    Useful tips on pronunciation Jade.As far as I can tell, there are a couple of practical ways to overcome pronunciation problems.

    First,try to be exposed to proper input or rather pronunciation patterns.

    Second, once you have picked up the correct pattern, seize every opportunity you have at hand to put it into real practice.

    Practice makes a big difference.

    Regards

Thank you for correcting the common mispronunciations. Is “mispronunciation” a real word?

Profile photo of Koichi Koichi

Thank you it was great, there is just a mistake for the word “Viscount”, the correct French word is : “Vicomte” [V]+[Count].

;), i like when English people use French word, it’s so sexy. Oups sorry.

haitch and dubya mean ?

Profile photo of tasneemmohsen hamoda tasneemmohsen hamoda

    They’re just the ways to spell the letter ‘h’ and ‘w’ and they must be aitch and double-u

    Profile photo of drewhunter13 drewhunter13

    ‘Haitch’ woul be the wrong way to say the letter H, and ‘dubya’ a wrong way to W.
    I hope it helps you.

Hello …
Thank you Prof. Jade for this valuable lesson. firstly I would like to propose a lesson on describing apartment or a room in a house correctly. Secondly, in case of investigation for example, how to describe someone’s body and personality. Finally, I would thank EngVid Group for their appreciated efforts.

Best regards and thanks in advance.

Thank you Jade for the lesson, but why do you say
height is spelled like width, length and death?
the placement of the T and the H is different.
The lisping sound comes when the H is after the T.
Am I wrong?

Could you help me to state the difference between the modal verbs MUST and SHOULD, and come up with a single context to explain both of them to lower intermediate students?

Profile photo of paujorgel paujorgel

    Hi paujorgel,

    I can’t give you a complete answer but i can tell you what i know.

    MUST, is a stronger modal. It is used while giving orders and is used by people, who can enforce the order i.e. teacher, judge, boss, parents e.t.c.

    SHOULD, is a weaker modal. It is used in advice and is used more by people, who care about you i.e. friends, your own conscience, siblings e.t.c.

    Hope it helped,
    regards

7/7 but the true is that the quiz has nothing to have with the lesson, besides how can we make a quiz about pronunciation? Thank you, Jade very very good lesson, thank EngVid.

Profile photo of Jorge Pedroso Jorge Pedroso

Very interesting lesson, thanks a lot!
I have just realized that the way I’ve always pronounced “iRon”, “iRoning” is actually wrong.
And also for “espresso” , my “eXpresso” had to sound a little weird, since I’m Italian and I should just pronounce it as in my native tongue to be correct (but I changed it, ’cause it sounded “more English” in the other way).
For “lieutenant”, I only knew the US pronunciation and still the “f” in Britain sounds quite odd to my ears.
Well, thanks again! I just hope I remember your advise!

what does mean haitch and dubya?

Profile photo of medamedia medamedia

    It’s how you say the names of the letters “H” and “W”. If you prefer IPA, “H” is /eɪtʃ/ and “W” is /ˈdʌbl̩.juː/.

7/7 Your pronunciation is very important for me!It is your native language if I am not mistaken.

Profile photo of viacheslavkr viacheslavkr

The rule in French is that the stress is on the last syllable. But in English, the rule is that the stress is in the first syllable.
By the way, “marqués”, Spanish word, is the origin of the word. In the Spain of the XIV century, the territorial division were based in “marks”.
Even Catalonia was the earlier ‘Spanish Mark’ ( Marca Hispánica).
Later, we may discuss about Plantagenet, Motemart and many other things, don’t we?
I’d like to be polite, but…

Hi everybody. but why pronounce iron as ion, and is there any difference between the English and American Pronunciation.

Hello everyone , hello Jade .
Nice lesson , I thank you for that but I must rectify something . If you mean balls , as the slang word for testicles , is prostate , sorry to say that but you are wrong . Prostate is a gland beneath the bladder in a male body which is used to urinate and to product male semen . I hope you will appreciate my comment . I learn so many things from you and all engvid teachers that I can’t help correcting this mistake . Maybe a lesson on the names and locations of human body organs would be interresting .
Thank you Jade and carry on

Hi Jade! Thank you so much for this useful lesson!
As to the person who was mean, I passed a huge amounts of moments like that, and I would say people like them are being envy when someone’s speech is smart or interesting ;)
You are great! Just laugh at them, because you are better, but don’t become insensible like them, because they just need care.
Best wishes to you!

Thank you Jade. It’s funny because I’ve always said ‘haitch’, not ‘atich’ because I’m from London innit and our teachers told us off for dropping our hatiches, LOL. According to Longman’s Pronunciation Dictionary, da Irish say ‘haitch’. Good for dem! Also, you can say ‘sjuit’ in British English, although this is dying out. Here’s another interesting thing: you pronounced ‘prescription’ and ‘prerogative’ with a schwa in the prefix (‘pruh’) but transcribed it – correctly – with a short [i]. I agree with you but it just shows you that there is often discrepancy between the dictionary and reality. One final thing: the prostrate is a gland, not balls! Women, lol. :-)
