Sometimes English learners have trouble understanding naturally spoken English. One of the reasons for this how native English speaker pronounce certain words. Especially in American English, we prefer to have a smooth air flow between words when we speak. Certain sounds, when pronounced as written, cause the air flow between words to stop and so to prevent the stop, we change the pronunciation when we speak. For today’s English lesson, let’s take a look at three words and phrases that are normally pronounced differently that they are written.
