  • In this American English pronunciation video, we're going to go over the pronunciation of

  • the word 'tomorrow'.

  • This week's Word of the Week is 'tomorrow'. 'Tomorrow' is a three-syllable word with stress

  • on the middle syllable. So, we have da-DA-da. Tomorrow, tomorrow. The first syllable follows

  • the same rules as the word 'to'. So, the vowel will reduce to the schwa. To-, to-, just like

  • the word 'to'. You may even make the first sound, the True T, a Flap T, depending on

  • the sound before. Check out the video on how to say the word 'to' for those rules.

  • The second syllable, stressed, begins with the M consonant sound: tom-, tom-, tom-. Then

  • we have the AH as in FATHER vowel, so the jaw will need to drop. Tomo-, tomo-. Then

  • the tongue will pull back and up for the R consonant sound. Tomor-. And the jaw will

  • close for that somewhat as the tongue raises towards the roof of the mouth: tomor-, tomor-.

  • And finally, in the last syllable, we have the OH as in NO diphthong. Tomorrow, tomorrow.

  • So make sure your lips round for that. Tomorrow. What are you gonna do tomorrow? Did you notice?

  • I didn't make a True T, I made it a Flap. Do tomorrow. Do to-, do to-, do tomorrow.

  • What are you going to do tomorrow?

  • That's it, you're Word of the WeekTry it out yourselfMake up a sentence with

  • the word, record it, and post it as a video response to this video on YouTube.  I can't

  • wait to watch it.

  • That's it, and thanks so much for using Rachel's English.
