  • hi this is Jennifer from Tarle speech with your pronunciation question today's

  • question is how do I say the word Constitution which are the fundamental

  • principles of a an organization or a country so let's take a look at this

  • word Constitution we're going to break this down into syllables and so think of

  • this more as a word stress lesson this week so word stress here is going to

  • really impact this word and it's a little different than is typical the

  • word stress is going to be more towards the end of the word because we have that

  • tion ending I have a class on that I feel interested in how to pronounce

  • those tion endings so I'll put a link at the bottom of the video for you so let's

  • start with syllable number one con it's gonna be nice and short yes there is

  • that open vowel the short con and then we're gonna quickly move into this

  • really short syllable Consta con sta and you're gonna have that schwa sound

  • there consta then we're gonna move to the stressed syllable - to stress the

  • syllable we're going to make it a little louder the vowel a little longer and the

  • pitch a little bit higher that being said most of my clients really mess up

  • syllable stress because the vowels are too short and typically the same length

  • so make sure that you make this vowel extra long to get that stress correct

  • and then last we're going to end with the tion syllable tion consta two shun

  • Constitution Constitution Constitution Constitution give it a try I know people
