Linking Words Together

Lesson 35; Part A

galka.jpgWe use the sounds /j/ and /w/ to link a vowel sound at the end of a word with a vowel sound at the beginning of the next word.
galka.jpgIf the first word ends with a vowel sound like /i/ or /i:/, and the next word starts with any vowel sound, we use /j/ to link the words. Listen.

jor four

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.

A: I'm afraid the boss is busy. B: When can I see_j(h)er?
