Hi Gill, thanks for the useful lesson. Actually, I ran into Are You Being Served? classic tv series on Youtube “Oh What à Tangled Web” episode. It cracks you up. Still, I’m having a hard time understanding Mr Harman (Arthur English) and his lines exchanges with Ms Brahm/ Ms Brahm’s lines. Could you help with their expressions? Fanks

Fun fact: Brazilian Portuguese speakers often make pronunciation mistakes similar to the first (replacing the “th” sounds with either a “t” or a “d”), third (replacing non-initial “l” sounds with a “w”) and sixth (replacing “ing” sounds with either “in” or “in-g”) items of that list.

Thank you very much Mrs. Gill. It was interesting.

Monday, February 11th 2019

such a wonderful lesson I’d mention something that the “STR” it might be of the “T” is pronuncing like “CH” sound for example street would be schreet… and thnx

Thanks Gill! Very interesting review. In Russia we also have a few people with sort of “cockney speech”. Though here it’s considered as rather serious and rare speech defect – replacement of sound “L” by any others, particularly by sound “W”. Defectologists call it paralambdacism.The main reason for this abnormality is the defective anatomical structure of the vocal apparatus, namely a short hyoid frenum.
