Linking Words Together

Lesson 34; Part A

When we write there are spaces between all the words, but when we speak we link a lot of the words together, so it sounds like this: whenwespeakwelinkalotofthewordstogether.

galka.jpg34.1.jpgListen and notice how a consonant sound at the end of a word is linked to a vowel sound at the start of the next word.  
Look_at that! Breakfast_in bed!

A: Bought
_it?
B: No, caught
_it!
   
That's
_enough! Switchw_it_off!


Now say the sentences, making the same links.

galka.jpgOf course, we can also separate the words if we want to. Listen to the difference.
I said switch ... it... off!!!

 

Lesson 34; Part B

galka.jpgListen and repeat these poems.
English
Speak_it
Write_it
Read_it
You know
you really
need_it


Busy
Work
_all day
Run
_away
Boss
_and me
Can't
_agree
Fill
_a cup
Drink
_it_up
Wait
_a while
Walk
_a mile
Meet
_at_eight
Don't be late!

Don't forget
First you close
_it
Then you lock
_it
And put the key back
_in your pocket 

 

 
idea.jpgImportant for listening!
The letter h at the beginning of he, his, her and him is often not pronounced so the first sound in these words is often a vowel sound. Listen.
Can we go back? My husband's forgotten_(h)is passport.
A: Where's the boss? B: I don't know, I haven't seen_(h)er.
Where there's a /t/ sound before a vowel, some people don't pronounce the /t/ clearly. Listen.
switch_i(t) off         drink_i(t) up        can'(t) agree
