    HI EMMA, IT’S REALLY GREAT THAT NORTH AMERICAN TAPPING DIFFERENTLY, BUT IT SEEM LIKE THERE IS LITTLE CONFUSION, DID YOU TAP (F) OR DOESN’T TAPPED?
    SO I REALLY ENJOY THE TEST GOOD LUCK!

Hi, Emma, That’s really interesting. I’ve noticed that English speakers used to don’t pronounce the “r” for example “Peter” sounds like “Pita”. Is that correct?

Faustino de souza alves

Thanks Emma for this lesson!

It’s interessing to know the rules to pronounce “t” in North American English speaking. To me, as a portuguese speaker, it sounds that this “d” is pronounced a little like “r”. Something like “warer”, for example.

Fabio Cicerre

    Yes, I agree.

    pia100te

    I also agree!

    Júlio César L Sousa

      I agree.

      LuisCancino

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    @BryanAdrian

    I agree too.

    leidianellady

    Yes, I’m a spanish speaker and I have realized that the “d” sounds like “r” too.

    Jaimez

    I agree to

    hello im me and you are you

Thank you, Emma, for your educating video lessons. By watching your videos we find out what shortcomings do we have in our English. And it feels perfect when you discover and correct them. Learning English or a language is like learning math. You need to learn everything step by step, otherwise you will limp.

Regards,
Roya.

u had two mistakes.first bristish pronunciation of water..wota..as it contains double vowel…
second regarding tapping t..it depends upon position of the t..not on the stress..you ought to justify f u think u r right..

sokdavid

I love this simple rule

t = D when unstress.I do miscellaneous accent just because that what I’ve heard.
cheers Emma have a good day :)

WAHYU WIJAYA

Thank you very much. This is a great lesson for me to find new way of pronouncing the letter ‘t’ when it’s appeared in the middle of a word.

Mettaysan

Jade, Thanks for your 8 Tips post of 2/23/2015. I’m a singer and actor and visited your sight to improve my British accent. Your comments on the ‘r’ and the difference between ‘ae’ and ‘a’ are very helpful. However, I must take issue with your instruction on “wh”. Just because a specific pronunciation has been adopted by a majority of speakers, we shouldn’t blindly capitulate. I know language is living and ever evolving, but maintaining a standard pronunciation can also be important. “wh” pronounced at “hw” provides clarity in expression. Learning pronunciation also helps one climb the social ladder. I’m an example of that. My Dad was miner with barely an elementary education. Through education and working to erase a parochial accent I was able to rise much higher than my Dad would have imagined.

realy it is intresting lesson and i like the way of teaching

Hey Emma!
Please provide us with lesson of ‘Pronoun and its types’
and don’t forget about its rules.
Yeah I know it might be quite long but we(learners) really nred that . Please make it for us.

Chetanverma

Hey Emma!
Please provide us with lesson of ‘Pronoun and its types’
and don’t forget about its rules.
Yeah I know it might be quite long but we(learners) really nred that . Please make it for us.
I’ve watched your vedios and even subscribed to your channel.
Its kinda request.

Chetanverma

Hello Emma .
Thanks for this lesson . I have two questions : i cannot find a word with a t at the middle of it that is unstressed so that it is pronounced with a d sound in North America. Could you show me a example , you did not in this lesson .
My second question is : you wrote on the white board the short phrase ” when unstress ” . Should we not use the past participle of ” unstress ” rater than the base form .
Thanks for all . Bye

tsamp

    Hi tsamp,

    With photo and photographer you’ll get the both.

    According to my dictionnary I’ll put in UPPER CASE the stress-ed- syllable ;-)

Very nice lesson. Thank you.

Regina009

Sounds interesting!

Sassy

Hi all,

I remember a trainer who taught me that several years before. Nice to brush it up once again with Emma.

When I look up on wikipedia, “flapping” and “tapping” seem to have the same meaning, so don’t they ?
Also both seem to concerns only /t/ (unvoiced) and its obstruent counterpart /d/ (voiced).
But enough theory now… Let’s do as if there were no more obstruents (/f/ vs /v/”, or “/s/ vs /z/” etc.) lol

If I put aside “tapping” and move to silent t”.
As far as I can rely with my “terrible” listening,
I’d say – as soons as a native speaker speeds up, “t” can be “eaten” -.
This applies in BE (as mentioned by Emma), but also in NAE.
Thinking especially to the words in(t)ernet, in(t)erview or wa(t)er…
Is somebody else to agree with it ?

Thanks Emma, your videos rocket our english.

Nico ESL for ever

Mrs. Emma,
How to use the adverbs: fairly, quite, rather, pretty before adjectives?
This room is fairly tidy.
This room is rather untidy.
The new teacher is rather nice. I’m surprised -he didn’t look very friendly.
Thanks.
Explain how to use these adverbs before adjectives.

Another fantastic lesson for English students.
I’m an Indo-Australian, a big fan of engVid and Emma’s lessons. I’m wondering if you have some tips on how to speak more like an Australian. I love Aussie accent and trying hard to reduce my Indian Accent as I want to sound more clear to local people.

Please don’t feel obligated to answer this query but your consideration will be highly appreciated. Thanks.

Alex-1956

Thank you Emma for this useful lesson!
But I have a question:

The word “internet”, which pronunciation is correct:
a) in_a_net (to drop the t. As like the pop-group “The cainsmokers” in their song “Paris”: “…Posting pictures of yourself on the internet…”
Actually I hear it “soft” like a “a”-sound

or

b) in_d_a_net with a “d”-sound?
