This was unfortunately not reflected by the authors of the dictionaries, and, in addition to that, English pronunciation has diverged even further from its spelling since the first editions of these dictionaries were written. As a result, English spelling has be- come very irregular.

This poses a much greater problem to learners of English than to native speakers, because native speakers know how to pronounce words; they just have to be able to spell them correctly, which is not such a big problem nowadays when anyone can use a spell checker.

Learners of English, on the contrary, meet most of their vocabu- lary in the written form first. It is often possible and even appropri- ate to derive the meaning of a new word from the context, but in- stead of looking up the correct pronunciation in a dictionary, learners tend to guess what the pronunciation might be according to their experience and then use this pronunciation internally when thinking about the word.

Unfortunately, such guesses are wrong most of the time. Nevertheless, these are all patterns that can be learned and you will do so in Part III of this book , because all the differ- ences are indicated in spelling in quite a regular way.

In addition to the problems we have already mentioned, there is no indication of stress placement in English whatsoever. In most lan- guages, stress placement is governed by relatively simple rules; in English, it is almost completely irregular apart from a few hard-to- follow patterns , and words can even change their meaning depend- ing on stress position.

Also, pronunciation of vowels usually changes depending on whether they are stressed. In terms of vocabulary, English is like a patchwork.

As a res- ult, there are often different words to express the same idea. This process results in an amount of vocabulary that is somewhat larger than necessary.

This is not a bad thing per se; it adds some ex- pressive power to English and makes it a good starting point for learning other European languages. In combination with English pronunciation and spelling problems, this can, however, be a huge nuisance to learners, especially since English spelling of such words usually reflects the original spelling in the language of origin, not its contemporary English pronunciation.

Even though learning English in general requires a substantial amount of time and dedication, I believe that after you finish read- ing this book, you should be able to cope at least with all the prob- lems mentioned above.

I hope that you will also enjoy doing so.

Even though there are rules and patterns for English pronunciation that can be learned this is what especially Part III of this book is about , there are many words whose pronunciation has to be learned by heart. The words are ordered so that the most common words come first, the least common last.

If you are interested in basic conventions used in the rest of this book, just read further. Of course there are exceptions and other rules. If you look at the pronunciation guide for new words, you will start to see the different rules and patterns. Diphthongs are just sounds made by two vowels placed together. Here is what they look like: a like in out or about.

This sounds like you are saying the name of the letter e.

This is an oo sound made by making your lips into an o shape. You can hear and see the difference between the two oo sounds in this video. R-controlled Vowels Vowels have a slightly different pronunciation when they are followed by the letter r. Do you hear the difference? It is a very small difference! And that is all for pronunciations!

You now know how to read the pronunciation guide for vowels and consonants.

If this seems like a lot of information, we recommend that instead of memorizing this right away, you use it as a guide. You will learn the guide quickly this way, without even realizing that you are learning it.We can show the morphological difference in our phonological representation.

I hope that you will also enjoy doing so.

Pronunciations vary with speakers or, for a single speaker, with tempo. We may also speak of age dialects — nobody expects teenagers to talk like their grandparents, or vice versa — and sex dialects — men and women use language differently.

The words are ordered so that the most common words come first, the least common last. Then decide if that consonant cluster also occurs at the end of monomorphemic words and, if so, give an example.

Anything that is said in the language has an abstract underlying form. A phoneme is an abstract unit which is realized in speech as different segments in different positions. Say this as you might say the letter u.
