  • hey everybody Jennifer from Tarle speech with your pronunciation question

  • today's question is how do I pronounce variations of the word progress or to

  • make movement towards a goal so let's go ahead and take a look let me put my

  • notes down so we have the word progress and progress is the noun and we're going

  • to stress the word Pro progress progress the progress we're going to flip that

  • and if you've been watching my videos for a while you know there's a pretty

  • general rule that works most of the time then when we have a noun and we're going

  • to stress syllable one in a two syllable word and we have the exact same word

  • that's pronounced slightly differently when it's a verb we're going to stress

  • syllable number two so again syllable number one in the noun

  • progress and in the verb pro gress so we're going to stress the gress so to

  • stress something you're going to make it a little bit louder the vowel a little

  • bit longer and the pitch a little bit higher than the other syllables and the

  • word so we have progress and progress progress progress keep that in mind that

  • we're going to be stressing that second syllable when we add a lot of these

  • suffixes on to the word so when we add the ing I think where people get

  • confused is this has an extra syllable so we have progress progressing gress

  • Sing progressing but then when we have this ed you do not add an extra

  • syllable you're just gonna add a T to that second part of the word if you're

  • interested in more about this I do have several lessons on adding that ed

  • ending to the words so we have Pro gresst progressed so progress progressing

  • progressed last we have progression and I forgot to

  • underline this and we are going to stress that same syllable because it's a

  • syllable right before that shun progra shun and I think also people got really

  • confused because of the spelling and we are going to end this word in shun so

  • again stress syllable number two and then stress syllable number two and add

  • an extra beat with the ing stress syllable number two and just attach that t

  • sound that second syllable and then still stressed syllable number two and

  • end with tion when we see those two S's there okay let's give it a try so we

  • have progress progress progressing progressed progression progress progress

  • progressing per get progressed progression sorry about that this is

  • like a tongue twister one more time so I can get it correct progress progress

  • progressing progressed progression to make progress

  • you must progress through the lessons give it a try I know people are going to

  • notice the difference if you found this helpful please share us with your
