This video is the 3rd of 4 videos I'll be posting on American English Intonation. These short video clips are taken from my 35 minute video lesson on Intonation which is a part of the 12 week online Pronunciation Pro training program. Go to https://pronunciationpro.com/signup to sign up for 1 free week of the program.
This week as I've been preparing these videos I've been thinking a lot about intonation. It's amazing how many daily interactions I have that rely so heavily on intonation. I've been experimenting a little by using less than ideal pronunciation of sounds while using standard intonation.
For example, I play basketball in the mornings a few days a week. As I was leaving this morning I said, "Have a good day". My pronunciation was sloppy, I hardly moved my mouth and the only word that was probably understandable was "day". However, my listener knew exactly what I was saying because of my intonation.
The same goes for other common phrases such as,
"How are you doing"? - /howeryadooin/
"Ya comin?" - /yuhkumin/
"nice to meet you" - /nicetuhmeechew/
"What are you doing?" /whuderyuhdooin/
There's SO much to talk about when it comes to intonation which is why I am hosting a FREE webinar on American English Intonation! Visit my blog to register for the webinar!
You are very welcome! I have many EFL teachers who refer their students to my program as a supplement to their own program. It's great because it's only $19.97/month which makes if a very affordable resource as they are learning English. Better to learn the correct pronunciation from the beginning so you are not having to break bad habits down the road!
