Time To Learn.....

Writing and articulating words are different........I am sure you know this?

Let's try!






 I know someone who cannot pronounce this without the ''B''...if you correct she says you are pronouncing ''Tom''..LOL
Dont forget the ''TH''

Wow.so wonderful! I think I love this.

Broomstick said...

I can honestly say I didn't know "veg-table".
That "resume" spelling is incorrect. It should be "rΓ©sumΓ©".
Stellz, another word that gets bastardized is "via". Its correct pronunciation is "va-yah" but most pronounce it "vee-ah"

PASTOR'S DAUGHTER said...

Told our security guard in the office, to buy me a "sa shay" detergent so i could wash my hankie and the nigga was like "madam wetin be sa shay detergent" hian i told him ariel detergent in "sa shay" he said "oooh madam you mean ariel wey dey sachet"? I look just smh. The annoying thing is they dont seem to want to agree its wrong. na Often and data own na im dey crack my head pass. You tell people is "day ta" dey will abuse your ancestor and call you crazy names, some will even say you are just forming phonetics for nothing, which yeye school you go like say na crime to speak well. Hian as e be so i dont even speak english again na correct pigin i dey blow.
The only time i speak english na when i get seminar or briefing i cannot come and go and kill my sef from arguing with people or correcting dem so it wont lead to fight.

Lifeisizzy said...

In the case of OFTEN both pronunciations are correct.....it can be pronounced either with or without the T. Just like the case of the word ROUTE, it can be pronounced either as ROOT or ROWT in American English. But we teach with British English majorly in Nigeria. We have so many common cases eg February,tomato , envelope,aunt e.t.c
I just love the English language,you can never know it all. It evolves with time,culture,trends and the likes.
Be careful before correcting anyone,you might just be wrong.

I remember going to a stall nd said I want to buy Sachet water pronounced it as above. The man there was just looking at me nd asking me the name of my school.

Tetrina said...

...Pronunciations cannot be the same cus of our accent. The Pronunciations up there is how the Brits pronounce words. It'll deffo be different for someone from West, East, South, North Africa, the Americas and Asia. No matter how you try correcting, lol.

Sa-shay?😲😲

not Pure water 'Sacheeti'?Kai **covers face**

Adeniji Bisi said...

For the vi-ekle...

Want u to note that, in pronunciation, spellins are not bin considered.

Words are drilled according to how they r bin pronounced.. Wrong pronunciation gives wrong drillin.

Wen u say vehicle it means u r sayin... Veheekle.. Long vowel e.. So its a short vowel ee.


If u are conversant with shorthand, u will know its very phonetic in nature


Mc pinky

Adeniji Bisi said...

It is called silent letters..

One of the features of pronunciation is

*silent letters r omitted and and alo letter R.. No mata wia it appears cannot be omitted

Dear all, French is my mother tongue and i am just learning English. Can anyone give me advice regarding articulation and prononciation. Anything i can buy to sound right?

Anonymous said...

This to me just boils down to what and how we were taught in school. Our teachers need to be sent back to school. The bad thing is that when you are old it now becomes harder to learn things the right way. Thank God for the kind of schools our children attend now. Most times they correct the wrong English I speak and at those times I am happy at the school fees I pay for them. Knowledge is power people so embrace it always. Stella the impact of this new section on your blog will go a long way pls do not stop. Thanks cos I learnt the right way to pronounce some words today. However, we speak the British English here so pls dont loose sight of that.

Ma resume has two different pronunciation depending on which word you want to use exactly it can be resume as in cv which is what was pronounced there or resume as in to begin which is a different pronunciation. So resume is a word with 2 different pronunciation. Thank you ma....

He's your security guard cut him some slack biko. If he's opportune to attend the schools you attended he won't be a security guard.

Yes this is British. Some other pronunciations you condemned are no wrong they are just American pronunciation. Americans say off-ten, the t is silent in British pronunciation.
