Pronunciation | Basics of Spoken English

Pronunciation- Good English pronunciation means that whatever you are speaking Other people can understand very easily. Which means we make a sound of words. 

English is a kind of language in which cannot judge by the “word” that what will be its pronunciation.

Importance of correct pronunciation

We can assign the following reasons for the necessity and importance of correct pronunciation.

  • First impression

When you meet someone and as soon as you start a conversation, that person will neither pay attention to your grammar nor your Vocabulary. That time only pronunciation is the determinant of Your first impression.

  • Communication

If you are not well in English grammar then and you can run by using simple grammatical structures.

If your vocabulary is not good then you can use simple words but if your PRONOUNCE WORD is not well then it’s a fault, and you will face problems during communication with other people. 

Is Your pronunciation?

You might be thinking that you can speak in your class, with teachers and also with your friends so show your pronunciation is good.

English is a foreign language for us our pronunciation maybe ok according to you there. but the reality is that your pronunciation is not good.

What’s good English pronunciation? (Standard English pronunciation)

Good English pronunciation means that whatever you are speaking Other people can understand very easily.

It is not necessary that your pronunciation is should be like an American style. There are two types of pronunciation in which American pronounce in a different way and Britishers speaks in a different way.

If you want to understand standard English pronunciation, Then you have to watch CNN, BBC like T.V channels for English “pronunciation”. 

Learning the pronunciation

To pronounce words, we push air from our lungs upward via our throat and vocal cords through our mouth past our tongue and outside between our teeth and lips.

To change the sound that we are making, we mainly use the muscles of our mouth, tongue, and lips to control the shape of our mouth and the flow of air.

When we can control the shape of our mouth and the flow of air then our pronunciation is clearer and other men and women understand us easily.

What is Word Stress?

Word stress is the base of understanding Spoken English. A word is made by many syllables and when we pronounce a syllable by giving stress then that is called Word stress.

What are Syllables?

Every word is made by syllables. In a word, syllables can be more than one. The following are the examples of syllables by reading you can understand.

If you observe carefully then you will see in every syllable there at one Vowel is there or Vowel sound.

In English Spoken it is very important to know about Word Stress for good pronunciation. It is not used in every language. As Japanese, French, In these languages, there is the same syllable While in English you must have to know about word stress for good pronunciation.

In English, we have to pronounce some syllables effectively. Examples you can see-

  • PHO TO GRAPH

In this word there is three-syllable but when we Pronounce PHO it needs stress.

  • PHO TO GRAPH ER

In this word there is 4 syllable when we pronounce then we have to stress of TO.

Americans mostly care about word stress. During English Speaking If you care about your word stress then your pronunciation becomes good.
