Be careful to make phase and face sound different! The vowel in phase is longer than that in face. In addition, the -s- in phase is voiced (i.e., has a buzzing sound, like z). The -c- in face is a sharp s-sound.
You wouldn’t want anybody to think you were going to have a new face if all you were doing was starting a new phase of a project, would you?
