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

  • New York.

  • This week's Word of the Week is actually two words, New York. New York begins with the

  • N consonant sound, where the front, flat part of the tongue will lift and touch the roof

  • of the mouth here, nn, nn. Then we have the 'oo' as in 'boo' vowel, New, New. So the lips

  • do have to round for that. New. Then we have the Y consonant sound, yy, and the AW as in

  • LAW followed by the R consonant sound. So for the vowel, the jaw has to drop, New Yo--,

  • and then the tongue will pull back for the R sound, New Yor--k. And the back part of

  • the tongue will lift up and touch the soft palate here, kk, and pull away to make the

  • K sound. Don't forget to drop your jaw for the vowel there. New York, New York. I live

  • in New York.

  • That's it, your Word of the Week. Try it out yourself. Make 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.
