Thank you

I usually mix up /ʊ/ and /u:/, pronouncing both of them as /u:/ (for example, I’d pronounce the “oo” in “cook” as the “ue” in “blue”). Also, I have a bit of trouble to differentiate among /ʊ/, /ʌ/ and /ɘ/ (they all sound like an “uh” to me). For example, I’d pronounce the letters “u” in “survive” (/sərˈvaɪv/), “put” (/pʊt/) and “cut” (/kʌt/) in the same way (as an “uh”).

Saturday, January 27th 2018

    Correction: I find /ʊ/, /ʌ/ and /ə/ hard to differentiate (not /ʊ/, /ʌ/ and /ɘ/)

    Saturday, January 27th 2018

it is an interesting leeson thank you
