The pronunciation of the words ROBOT and ROBOTIC are quite different.
See yesterday’s post on how to pronounce ROBOT.
Today I’ll demonstrate how to pronounce ROBOTIC.
RO BO TIC (2 syllables)
Step 1. Reduce the O in the first syllable. Make this O sound like a schwa.
Step 2. Stress the O in the second syllable. Say this O with an /ɑ/ as in Olive sound.
Step 3. Say the T in the last syllable with a /d/ sound.
When I work with my coaching clients, I spell the word like this.
- rə BO dic
Listen to me say the words ROBOT and ROBOTIC side by side.
