      hi alex!

      In your lesson, i heard that you said:”… has 2 different pronunciation” but i think that we have to use : 2 various pronunciation. Please tell me the difference between different and various !!!

        Hello Alex. I like your lessons very much. But I haven’t found a full lesson about transcription. I think it would be very useful for many people to see all signs of transcription and to hear it’s pronunciation by teacher.

      Hi! Alex, i suggest question 5 has a wrong answer. According to quize it is “birthday”. I am positive there are all answers are wrond. No way “birthday” sounds like TH sound in word “three”. I looked up in the dictionary.[θ] sound belongs to “birthday”… Also there is a mistake in question 7. With has no a sound TH like in the word “three”.

Thank you very much!
But any dictionary says that “th” in “with” sounds like “th” in “the”.
Can you comment it, please!
Thank you in advance!!!

wild boar

    Really? I’ll have to double check my dictionaries. I can maybe see if the next word starts with a vowel sound.

    Example: “I need help with a problem.” vs. “I’m not good with people.”

    Hmm, I don’t think I’ve ever noticed that before, but now that you mention it, I do pronounce it both ways sometimes!

I have to work a lot in my pronunciation. This lesson has helped me a lot. Thank you.

Hector

It was fun exercising my tongue.
Thanks

If someone was listening me practising it, then they would never guess what words I try to say. Specialy if th sound is in the middle of the word. This sound is extremly hard for me.

    You also was born in Poland and You can pronounce it properly. Your case make me hopeful, that i will succeed with it too (i’m little older than 7 but maybe still not to old :) ).

Is there any difference between the “d” and the “th” in this, that, the, etc.

Martin

    Are you asking if we pronounce “the” like “da”? It’s a common mistake, and the proper pronunciation for all the words you listed is the hard, vibrated/voiced “th” sound. The same one you hear in “brother,” “mother,” etc.

Thanks a lot for the lesson. I have only checked Emma’s and your Vidlessons yet: very clear both of you. I’d like, if it is possible, a lesson about the word off. The meaning is not complicate to understand but, on the contrary, the use is confusing.

Ignacio

Thanks a lot for the lesson, Alex.I want to ask you about quiz. I got 100%. It’s good! But I always considered that “With” pronounce as (Z) sound.And I was confused the following:
7. Which word uses the same TH sound as “three”?
With
Mother
Brother
Lover

Elena

    Alex, I also didn’t understand this part of quiz:
    7. Which word uses the same TH sound as “three”?
    With
    Mother
    Brother
    Lover

    Plese, comment why “with” is a correct answer?

Thanks for the lesson. I suggest to make a video about the pronunciation of the “i”. For expample, the diference between fill, dice. I Know that the pronunciation is diferent, but I don’t know why. I think is called short and long “i”.

Profile photo of Dado Dado

first of all I wanna say ..thank you so much for the lesson
then I’m a little confused between these two words
breath……breathe
why does the first pronounce like ” 8″
and the second pronounce like “9”
are they just one word and have the same meaning ?
………………..
and how I pronouce the word “suggestion”
many thanks in advance
is …’sug’ ‘Jestion’?

Profile photo of nino31 nino31

    No they aren’t.
    breath — this is a noun
    breathe — this is a verb

    So, you can say: “You have to breathe.”, “Take a deep breath.”

    As to “suggestion” — /səɡˈdʒɛstʃən/ — many non native speakers do not pronounce both “g”.

      And I also wanna thank dear teacher alex many thanks .may allah bless you .

      Profile photo of nino31 nino31

    “Breathe” is a verb. “You need to breathe to live.”

    “Breath” is a noun. “I took a breath before starting my presentation.”

    Suggestion is pronounced “suh-jestion.” The double g is pronounced as a single sound.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

please this word too
“Bother”
th as the
or as three
thank you very very Much dear teacher
may allah bles you

Profile photo of nino31 nino31

    “Bother” is TH as in “the.” Same with brother, mother, and father.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

what the diferent (in meaning) between= breath and breathe??????????

    “Breath” is a noun, “breathe” is a verb.

Great!

binngokute

Hi Alex,
I have 2 questions about the pronunciation of TH. When I’m watching series or listening to musics,often I hear words like “thin”,”think” and “thank you” being pronouced with a sound of “t” and words like “this”, “that”, and “although” I hear a sound of “d”.
Why this happen? Is wrong or just a matter of accent?
Bye for now!

Not only these sounds are funny, but also very difficult for Brazilian students since we don’t have them in our language.

Profile photo of nane09 nane09

It needed lots and lots of exercises, why is it so hard! Thanks Alex teatcher!

Profile photo of Edval Edval

Please describe the difference between ( three and tree sound).

Cuong ta

That is the phonetic symbol, not phonemic and that is the Phonetic Alphabet, not Phonemic! On other note, you are a great teacher! Could you also talk about the vowel in words like ‘cat’ and ‘pan’? It is difficult for foreigners, I think!

adonis2025

    I found this:

    “phonetic” is a branch of linguistics that comprises the study of the sounds of human life

    “phonemic” comprises the study of the sound system of a given language and is concerned with grammatical characterization of this system of the sound.

    So, “phonemic” has to do with function, and phonetic with the form.”

    So, it could be synonyms but slightly different. This sentence is form the eng wiki:

    IPA is “used for phonetic and phonemic transcription of any language”

    Profile photo of morfik morfik

    As mentioned, many pronunciation books use the terms interchangeably. I learned it as “phonemic” since a phoneme is the smallest unit of sound that we use to generate meaning.

brunolevy6

    Me again! I have just created my account! First of all, I would like to thank all the engVid teachers who have spared no efforts to make this website function they way it does. Besides that, lots of people have benefited from your free lessons. I will be absorbing as much info as I can. Changing the suject – I remember when I started learning these two sounds 7 years ago. It was very funny and I struggled to pronounce them at first, but then they began to become more natural and simpler as I practiced them in front of the mirror and with my teacher.

      Mirror practice can be very useful! Don’t be afraid to look foolish in the beginning.

I want to know: how to read the word “sixth”?
both “s” and “θ” will be read?

Profile photo of alonewalkman123 alonewalkman123

Hi Alex !
As far as I know the TH sounds as the one in three when it comes before a consonant or at the end of a word. But when it comes before a vowel I have no rule for that. Do you have a rule? THAN YOU IN ADVANCE.

Atef

    Sadly, there is no absolutely consistent rule. Look at these examples:

    Thee (hard TH)
    Theme (soft TH)

    Both are followed by the same vowel sound but have different pronunciations.

    Teeth (soft TH)
    Teethe (hard TH)

    Both have the same vowel sound before, but different TH pronunciations after.

    Now that I think about it, I can’t think of a single word that has a soft TH sound when the word ends in “er.”

    Brother
    Mother
    Bother
    Rather
    Father
    Gather
    Soother

    So that’s one rule you can likely apply.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      Hi Alex ! this is Atef again ,
      The single word that you are thinking of is PANTHER the TH sounds soft as in three.
      THANK YOU ANY WAY THAT HOW IT IS ENGLISH PRONUNCIATIONS.

      Atef

        Yeah, I realized that as soon as I posted the comment. :p Thanks!

These pronunciations are the greatest things to do for me I’ll succueed the day when “les poules auront des dents !”( When pigs can fly) ! Kind regards

Profile photo of vilainpetitcrapaud vilainpetitcrapaud

This is great but you might want to consider the movement of your tongue, which you do perfectly.

When you make either \th\ sounds, your tongue goes out between your teeth and you pull it in.

This would help your foreign students.

Ron Stipek

Very useful lesson! Thank You very much, Alex!

katerynakoziar

these pronuciations are very dificult to me speak. I’m brazilian. My goal is speak and listen english fluently.

Ubiracy Mafra

    yes I have the same problem. i’ll succeed the day where “pigs fly” in French “when hen will have teeth” ! In fact I have a slghtly lisp anyhow my wife is native engish speaker and when I pronounce these words. She laughs and say that is very sweet so don’t worry about that. Englsh speakers like this way to speak

excuse me Mr Alex but I modestly think that the word ‘with” is pronounced as “the” sound. and that’s why I got 90 out of 100.

Ali

    No worries. I’ve heard it pronounced both ways, but I personally use the soft TH pronunciation. If you use the hard TH pronunciation, that’s alright too.

thank alex for your concern.however we need a lesson on both all consernant and vowel sound

when i took the quiz
this Q
Which word uses the same TH sound as “three”?
With
Mother
Brother
Lover

and they said that the answer is with who come?

Mohammed

    As mentioned above, “with” is pronounced both ways by native speakers. Most Canadians I know use the soft TH pronunciation for it, so perhaps it’s typical pronunciation in my area!

I have a question for you. I remember I was in Walmart the other month and I asked a staff to help me to find a non alcoholic beer and I used “without alcohol” with “TH” sound as “three” BUT he couldn’t understand me. However I gave it a shot and used “T” sound rather than “TH” sound he said OK now I know you are looking for beer “witout!!!! alcohol”. So I’m confused really :(

Hi Alex! I have a problem pronouncing letter “L” in some words, depending on it position in a word. Sometimes it sounds like “V”. It was found a long ago by my teacher who recorded my speech, however, I still have this problem. It often cause misunderstanding during a conversation. Alex, what do you think I can do? are you planning to have a lesson for “L” pronunciation? Thank you! Miron (mteshler@gmail.com)

It’s really a challenge for me to say words with th sounds (voiced and unvoiced) because we don’t have such sounds in our language. Thanks Alex.

Now, I gotcha, I can easily differentiate among both sounds. Thanks to tons, Alex! – I had gotten 80, just two mistaken answers. Keep it up posting videos with that clear understandable accent.

Alex, thank you very much for your interesting and useful lessons! Good job! But I have a question regardlee the quiz.

Which word uses the same TH sound as “three”?
With
Mother
Brother
Lover

The answer which is marked by system as correct is “with”. But I’ve checked in the dictionary and found that it was \ð\ sound. In “three” we have /θriː/.

    That’s interesting! It seems like there are different pronunciations – in some places the “th” in “with” is /ð/ and in others /θ/. In North America (where Alex is), it is nearly always pronounced the same way as “three”.

in portugueses we don´t have this sound “TH”, is very hard for our. excellent class.
