Hi. I'm Tim and this is my Pronunciation workshop. Here I'm gonna show you how English is
really spoken. Come on. Let's go inside.
How do you ask for help? And what is the connection
between this... and this? Well, this is a piece of what? And what is the female version
of this animal called? Put them together and what do you get? Well, here's how some people
in London ask for help.
Would you do me a favour? Would you do me a favour?
Would you do me a favour? Would you do me a favour?
Would you do me a favour?
Wood. Ewe. Would you - get it? Now, the words 'ewe' and 'you' have the same pronunciation,
don't they? But what happens to the word 'you' when it comes after the sound /d/? Watch again.
Would you do me a favour? Would you do me a favour?
Would you do me a favour? Would you do me a favour?
Would you do me a favour?
In fluent speech when one word ends in a /d/ sound and the next word begins in a /j/ sound,
the two sounds come together and change to a /ʤ/ sound. You also might have noticed
that the /uː/ in 'you' can change to schwa. So 'would you' becomes 'would you', or even
'would ya'. This is an example of assimilation. Here are some more examples.
I'm sad you decided to quit. Could you get here by midnight?
Should you see him, can you give him a message? I don't think the gold you bought was real.
Right, so you've heard the examples. What do we do? Listen and repeat.
I'm sad you decided to quit.
Could you get here by midnight?
Should you see him, can you give him a message?
I don't think the gold you bought was real.
Well done. And remember, if you want to learn more about pronunciation, then please visit
our website, bbclearningenglish.com. And that is about it from the pronunciation workshop
for this week. I'll see you soon. Bye bye! Right, now, what am I gonna do with you?
Ha ha - what am I gonna do with 'ewe', get it? Oh come on, would you give a guy a break?!
She gets it.
