You have to know your pronunciation skills


1. Sound loss (incomplete blasting)


Because losing blast is a kind of phenomenon of aphonia, frictional sound can also be lost, so it is called as aphonia. Note: the bursting sound is not completely lost, but still forms an obstruction, blocking the air flow inside, but does not burst, pause for a moment, directly emitted adjacent consonants. Lose blasting 6 blasting sounds have 3 pairs /p/, /b/, /t/, /d/, /k/, /g/. Rules:


Incomplete explosions that occur inside words such as: bla (ck) board, foo (t) ball, ke (p) t, etc. The consonant letters in brackets correspond to the consonant phonemes /k/, /t/, /p/.


Incomplete blasting occurs between words. Incomplete blasting occurs very often between two adjacent words.


When any two bursting tones in a bursting tone are adjacent to each other, the previous one loses its burst. Such as a bi(g) car, etc.


For example:


The girl in there(d) coat was on a bla(ck) bike jus(t) now.


The bi(g) bus fromthe fa(c) Tory is full of people.


When the frictional /f/, /s/, /W/, /T/ is followed by any one of the frictional /f/, /s/, /W/, /T/, the previous one loses its blasting.


For example:


Goo (d) morning, Mr. Bell.


Uncle Li's (c) Tory is qui(te) near to the cinema.


When the bursting tone is followed by /t/, /d/, /tr/, / Dr /, the preceding bursting tone loses its bursting. A grea(t) change When the blasting sound is followed by /m/, /n/, /l/, the front blasting sound loses blasting. For example, a bi(t) more expensive.


Aphonia condition: two adjacent words must be closely related in meaning and belong to the same meaning group. The syllables are generally unstressed, and are passed by as they are, without being too heavy or pronounced. (hyphen: ~)


Second, the accent


1. Stress pronunciation skills


If each English word has more than one syllable, or if there are more than one syllable in a sentence, at least one syllable is stressed. When the stress is placed on a word or syllable, the vowel of the word or syllable should be pronounced heavily and longer. When the stress is not placed on a syllable, the vowel is usually pronounced lighter and shorter, and it will change to or. For example, purpose, the normal phonetic symbol is, while the actual pronunciation is. The ba and the na in banana are short and light, and the a in the middle is heavy and long. I didn't do it on purpose.


2. The position of stress


In general, nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, these (those), why (what, which, wh*... ) need to be stressed; Functional words in sentences (articles a, the, etc., refers to pronouns I, he, she, his, her, your, my, etc., positional prepositions in, on, behind, conjunctions and, but, etc., auxiliary verbs do, dose, etc.) However, in a sentence, if a particular item is emphasized, it is not subject to the above rules.


3. Influence of stress on word meaning


A word in a sentence is usually pronounced long and heavy when stressed. The different stress position inside the word will affect the character of the word. It is usually a noun or an adjective where the stress is placed on the first syllable, or a verb where the stress is placed on the last syllable, e.g. Per 'mit v is allowed; Perfect, perfect, perfect, perfect, perfect, perfect, perfect, perfect, perfect, perfect, perfect Perfect.


4. Influence of clear (turbid) consonants on vowel pronunciation


Vowels are usually pronounced long before voiced consonants and short before voiceless consonants, for example, the difference between eyes & ice, seed & sit and so on. This is also the skill of distinguishing words in listening


The pronunciation of can & can't is different


I can help you with the stress on help; The stress on "can't help you" is still pronounced "can", but there is a slight pause after "t". I can help you.i can help you.i can help you.


Thirteen & thirty


Thirteen stress on thir 'teen, thirty on the first syllable.


5, auxiliary verb stress


In order to emphasize a certain verb, it is common to stress the auxiliary verb in front of it. If there is no auxiliary verb in front of it, it is necessary to add the auxiliary verb "do" and then stress it. Eg. He spoke the way he spoke. He did speak.


6. Sound assimilation


Sound assimilation is also a phenomenon of liaison, a very smooth transition between two words that causes a sound to change under the influence of a neighboring sound. Mainly in the following three ways:


Consonant [d] and [j] adjacent, assimilated into э [d] : order to you... ?


When consonant [t] is adjacent to [j], it is assimilated to the integral of [t] : Can't you:... ?


When consonant [s] is adjacent to [j], it is assimilated to [integral] : Miss you


Practice method: find a standard tape that foreigners read and play it continuously on a tape recorder. Then you look at the script and read it at his pace. At this time, fully mobilize your ears, to adapt to the foreigner's voice and tone of voice, but also like an echo tube to reflect out. Over time, when you get used to the rhythm of foreigners, as long as you have 5000 basic words, you can deal with the general conversation.
