  • Hey everybody Jennifer from Tarle speech with your pronunciation question

  • today's question is how do I pronounce the word object which is a thing and

  • object which is to express disapproval this word is spelled exactly the same

  • and the meanings and the pronunciation are different and so this word is called

  • a heteronym that's not important that you know that but what is important is

  • that you know how to say these words differently so let's take a look I'm

  • going to give you a simple rule today I've actually talked about this before

  • and this rule is is that when a two syllable word is spelled the same but

  • pronounced differently based on whether it's a noun or a verb for the noun

  • because nouns typically come first in a sentence we're going to remember that we

  • are going to stress that first syllable as opposed to the verb which oftentimes

  • in English comes as the second word in a sentence because we say subject verb

  • object we are going to stress syllable number two

  • so again syllable number one we are going to stress for the noun and

  • syllable number two we are going to stress for the verb so what does stress

  • a syllable mean that means that we are going to make that syllable louder the

  • vowel longer and the pitch higher and then we're going to do the opposite and

  • the unstressed syllable we're going to make it softer shorter and lower and

  • pitch so let's try these two words and we're just going to focus on the word

  • stress today so for word number one you're going to say object object and

  • for word number two when it's a verb we're going to say object object so we

  • have object and object so let's give those a try object object object object

  • object object object object the teachers may object to having this object on

  • display the teachers may object to having this object on display give it a

  • try I know people are going to notice the difference if you found this helpful
