Lost or dropped syllables are an important feature of British English pronunciation. Every word has at least one syllable, and many have more. Some words lose a syllable when speaking in order to make it easier to keep the underlying rhythm of English. This lesson explains in detail what syllables are and shows you which words lose syllables when speaking. The exercises in the interactive quiz give you some practice in hearing the dropped syllables and will help you to practice dropping the syllables yourself to sound more natural and fluent.
Some English words begin with the letter H but don’t start with the / h / sound. This is because these words were borrowed into English from the original French. At first, they kept their French pronunciation, but gradually, over time, most of them became Anglicised and lost their French connection. Some of them, however, refused to lose their “posh” French pronunciation. These words, like honour, never had the / h / sound inserted at the beginning. I made this video and the English Activation Pack to help students like you learn which words should be pronounced with an initial / h / sound and which should not. There are 150 common English words in this English Activation Pack, and all have a recording of me giving the correct English pronunciation for you to copy. I have also included two interactive quizzes that will help you to master the vocabulary and the pronunciation. The quiz questions each have an audio file for you to listen to the pronunciation of the word in question. This is an extensive English Activation Pack that took a lot of effort to make. It was made at the request of my wonderful student, Monica, from Italy. Italian, Spanish, and French students will find this English Activation Pack particularly useful, though it will be helpful to any student of English looking to improve their vocabulary and pronunciation. Silent H at the Beginning of Words
Many English multisyllable words are made up of many parts including prefixes and suffixes, and if you learn the most common prefixes and suffixes, you can expand your vocabulary dramatically. The word unpredictability has two secondary stresses as well as the main stress that is found in all English words. It’s unusual for a word to have more than one secondary stress, but this is the result of unpredictability being composed of so many parts. There are several negative prefixes in English. The most common are: de, dis, il, im, in, ir, mis, and un. This lesson will introduce you to some of them as well as helping you to pronounce them. I also look at prominence for effect. The lesson also has a crossword puzzle which will help with negative prefixes.
