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.
