PRONUNCIATION of the DAY

I'll be posting the PRONUNCIATION (in the form of PHONETIC SPELLING) of a WORD everyday. My objective of doing this activity is to raise awarness among our Club members the importance of learning SPEECH SOUNDS and their SYMBOLS if they really want to solve their pronunciation problems.  

Now, this is what I want you to do! Look at the PRONUNCIATION for the day and type out the related WRITTEN WORD. I would appreciate it if you could also add your VOICE RECORDING of the pronunciation. It will help those who don't know how to read the PHONETIC TRANSCRIPTIONS. Make use of this opportuntiy to improve your pronunciation or help others with their pronunciation. Here's your very first PRONUNCIATION.

You can use the "voice recorder" below to record your pronunciation and play back the recording to listen to your pronunciation. This voice recorder does not save your recordings, thus you can record your voice as many times as you want until you perfect the pronunciation of a word.

    • Angy, you have nothing but praise, thus my words are no exaggeration. You don't know that you might be inspiring other fellow members of the Club to take part in this DAILY CHALLENGE. It's a matter of time to see them here!

      Ok, you're right. Both the words "kernel" and "colonel" share the same pronunciation. Excellent job, Angy! Please check my reply to SNR about HOMOPHONES

    3249627704?profile=RESIZE_930xThis PRONUNCIATION is not difficult to say, is it? But, do you know the correct spelling of the WRITTEN WORD? If you do, can you type it out? You can also add your voice recording of the pronunciation.

    • hey Gab,

      the answer might be Sovereign.

      :)

    • Excatly! Good job, SNR. I want to show you why it's essential to learn the PHONETIC SPELLING and how EASY it is to understand and read it ! Look at the word "sovereign" in the image.3254949350?profile=RESIZE_930x

      There are three LETTERS that are SILENT in the word. If we look at the PHONETIC SPELLING (the last one), it doesn't show the sound of the LETTERS that are SILENT. It tells us which syllable is STRESSED. It is the first syllable "sov" /sɒv/. (The phonetic spelling could also tell us the exact sound that a letter(s) makes in a word!) We get all the information from the phonetic spelling for us to pronounce the word correctly. This is why it's IMPORTANT TO LEARN HOW TO READ THE PHONETIC SPELLING to solve your pronunciation problem once and for all. 

    • Thank you so much, Gabriel, for explaining the silent letters and how it is pronounced. It's really helpful. :) Stay Blessed.
