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.

  1. RObot
  2. rəBOdic
