  • hello Jennifer from Tarle speech with your pronunciation question today's

  • question is how do I pronounce the word casual and casually basic and basically

  • let's just jump right into this because I think you're going to need a visual so

  • first let's start with the word casual let's just look at the syllables or I

  • think this kind of gets a little bit too confusing I've actually shot this video

  • about five times already and none of them have worked so let's go with just

  • the syllables so for casual Ka zew ul

  • casual so Ka zew ul casual casual casual now casually can be pronounced

  • one of two ways it can either have three syllables Ka zew lee casually or four

  • syllables Ka zew uh lee casually so let's say those words altogether we have

  • casual with three beats casual casual casual and then we're gonna have three

  • beats for option number one casually casually casually or we have four

  • syllables when I add that schwa casually casually casually either option is okay

  • you just have to pick one and stick with it now let's go to basic this is easy

  • when you think of the syllables it's like we're saying two words bay like a

  • body of water and sick like I don't feel very well

  • basic easy breezy to say that herein lies the problem though I think when you

  • add that ly you can have one of two pronunciations basically with three

  • beats basically basically basically or you can have four syllables bay sick

  • uh lee basically basically basically so we can have basic basically basically now I

  • hear most people say basically however it is okay if you want to add that extra

  • syllable it's actually hard for me to pronounce it that way because I don't

  • add that fourth syllable but just know that some people do that and that is

  • okay so because I pronounce these words with three syllables when you add the ly

  • that's how I'm going to pronounce them for you in the examples so we have

  • casual casual casual casually casually casually basic basic basic basically

  • basically basically casual casually basic basically give it a try I know
