Thank you for your good and kindly explanations. Probably I understood pronunciations of the s ending in the several words.


Thanks a lot, Emma. Actually, this lesson is to difficult to me, but after i had watched your lesson, i already understood the lessons. Thanks again, Emma ^_^

Speaking of pronunciation, Emma, im confused what the pronunciation /d / in the special cases like the word ‘ used’, ‘ loved’ and so on. I knew the pronunciation / d/, but im no sure the pronunciation /use-d/ same as /used/. Is it correct?

Second question is IS it we should use pronunciation /t/ in all of the words which have ‘t’ like the words ‘yogurt’,’commitment’ and etc?.Can your explain this.

I need your help. Your apply is appreciated. Thanks in advanced.

With regards,


    Hi Fong,

    Thanks for your comments. In terms of ‘ed’ pronunciation, you are correct. There are three different ways to pronounce ‘ed’ endings. Please watch our video on ‘ed’ endings to learn the differences in pronunciation (eg, ‘used’ has a /t/ ending sound.

    In terms of your question with t, it depends on the word. For the most part, we do pronounce t. However, in some words, the letter t can be pronounced like a /d/ depending on the speaker’s accent (eg, party).

Dear Emma,

What the difference between NO and NOT? Im so confused. Sometimes, i don’t know use them when typing messages. I really need your help.

I would hear back from your soon. By the way, please correct this if i made grammar mistakes.Thanks again Emma! I very like you so much, especially your voice!^_^



Excuse me, Ma’am.
Could you please give me some examples of the certain “th” you meant?

Profile photo of Rifai Rifai

    Hi Rifai,

    In English, there are two ways to pronounce ‘th’. They are very similar. In both cases, your tongue is between your teeth. The only difference is that in the first ‘th’ sound (also known as a voiced ‘th’ sound), the sound comes from your voice. If you place your fingers on your throat while you make this ‘th’ sound, you will notice a vibration. Some examples of the voiced ‘th’ sound include ‘mother’, ‘the’, ‘these’, and ‘breathe’. When a word ends in a voiced ‘th’ sound and we want to add an s, we pronounce the‘s’ as a /z/.

    In the second ‘th’ sound (also known as the voiceless ‘th’), the sound comes from your mouth. If you put your fingers on your throat, you will feel no vibration when you pronounce the voiceless ‘th’ sound. Some words with the voiceless ‘th’ sound include ‘bath’, ‘earth’, ‘moth’,‘breath’ and ‘thumb’. When a word ends in a voiceless ‘th’ sound and we want to add an s, we pronounce the ‘s’ as a /s/.

    Profile photo of Emma Emma

      Thanks Emma that was a great lesson. I only want to add one thing, if we have word ends with X we pronounce it as /iz/for example boxes, fox, indexes, faxes.

Hi Emma,
Your lesson was very interesting.
I have problems in speaking words like ‘costs’
For example:This bag ‘costs’ twenty five dollars.
So,could you tell me how to pronunciate such words(mostly words ending with ‘sts’).
Thank you. :)

Profile photo of jish jish

    Hi Jiish,

    ESL students often have difficulty pronouncing consonant clusters like ‘sts’ (eg, costs) or ‘sks’ (eg, desks). Many native speakers drop the t or k in their pronunciation of these clusters.

    Check out the website below for examples of this.

    Alternatively, you can also break up`sts` into easier components. For example, pronounce s first and then ts. The t has a weak pronunciation, so there shouldn`t be a burst of air coming from your mouth when you pronounce it.

    I hope that helps.

thanks i really liked this video 13/15 =)


Hi thanks Emma,
Your advice really helped me.Yes,you are right,I’m from India and English is my second language infact.In my knowledge Indians speak pretty good English.I believe that mine is also not so bad.But I do make mistakes sometimes when I speak.However most of my friends don’t have the problem that I’m having(which I’ve mentioned in the question)
I don’t know whether I can improve speaking those words or not.
Anyway,thanks again :)

Profile photo of jish jish

Hi Emma,
I had one more thing to ask.I opened the link that you sent.There,they are telling to drope/remove ‘t’ in costs or ‘k’ in asks while using these words.And they suggest that these can be read as
‘cos:s’ and ‘as:s’
But I really don’t know how to pronounce the above written terms.Could you please explain? :)

Dear Emma,
What about vowels? How do we pronounce s endings in the end of the words that end in vowels? For instance, army-armies?


    Hi Merlin,

    Thank you for your question. For words that end in vowel sounds, we pronounce the s like a /z/.

Hi Emma,
Is any rules to pronounce the letter S when it comes in the middle of the word:C as in lesson and class;and Z as in please,pleasant,and plasma.MANY THANKS.


    There are some spelling clues that can help you decide how to pronounce an s in the middle of a word.

    For words with ce (license) and ci (medicine) spellings, the c is pronounced like an /s/.

    For ss (kisses) and s (mast) spellings, we often pronounce the s like a /s/. However, when ss or s spellings occur between vowel sounds (eg, dessert, pleasant) we pronounce them like a /z/.

    For sc spellings in the middle of words (eg, muscle), they are usually pronounced like a /s/.

    Please be aware that there are some exceptions to these rules.

Actually, I’m here to thank you for all you’ve been doing to both me and my English as well. You’ve been very helpful to me and I admire you so much about the way you teach your lessons and even though I am not a native speaker they sound quite clear for me. I wish I could speak just like you someday. I’ve been doing my best to improve my English skills day by day in order to become as fluent as a native speaker.

Thanks Emma you were very good. I can’t stop reading and listening your lessons. I’ve been studying for many hours today. I think it’s enough for today; I might continue tomorrow if I have spare time. Pronunciation is the biggest problem I have because I started learning English with reading and not listening. Well listening first and then reading is the most right way for somebody who wants to learn correctly.

Dear Emma,

Thank you for answering me

Just to clarify, the pronunciation of ‘pronunciation’ is not pronounciation!!!


Hi Emma
You said a sentence before you started:
“Let’s get star it” or “let’s get it started” something like this,
I want you write the corect sentence.


Well done! Miss Emma…by the way…in a nutshell IPA sounds with strong vocal cord vibration are called VOICED and sounds with weak or w/o vocal cord vibration are called VOICELESS.:))


It’s an excellent lesson.

Thank you very much Emma.


Thank you Ema. You are a good teacher.

Dear Engvid team, especially James, Rebecca and Emma,

I have just received my IELTS score. Its 8.5. I scored 9, 9, 7.5, and 8 in reading, listening, writing, and speaking respectively.

I feel an obligation to write this note. The Engvid site, more than you realise, is making a huge difference in learning English for many like me. This is probably the most important website out there which provides such an useful contents and provides them for FREE. The teachers are the most interactive, funny, lovely, and sweet teachers so far I know.

I thoroughly studied several lessons from your site and I was able to get a score that I aimed for. I just want to say thank you for all the good work. Please keep it up.

There are some spelling clues that can help you decide how to pronounce an s in the middle of a word.
For words with ce (license) and ci (medicine) spellings, the c is pronounced like an /s/.
For ss (kisses) and s (mast) spellings, we often pronounce the s like a /s/. However, when ss or s spellings occur between vowel sounds (eg, dessert, pleasant) we pronounce them like a /z/.
For sc spellings in the middle of words (eg, muscle), they are usually pronounced like a /s/.
Please be aware that there are some exceptions to these rules.
please Emma give us examples for these exception >>>

Hi Emma,
I am not trying to be condescending but I think “pronunciation” is pronounced pruh-nuhn-see-ey-shuhn not pruh-nouns-see-ey-shuhn. PLease advise.

Thanks Emma! Nice job! I would like to know if the word “LOVE” is in “Z” group because it sounds at the end as a V or is it because after letter “E” at the end we should pronounce the S like a Z? Hope you understand my english ha ha ha!

Hi Emma!
Thank you very much for the lesson!
It’s very useful for me to know that there are rules on how to pronounce the s endings.
I am trying to find out the pronunciation of some words that doesn’t seem to fit in these rules: “camera”, and “key” – both seem to end in vowel sounds, not consonant sounds as in the given rules. Would you please explain how to deal with them?
