Hello, guys.
My name is [email protected]
In this video, I'm going to talk to you about how to pronounce words with a silent 'd' in English.
There are so many words in English that are actually spelled with a 'd'
that you don't pronounce.
It's a silent 'd'.
For example, if I say the word, 'judge', the 'd' is silent.
It's spelled with a 'd', but I don't actually pronounce it.
Another example would be the word 'sandwich'.
It's written with a 'd', but you don't actually pronounce it.
I have a list of the most common words.
So let's get started.
Let's start the list.
Please repeat after me.
abridge
acknowledge
adjacent
adjective
adjust
badge
bridge
budge
budget
cartridge
drudge
