-AGE and -ACE Endings: 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. New points in this lesson are:
– that has = thed’as –the T becomes a D sound
– it takes = i’takes –the T is pronounced one time
– those who = those’oo –can drop the H sound
– not have = nod’ave –the T becomes a D and the H is dropped — you can also replace do not have with didn’ave
1. My friend works for an older company thed’as a great heritage.
