Hi, I'm Tim and this is my pronunciation workshop.
Here, I'm gonna show you how English is really spoken. It'll help you become a better listener
and a more fluent speaker. Come on, let's go inside.
Now, when we speak English fluently, the sounds in words can join together, change or even
disappear entirely. Sometimes more than one of these can happen. Take this, for example.
Now, I'm sure you know what it is, but let's ask the people of London:
Now, the word 'sandwich' has an /n/ followed
by a /d/, doesn't it? Or does it? Listen again: what sound can you hear?
Instead of 'sandwich', we hear 'samwich'.
That's pretty crazy, right! So, what is going on? Well, first the /d/ disappears in between
two consonants. You might remember this from our video on elision. So 'sandwich' becomes
'sanwich'. Now, we have an /n/ followed by a /w/, and /n/ changes to /m/ before /w/.
You might remember this from our video on assimilation. So 'sandwich' becomes 'samwich'.
Have another look, this time in slow motion. Watch the shape of the mouth. Can you see
/nd/ or /m/?
Pretty cool, huh? Here are some more examples:
Ok, so you've heard the examples, and now
it's your turn. Are you ready? Listen and repeat.
Well done. Remember if you want to see more
on pronunciation please visit our website: bbclearningenglish.com. That's about it from
the pronunciation workshop for now. I'll see you soon. Bye. Now, where did I put that sandwich?
It was handmade, just for me.
