In this American English pronunciation video, we're going to go over the pronunciation of
the word 'favorite'.
This week's Word of the Week is 'favorite'. It can be pronounced with three syllables,
but most of the time you'll hear it with two, favorite, favorite. So, it begins with the
F consonant sound, ff, ff, then we have the AY as in SAY diphthong.
Make sure your jaw drops for that first sound of the diphthong, fa-, fa-.
Then we have the V consonant sound,
same position as the F, only this time it's voiced, fav- fav.
And the R consonant, IH as in SIT vowel, T, -rite, -rite. It's unstressed. -rite.
We may release the T, to make a True T sound,
or we may keep the tongue up in the T position, and not release the T,
making it a stop sound. Favorite, favorite, or favorite, favorite, with a light release. Favorite.
This is my favorite restaurant.
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.
