OK. Now we’re going to do some pronunciation practice.

Students learning English often complain that native speakers speak too fast.

Well, it’s true. English speakers do run their words together, so it’s often very difficult to hear when one word ends and another begins.

To make your spoken English sound natural, it’s important for you to do this too.

You need to learn to link words ending in a ‘final consonant’ sound to words with an ‘initial vowel’ sound.

Let’s look at some words linked with ‘of’.

People have always been fascinated with death. Most of the mysteries that you see on television, the films that you see, involve murder in one kind or another.

Crocodiles are one of the last remaining dinosaurs, and the idea of a crocodile coming out of the water and grabbing somebody is absolutely riveting.

I read about the death of the German tourist who was taken by a crocodile. It didn't put me off coming to the Northern Territory, quite the opposite.


He uses the phrases:
‘most of’,
‘one of’,
‘out of’,
‘death of’.

But in sentences, these phrases will usually become linked together:
‘most of, most of’,
‘one of, one of’,
‘out of, out of’,
‘death of, death of’.

Notice that ‘of’ in these phrases is unstressed.
Practice these ones:
‘many of, many of’,
‘most of, most of’
‘one of, one of’
‘several of, several of’.


Listen to the differences when I read these sentences in a natural, conversational way.
'One of my best friends lives here'.
'One of my best friends lives here'.
'Many of the trees have died'.
'Many of the trees have died'.

'I enjoy most of her songs'.
'I enjoy most of her songs'.

People have always been fascinated with death. Crocodiles are one of the last remaining dinosaurs and the idea of a crocodile coming out of the water and grabbing somebody is absolutely riveting.

He says people have always been fascinated with death.

People ‘have always’.

Notice how in conversation, we link the final consonant sound ‘v’, with the initial vowel sound ‘aw’:
‘have always’,
‘Crocodiles are, crocodiles are’,
‘is absolutely, is absolutely’.

Ok, now let’s try these sentences.
‘She is always studying hard.’
‘She is always studying hard.’
‘They aren’t scared by crocodiles.’
‘They aren’t scared by crocodiles.’

So make sure you practice words in phrases and sentences. That way you’ll get used to linking your words, and your spoken English will sound more natural.

And don’t forget to listen to native speakers as much as you can, and try to copy them, even if they do speak fast!

And that’s all for today. I’ll see you next time on Study English. Bye bye.
