  • hey everybody Jennifer from Tarle speech with your pronunciation question

  • today's lesson is a little bit more about word stress which is a part of

  • pronunciation and the question is how do I pronounce the word jewelry like a

  • necklace or a bracelet or a ring and diamond the precious stone there are two

  • ways to pronounce these words one you can say them with two syllables and

  • option number two you can say that with three syllables that fantastic schwa

  • sound that everybody loves so let's go ahead and take a look so our words are

  • jewelry and diamond I actually say these words with two beats jewel ree and die mund

  • but it is totally acceptable to say three beats jewel uh re or die uh mund I

  • don't hear it diamund all that often but I do hear it so you can say either

  • option so let's go ahead and try the two beat version jewel REE jewel REE jewelry

  • and die Mond die Mond diamond so again those are two beats jewel ree die mund

  • great now let's do option number two with three beats and the schwa sound

  • remember for the schwa sound you want to make this sound very short very

  • unstressed not very loud and not high in pitch just a short quick uh sound another

  • great tip is to try to connect the schwa sound to the first syllable you don't

  • want to say jewel uh re connect it to that first syllable jewela jewela

  • jewela jewelry and same thing with diamund it's not die a mund those are

  • all equal we want to connect it and make it a little bit shorter connect it to

  • syllable one daiya daiya diamund diamund so let's give all four of those a try

  • jewelry jewelry diamond diamond and then

  • for your three-syllable option jewelry jewelry diamond

  • diamond so let's give those a try one more time

  • jewelry diamond jewelry diamonds

  • The diamond jewelry was beautiful give it a try I know people are going to notice the
