What on Earth?

what-on-earth

The tricky bit here for most people is the final sound /θ/. Remember to make sure the front of your tongue is touching your top teeth. This sound is unvoiced.

The phrase expresses surprise or disbelief, and can introduce a longer sentence, for example “What on Earth is that?”, or “What on Earth have you done to your hair?” (That would not be a compliment!)
