  • question is how do I pronounce the word interest and the variations of that word

  • interest means curiosity it can also be money that you make for

  • an investment so let's go ahead and take a look at our words alright so let's

  • just talk about the word interest technically it's two beats I think

  • that's the easiest way to say it so we're going to think about saying in

  • trust interest I do hear in trust different vowel variations I think the

  • key here is that you just want to make that vowel short okay cuz I've been

  • getting a lot of questions about variations there are so many variations

  • key as you want to be understood so make that vowel short so for in key here

  • short vowel then touch the tip of the tongue to the back of the top front

  • teeth and air moves out of your nose and next for trist you're going to pull

  • your tongue down and as you pull your tongue down from the T from the back of

  • the top front teeth you're going to move to that R tr tr

  • some people do say that this sounds like a ch it does somewhat sound like a CH

  • but it is not a CH it is a T r in tristand then we're gonna add that is

  • short I and then the S and then we're going to touch the tip of the tongue to the

  • back of the top front teeth or that teeth interest interest interest now for

  • the variations this is where people kind of get confused if you want to say

  • interesting you can say three beats in tris ting or you can say four

  • interesting I hear both pick whichever one is easier for you and stick with

  • that one and then when we add the e D if you want to get fancy um you can make

  • this last T a D and just add it did interest did interested and then

  • quick little tip if you were adding this to another word to make a compound noun

  • remember first word is stressed higher louder and longer vowel second word is

  • unstressed shorter and lower than those words are linked together with no pause
