Pronunciation - N, KN

일반 조회 수 439 추천 수 0 2013.06.22 02:14:33 The N sound may be a little difficult to say! After this pronunciation lesson, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DO IT! Learn how to say words that begin with N and KN! TRANSCRIPT: "What's new?" Has anyone ever said that to you before? And you don't understand what they've said to you? "What's new?" New York. New Jersey. No, "what's new?" is another way of saying, "Hello. How are you?" And my name's Ronnie. Today, I'm going to teach you about the letter "N", written like this in the capital. Hah! Where's my marker gone? It's disappeared. Written in the smaller case, it is like this "n." So, a lot of people have difficulty pronouncing the letter "N". This lesson is for Rick. Rick, you typed in a beautiful comment and said, "Ronnie, I cannot pronounce the letter "N" properly. Can you help me?" And I said, "Sure, Rick." This lesson's for you. Today's lesson is "n" as in "knew" Hah! What's this? What is a dirty little "k" doing here in front of the "n"? Did you know that in English, if you have the "kn" like this, the "k" - shhh -- is silent. So this word "knew" is the exact same pronunciation, as this word "new". Shocking, I know. So if I take my magic red marker, and all of a sudden, this will make sense to you, with the "kn" sound, the delightful little "k," you don't say it, it's silent. Don't say it. Don't ever say it like "canoe"; "canoe" is like the boat that you row. Mm-mm, so when we say this word it's the exact same word, as this word, "knew" - "new" Now when you want to say the "n" word! Hah! The "n-word" -- I would never say that. What you want to do is you want to put your tongue, huh, at the top of your mouth. And it has to be spread across your mouth and hitting the back of your teeth. So, your whole tongue is going to cover all of the top of your mouth, and you're going to press your tongue up and go "n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n". The "n-n-n-n-n-n" sound is voiced. That means if you put your hands here, it vibrates. So, if you go "n-n-n-n-n", "n-n-n-n-n", it's easily confused with the "m-m-m-m-m", with the "M" sound. The difference, "n-n-n-n-n", is that your mouth is open and your tongue is all the way up, pressed against the top of your mouth for the "N". With the "M" sound, your mouth is closed. Your mouth is closed, "m-m-m-m-m", and your tongue is in the middle of your mouth. So, "n-n-n-n-n" and "m-m-m-m-m"; so now you have the "n-n-n-n-n" pronunciation, that's cool. This word again, because it's a "k" and an "n" together, and a "w." What's happened here? English is strange. This word is actually the exact same word as "no." So the difference in meaning - you guys might know the difference; "know" means to understand. And this "no" means negative. So, "I know" the spelling is like this. But, "no" there're no silent letters. This word "knew" is the past tense of "know." So you can say, "I knew that, Ronnie." This word "new" means it's not old. Okay, so "new" is the opposite of old. We're going to go on to some other "n" words to help you study your pronunciation. So with your tongue at the roof of your mouth you say "n-n-never", "n-n-never". Then you have the word "n-n-now", "now". It rhymes with the word "cow" - now, cow "n-never", "now". The magic twist, sometimes you want to twist your neck and it makes a cracking sound. This part of your body is called your "neck". Sometimes you have a sore "neck" because you're watching too many YouTube videos. It's all right. Just give it a crack, and you'll be fine, and "neck". And the word "night" there's also another "kn" spelling for this. It is exactly the same pronunciation, but this word "knight" means an old warrior that rode around on horseback. So, you will see medieval knights or Knights of the Round Table, if you're into knighting. The pronunciation is the same. The meaning is different. So you have to be very confused about this "kn" thing, again, so a "knight" is basically a warrior from the olden times, and "night" is the opposite of day. There's another exception. If you go to the beautiful land of America or in some places in Canada, and I'm sure the UK, you might see a word like this. And you go "'nite." Oh, hah! Oh, oh, oh, hold on. That makes sense. The spelling makes sense there. Sometimes Americans do it well. This word is the exact same word as this one. They just don't mess around with all the extra letters. So, this word is the same as this word "night". A difference is American and British spelling. If you go to fast food restaurants or a lot of advertising, even in Canada you will see this word written [informally]. There's one more I'd like to teach you, "knot" and "not." This "knot" again, the "k" is silent. And it has the exact pronunciation as don't do it, "not." This "knot" is when you tie something together, doodle-loodle-loodle-loo, like your shoe, you make a "knot".
