  • Hello, everybody.

  • This is Elliot from E T.

  • J.

  • English.

  • How are you doing today?

  • We're going to be focusing on words which end with E D.

  • How do we pronounce them?

  • Well, there's three different ways, and I'm gonna show you today way before we start this video, I must mention that I did get this idea for my friend Eagle, who works at I L M T, which is a language school in Brazil.

  • Just Siara in Brazil.

  • I hope I pronounced that correctly.

  • I'm sorry if I pronounced it wrong.

  • Basically, he told me that his students maybe have a little bit off difficulty with pronouncing words which end with E.

  • D.

  • Now I'm here to help you students.

  • I'm here to help you subscribers.

  • I'm here to help everyone with this problem.

  • Now, hopefully I can fix it for you today.

  • So words which end with e.

  • D.

  • There's three different ways of pronouncing them.

  • We can either pronounce them with a sound.

  • We can pronounce them with a sound, or we can pronounce them with an ID sound.

  • For some of you, this might be quite easy.

  • However, for some countries, something which happens quite a lot is they will just pronounce it how it's spelt.

  • So, for example, ah, word like educated, which we pronounce with the it sound at the end, I find that lots of my students taking my pronunciation course will often pronounce it as educated.

  • Now we have to learn with English that most things aren't really pronounced how they are spelled, so it kind of makes it a little bit more confusing.

  • So I'm going to try and teach you the rules, teach you the basics, will practice a few words on a few sentences on Hopefully it should kind of clear things up.

  • So firstly, let's go back to when we said about educated.

  • Now that finishes with it, why does it finish with it?

  • Well, let me tell you so with the verb ends with a T or a d So it or a sound, we will follow it with an ID to pronounce that e d if you know what I mean.

  • So, for example, we could go with a word like Want want Now let's put an e.

  • D.

  • On the end of that word, we wouldn't say wanted, we say wanted it.

  • So just practice that sound First it so to firstly, to pronounce the vowel it it it now in the same breath.

  • I want you to finish with a where we push the tongue to the top of the mouth on We voice the sound.

  • It's not on voiced, wanted wanted.

  • So all in the same sound wanted.

  • I wanted a new car for Christmas.

  • I wanted a new car for Christmas.

  • How about a word which I'm enjoying quite a lot at the moment, which relates to the World Cup?

  • Eliminate now, Firstly, let's take a look at the pronunciation off it on its own.

  • Without e d, we would say eliminate, eliminate.

  • Let's put a e d On the end, we know that it finishes with a sound.

  • So when there's an e.

  • D followed by that, that means we will do and it eliminated, eliminated nated eliminated.

  • Let's try a sentence, which will make me very happy.

  • Germany were eliminated from the World Cup.

  • Germany were eliminated from the World Cup.

  • Sorry, Germans.

  • I just had to do it.

  • And now let's get to when we pronounce it with a T sound.

  • So, for example, the word laugh right laugh.

  • If we want to make that past tense, we would say laughed.

  • Laugh now This one's quite a nice continent cluster to pronounce it the end.

  • Firstly, I have to tell you the sound at the end of laugh is of course, unveil voiced.

  • We're not making a sound from our throat.

  • We're not going love.

  • We're going laugh.

  • So because that's on voiced, the easiest situation on the correct pronunciation situation would be to pronounce that invoiced at the end laughed.

  • So what we need to do, of course, to create that sound, the top teeth go onto the bottom lip and we breathe some air out.

  • Now all we need to do is in the same breath release a sound once again, tongue to the top off the mouth.

  • How about the word?

  • Hope finishes with a API which is on voiced.

  • We're not making a sound so hoped another continent cluster here.

  • But now what I want you to do This is a little practice technique.

  • Take a deep breath in when you release that Go.

  • That's for any of you who have maybe just skipped half the video and got to this point.

  • This is not a meditation video we're practicing pronunciation hoped hoped once again.

  • P on voiced.

  • So that means we have to create that t when it's an e d ending.

  • Now, finally, we've done when a word ends with A T and a d, we know that we will pronounce it within it.

  • We know that when we have an invoiced sound at the end of a word, we add e.

  • D.

  • We pronounce it with a T.

  • What if the sound is voiced at the end of a word?

  • What we pronounce it with?

  • A.

  • Now this one's quite difficult to understand because the sound is actually when it's at the end of a word, it almost sounds very similar to a sound.

  • T is on voiced right on the D is voiced, but when it's at the end of a word, I find that the sound becomes a kind of mixture off it on a So we're still making a voice in our throat.

  • We're still pushing sound out, but it's much more relaxed and you'll see what I mean in a second.

  • So, for example, the word clean it finishes with a sound clean.

  • So if we want to add e.

  • D.

  • On the end cleaned.

  • So it's a very relaxed like, for example, if we're talking about a country, let's say Denmark were really pronouncing that sound.

  • Denmark, However, if we're pronouncing it at the end of a word cleaned, cleaned.

  • So we're very softly pronouncing that we still need some voice so it doesn't sound like a cleaned.

  • Let's try another word plan planned.

  • Planned.

  • I planned to plant some flowers in my garden.

  • Quite difficult.

  • One planned to plant some flowers in my garden.

  • Let's just try one more practice sentence just to practice a few different sounds together.

  • I cleaned my room before I watched the movie, so we've got cleaned, cleaned?

  • Andi watched shift.

  • I cleaned my room before I watched the movie.

  • The most important thing is not to create any sounds.

  • Sometimes people like to create a Schwab sound.

  • I've heard all kinds of different sounds.

  • When people get this wrong, the most important thing is to know exactly.

  • You need to either do an ID, a T or D, and it needs to come straight after that sound at the end of the word.

  • Okay, so that that's it.

  • That's how you do it.

  • It seems quite basic, but you'll be surprised how many people actually get this wrong.

  • So I hope you found this useful.

  • I hope this did help you in some way with making your pronunciation clearer.

  • Now this is just the basics if you want them or advanced stuff.

  • How to really connect your speech with these kind of words?

  • How to sound fluent and natural and confident.

  • When you speak English, just go down into the description box below.

  • On you can join my online video course with WHATS App support on voice messaging at E.

  • T.

  • J.

  • English com.

  • Hopefully, I will meet some of you there anyway.

  • That's it for today.

  • Have a nice day.

  • Cheers, guys, by E.
