just_studentHy everyone I have a big problem because I cannot differentiate some sounds and pronunciations in English. Can anyone explain to me when ð and when θ sounds are pronounced? And also how can I differentiate the sounds ə and æHi Just Student:
If you go to www.dictionary.com , you will find everything that you need. Here is the entry for "thesis." If you click on "show IPA", you will see the phonetic transcription. If you click on the speaker symbol, you can hear the pronunciation.
the⋅sis/ˈθisɪs/ Show IPA
–noun, plural -ses [-seez] Show IPA .
Mr WordyRemember also that native English speakers' pronunciation varies depending on which part of the world they are from and which social group they belong to.yes, indeed. Dictionary.com has both "standard" British and American English pronunciations for aluminum, but not for tomato. It seems to have a bias for American English, but at least the sources are given...
I have seen sites showing variations in pronunciation across the British Isles. There are major differences! Across the US, there are regional variations; maybe not as drastic as in the UK.
Indians and Nigerians also have distinct accents, too.
People are waiting to help.
