Listen to some other speakers saying the same examples, and notice the different /r/ sounds they use.
  • Where there's a letter r in a word, most people in England, Wales and Australia only pronounce it if
there's a vowel sound after it, in the same word or the next word. Listen.
four            no /r/
forty           no /r/
four days    no /r/
four eggs    /r/ is pronounced
four hours   /r/ is pronounced
  • But most people in America, Scotland, Ireland and the south-west of England always pronounce /r/ where there's a letter r in the spelling. Listen.
four            /r/ is pronounced
forty           /r/ is pronounced
four days    /r/ is pronounced
four eggs    /r/ is pronounced
