Hi. I'm Tim and this is my Pronunciation workshop.
Here I'm going to show you how English is really spoken. Come on, let's go inside.
When you meet someone for the first time, there are several things you can say. If you want
to be formal, you could say 'How do you do?' But there is another, less formal expression.
Do you know what it is? Let's meet some of the people of London.
Well, it's nice to meet you too. Now, the
word 'meet' ends in the sound /t/, and the word 'you' begins with /j/, don't they? Or
do they? Listen again. What can you actually hear when these two sounds come together?
In fluent speech, when one word ends in /t/
and the next begins with a /j/ sound, like 'you' or 'yours', then the two sounds come
together and change to /ʧ/. So 'meet you' becomes /miːʧuː/. This is an example of assimilation.
Now you might remember that in a previous video I mentioned that the /t/ sound can disappear
in between two consonants. Well, this can still happen if the next word is 'you' or
'your', but it's more usual for the /t/ to change to /ʧ/ in this case. Here are some
more examples.
Right, so you've heard the examples, and now
it's your turn. Are you ready to start? Listen and repeat.
Well done. Now remember, if you want to learn
more about pronunciation, then please visit our website, And that
is about it from the pronunciation workshop for this week. I'll see you soon. Bye bye!
Ugh. That is not right.
Hello, is that Tim? It's Tom.
Oh hi, Tom. Yeah it's Tim.
So, did you enjoy your tea?
No. It was disgusting.
Ha ha, that's because I put salt in, instead
of sugar - gotcha!
Why, you little... I'm gonna get you. I have
a very particular set of skills. Skills that make me a nightmare for someone like you. I
will hunt you down. I will find you. And I will put shaving cream on your pillow.
Brothers eh?! Well I guess that goes to show that you can't always get what you want. Now, time to start plotting my revenge.
