Word Stress in Sentences Casual

Stopped T and -ATE: Casual Word Stress in Sentences

Here we will practice the same sentences but more casually. 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. The new point in this lesson is:

* If want is followed by a vowel, drop the T and blend with the next word.
Our becomes ar in casual English. It can have the same sound in formal English if the speaker is not stressing the pronoun.  
1. We wan’ar team to generate the most successful project.
2. We should’nt underestimate the competition. 
3. For the meeting, we need separate documents detailing each of ar projects.
4. The manager’ll choose which project we should implement first.
5. We also need an estimate of ar budget. 
6. (same) We can advocate for our clients and associates.
7. Ar request should be moderate, though. 
8. Is anyone on ar team an expert negotiator?
9. We need someone who can facilitate a meeting and also push for ar goals.
