  • Hello everyone it is Jennifer from Tarle speech  with your question of the week. Our question of  

  • today is how do I say the word ordinary which  is basic , and ordinarily which is usually, and  

  • extraordinary or extraordinarily which  means extra special or very unusual.

  • So let's take a look at our words lots of  syllables um the big idea with the lesson today  

  • is that we are going to think about as words get  longer our vowel sounds have to get shorter and  

  • quicker. So again as words get longer our vowel  sounds get shorter and quicker and we are more  

  • likely to have a schwa sound that  uh sound in a word in longer words.

  • So let's look at word number one ordinary.

  • or duh nair ee or duh nair  ee ordinary ordinary ordinary

  • So we have four beats in ordinary.

  • Now we are going to add an  extra beat when we add that lee  

  • suffix and so you can see we're actually going  to have one more schwa sound in that word because  

  • we have to add another beat to that word so  we have to make some of the vowels shorter.

  • So we have or da nair uh lee or da nair uh lee

  • ordinarily ordinarily ordinarily s

  • So let's listen to those first two words

  • ordinary ordinarily ordinary ordinarily

  • So that second word sounds a little bit  

  • faster and that's because we have some  shorter beats especially that schwa syllable .

  • Now when we have extraordinary we're going  to change how we say that word a little bit  

  • we're going to start with that ek  stror din air e extraor dinairee

  • extraordinary extraordinary extraordinary

  • Right so we have five syllables there.

  • We're going to add another syllable and  we're going to have six syllables and the  

  • last word extraordinarily. So we're  going to have another schwa in there 

  • eks tro din air uh lee eks tro din  

  • air uh lee

  • extraordinarily extraordinarily

  • So we have for this last word  extraordinarily eks tro din air uh lee

  • extraordinaire uh-li

  • extraordinarily extraordinarily extraordinarily

  • Let's listen to those last two words extraordinary extraordinarily 

  • extraordinary extraordinarily

  • And let's listen to them all and how those  beats get faster as the word gets longer

  • ordinary ordinarily extraordinary extraordinarily ordinary ordinarily extraordinary extraordinarily

  • And now for a sentence The student commented ordinary was  

  • easy but pronouncing ordinarily, extraordinaryand extraordinarily took some practice.

  • So take some time for some practice and give it  a try people will notice the difference if you  

  • found this helpful we'd love a like a share  and a subscribe don't forget to check out  

  • our products on google play and iTunes and our  class options at Tarle speed thanks everyone!
