  • hi everybody Jennifer from Tarle Speech with your pronunciation question today's

  • question is how do I say computer program and I'm going to expand that

  • lesson for you and we're going to work on several things we're going to work on

  • number one how to say those words of course and number two we're going to

  • work on a compound noun and how you go about doing that and then I'm throwing a

  • little bonus and we're going to add some different endings so you have more bang

  • for your buck today okay so the words are computer program let's look at the

  • syllables we have cum really short schwa sound in there cuz that's the

  • unstressed syllable cum pew and you're going to really make that syllable

  • louder longer and higher in pitch and then we're gonna end with a der yes we

  • have that flap T in there don't overthink it too much just think about

  • saying a fast D sound that helps most people so let's put that all together

  • computer computer computer computer all right if you want to say a T you're

  • totally fine you can say computer and everyone's going to understand you but

  • technically we do say that flap T there which sounds a little bit more like a

  • d alright next for the word program we're going to stress syllable

  • one and we are going to make that oh nice and long make that syllable a

  • little bit louder hand a little bit higher in pitch Pro Gram program

  • program so we have computer program so when you say those two words separately

  • they both get stress for word one and stress forward - now when we put those

  • together and make them a compound noun which means we take two words smush them

  • together and it creates a new vocabulary word so we know what a computer is we

  • know what a program is but when you have a computer program it means something

  • individual and different so we put these two words together you're going to

  • stress word one in a compound noun and the second word is going

  • to be less stressed and then you're going to link those words together with

  • no pause in between so I'll say them first as just separate words computer

  • program now if we're linking it together we're making that compound noun computer

  • program computer program computer program now people went on to ask

  • different questions about this how do I say the word programmer and programming

  • okay so all we're going to do here is we are going to add a new syllable for each

  • of those programmer programing that's a little bit unstressed because we're just

  • adding that suffix on to that word but same rules apply you want to stress word

  • one more because we're making these into compound nouns and unstress word two a

  • little bit but within those two words don't forget you still do have a stress

  • syllable that gets super confusing so remember you have syllable stress in

  • each word the PEW and the pro but then when you're stressing word one this

  • whole word is going to be a little bit louder longer and higher than the second

  • word so let's put that all together computer program computer programmer

  • computer programming so computer program computer programmer and computer

  • programming so the computer programmer likes programming the computer so that

  • the computer program can work to the best of its ability give it a try

  • people are going to notice the difference if you found that helpful
