  • hi again this is Jennifer from Tarle speech with your pronunciation question

  • today's question is how do I say the word exactly which is confirming a yes

  • so to say this word correctly we're actually going to think about saying

  • some words which will make it a little bit easier for you to remember so

  • technically you can say this word with a short I sound to begin the word exactly

  • and that is totally fine we are going to learn it as if you're saying the word

  • egg the thing that comes out of the chicken that we eat and is very

  • delicious so we're going to say eggs and make sure you use that z sound for

  • this because that's technically how we make the word egg a plural cause we add a Z

  • sound to it eggs we're going to quickly move into the word act like an actor and

  • actress well they will act on the stage and they will pretend that they're a

  • different character so eggs act may be think that eggs act a certain way if

  • that helps you and then we're gonna end with ly by touching the tip of your

  • tongue to the back of your top front teeth and then smiling for that e please

  • keep in mind that again we're getting a little technical that this Zact is the

  • middle syllable but if you say it quickly all together it's gonna all come

  • out just fine the middle syllable is actually the stressed syllable so that

  • will be a little bit longer louder and higher eggs-actly exactly exactly

  • exactly that is exactly how you pronounce this word give it a try I know

  • people will notice the difference if you found this helpful we would love it if

  • you gave us a like and share this with your friends please subscribe if you

  • that too and if you have questions or comments leave them in the comment
