Auditory bombardment is when you say words with only speech sounds that the child or student is struggling with and provide correct production examples. 

For example, if the child is working on the g sound you might read a list of 20 g words to the child so they can hear the correct production of that sound repeatedly. 

See the list of g words above and start by saying 20 words to your child or student while producing the correct g sound to model and allow them to hear the correct production over and over again.

This is simply a listening activity for the child or student to give them the opportunity to hear the correct production of the sound they are struggling to produce themselves.

In Conclusion: G Words Speech Therapy

We hope you have found this article helpful for working on your child or student’s g sound. 

Be sure to grab your freebie of 20 words to start practicing 5 minutes a day!
