In this American English pronunciation video,
we're going to go over
the pronunciation of the word ‘'sorry'’.
This week’s word of the week is ‘sorry’.
It’s a two syllable word with stress
on the first syllable. DA-da, sorry.
It begins with the S sound
where the teeth are together.
Sss. tongue tip is down here.
Then we have either the AH as in FATHER
or the AW as in LAW vowel.
I make mine more like the AW as in LAW vowel.
So my lips will be rounded more. So-, So-.
But the tongue tip stays down here.
Then you have to pull it back for the R.
Make sure you don’t pull it back early.
Drop your jaw with the tongue down,
so we get that vowel sound. Sor-.
Then you can see the tongue
pulls back for the R sound.
The jaw will also lift as the tongue
goes to the roof of the mouth
in the middle for the R.
Sor-, sorr-y.
And to finish we have the ending
unaccented E sound.
So the tongue tip is down here
and the front part is stretching up here
towards the roof of the mouth,
Ee, ee, ee, ee.
Since it’s unstressed it will be very fast,
ee. ee. Sorr-y, sorry.
So your tongue which is back here
for the R will come forward again
for the E vowel.
Sorry. I’m so sorry.
That’s it your “word of the week”.
