Word Stress in Sentences Casual


T Sounds: Casual Word Stress in Sentences

Here we will practice the same sentences as before. We will see how they change for casual situations such as talking to a regular coworker or a friend.  When speaking this way, you will use less stress, pause less often and let the words flow together more. 

When you see “same,” this means that there are no extra points of casual English in the sentence. In other sentences, the extra points are shown. These are:

– H in Have can be dropped
– Connect “are” to the noun that comes before it
– Will is reduced to a contraction
– In “plan to” the T becomes a D 
– In “2:00 to 5:00” the T becomes a D
– “Our” sounds like “ar”
