ok I think for me is VERY DIFFICULT to have an a British Accent, really :/ although I have a fluent English xD
but today I learned a little of "standard english".
[Standard English: refers to whatever form of the English language is accepted as a national norm in an Anglophone country.]
so, one English that everybody of English country accept. [[[[or just for someone "british english" -accent- I think.(?)]]]]
within the Standard English we have:
language and oral expression~
study of phonetics and phonology.
>>PHONOLOGY: sound emission
>>PHONETICS: symbols that represent the sound
in my class we started talking about vowels, consonants and syllables.
first, my teacher said that "always in English one syllable more relevant than the other "
for example: Oración ("prayer" in spanish)
in spanish this word is are not grading of one and another syllable. I mean, the first "O" and the last "O" are equal to pronounce-->
but in english NEVER is like that-->
("WO-TAH" in Spanish sound xD)
so yes, English and Spanish accent are very very different. BUT! There is an accent in Argentina, called "cordobés accent" that is very similar to the british accent.
#VOCAL CORDS/FOLDS ~ -folds is meaning "fold" (doblar in spanish
)--> "doubling our tongue"-
my teacher started to talk a bit about some consonants and vowels.
d: is pronounced like an explosion (vocalization of the vocal cords (using tongue)
t: sound = air (makes no effort of the vocal cords)
if there is a vowel and the next letter is an R, that "R" at standard level that letter is silent (no pronunciation)
so in spanish that´s "FO-MAL" not "FOR-MAL"
-then, in another cases there is a rotation of the "R".
ROSE --> (tongue: to pronounce this letter the tip of the tongue is positioned at the top of the mouth, in back.)
but in spanish the tongue don't make this movement (since the tip of the tongue is positioned at the level of the upper teeth)
>when pronounce or not the "R" (and some other consonants)
the "R" is pronounced when the following word begins with a vowel.
ex: CAR OF YOU (?)
the word "CAR" without other word the last letter (R) is silent.("CAA" in spanish.p)
when the following word begins with a consonant is silent too.
ex: "CAR VOCAB" ("CAA VOCAB" in spanish.p)
when are CONSONANT >--< VOWEL There is a link between those words.
ex: ADAM IS A CHEF.
>The silent "E"
-DANCE: when are many consonants or syllables the letter "e" is silent. (in spanish.p is "DANS-")
-HE: short letter or a single syllable "e" is pronounced like a "I" in spanish.
>a vowel between two consonants
a vowel between two consonants is pronounced like in spanish.
-DOT = "DOT"
-PIN = "PIN"
but this is altered when are another vowel as the "e"
DOTE = "DOUTE" (spanish.p)
PINE = "PAIN" (spanish.p)
well, this is the end for now~~
is only a simple explanation of the standard release english from my teacher! (or what I understood lol)
really it´s very hard ;____;
