How to Pronounce Regular Verbs in English (FREE mp3)

How to Pronounce Regular Verbs in English (FREE mp3)

Learn how to pronounce regular verbs in English with this free mp3 download of the Facebook class from 5th September 2018.

Click below to listen.

 

Right-click here to download the mp3 file: How to Pronounce Regular Verbs in English (FREE mp3)

The main points from the class were:

  • We spend more time in class focusing on irregular verbs that regular verbs
  • All regular verbs are spelled with  ‘ed’ at the end
  • We need to remember how to pronounce this suffix. There are three ways:
  • If a verb ends with a  t  or  d  sound we pronounce an extra syllable:  uhd
  • If a verb ends with a vowel sound or a voiced consonant sound we pronounce  d
  • If a verb ends with an unvoiced consonant sound we pronounce  t
  • It’s important not to mix up  d  and  t. If you do, you can end up with a different word, e.g. played > plate, which can result in miscommunication

Purland's Word of the Day! Haughty

Purland’s Word of the Day! Haughty

Purland’s Word of the Day! Haughty

Increase your word power with Purland’s Word of the Day!

Are you haughty? Do you know anybody who is haughty? Let’s hope not!

A haughty person is somebody who is proud and arrogant and acts in a disdainful and stuck-up manner. You get the feeling that they think they’re much better than you – and everybody else, for that matter.

If you are haughty you believe you are superior, but in reality you are just too big for your boots – you have too high an opinion of yourself and could be described as vain or even an egomaniac!

If you know anybody who is haughty – or if you are haughty – please tell us about it in the comments below!


‘Terry’s boss is so haughty. She storms around the office all day barking orders at people. It’s really not on!’


adverb: haughtily

abstract noun: haughtiness

opposite adjectives: humble, unassuming

sounds like: naughty (in British English), body (in American English)

tone: formal / literary English

stress: first syllable

origin: 16th century French
