Pronouncing career, carrier & Korea
One of my accent reduction coaching clients asked me a great question regarding the pronunciation of these three words:
Easy to mispronounce
These words are easy to mispronounce if you don’t use American style syllable stress and schwa correctly!
Let’s take a look
The first vowel sound is schwa. The stressed vowel sound is stressed.
Say it like this: cǝ reɚ→
The first vowel sound is a stressed. The second syllable has a minor stress.
Say it like this: caɚ➝riʸɚ
The first vowel sound is schwa. The stressed vowel sound is in the middle. Then add need to add another schwa.
Say it like this: Kǝre→ʸə
Syllable stress & schwa are key!
I teach you how to do use syllable stress & schwa to say the words you use everyday clearly and correctly in my accent reduction coaching programs.
