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 bring 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.

      Yes, you are right! The "symbols" used in the above sample words by the dictionary to show us the pronunciations are the normal letters of the English Alphabet, except the schwa. Thus, they look almost like the spelling of the word and even confuse us more. For example, the letter "e" can make 10 different SOUNDS. It's impossible to denote all the 10 SOUNDS just by using the letter "e" itself as their sound SYMBOLS. This is why the IPA SYMBOLS are indeed PRECISE in transcribing the PRONUNCIATIONS. The IPA uses different symbols for the different sounds that the letter "e" makes. It's crucial for speakers of English to learn the SPEECH SOUNDS, PHONETIC SYMBOLS and PHONETIC TRANSCRIPTIONS if they want to SOLVE their pronunciation PROBLEM. There is no best solution and effective way other than this if you ask me!      

    • Lol, Gabriel ))) You are overestimating my skills. Though thank you. Nothing comes to mind but 

      kernel

      It might be this:

      Resultado de imagen para kernel

       

      Or that:

      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

    • I have checked ))) good job, Gabriel. I like it )) it's also a way to misunderstand words....and one has to know this brunch...

    Is this how you've been pronouncing the word related to this pronunciation? What is the word?

    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.
