  • Hi there Jennifer from Tarle speech with your pronunciation question. We have

  • two words today: warrior a strong person or a fighter and worrier stressed or an

  • anxious person. Let's go ahead and take a look at our words. We have warrior and

  • worrier. So I'm going to give you the three syllable pronunciations first and

  • then I'm going to give you an option for warrior if you just want to say two

  • syllables. Let's start with the endings so both of these words are going

  • to end with E and then er so to do this you're going to say the e sound by

  • smiling and make that vowel nice and long. e And then move to the er and to

  • do this you are going to have square tense lips,

  • tip of your tongue is going to be either pointed down or flipped back, just don't

  • touch your teeth and don't let that tongue move. Make sure your lips are nice

  • and tense and that will avoid you from saying uh. All right so e-er e-er e-er

  • Now what's the difference at the beginning, for warrior we are going to

  • start with war and to do that you're going to have puckered lips for that W

  • sound. And then you're going to move to the or by pulling the lips back into

  • that square tense shape. war war war For worrier we are going to say were and to

  • do that again you are going to pull your lips back but this is going to be a

  • little bit shorter. right. So we have war and were war and were. Another difference

  • is my lips are more puckered for the war and they are less puckered for the word

  • were were war were war were. Let's put that all

  • together warrior warrior warrior worrier worrier worrier. I do hear some people

  • say warrior and that is an acceptable pronunciation. So that's an option as

  • well so again we have warrior and worrier and now in a sentence. To be more

  • courageous the worrier envisioned herself as a warrior. So to be more

  • courageous the worrier envisioned herself as a warrior. Give it a try

  • people are going to notice the difference. If you found this helpful
