His car was old. -> [ca:]
His car isn't old -> [car]
What about "here" in these phrases? Do we act in a similar way?
here you are [hie]
here is [hier]
when "here" is alone -> here/in here [hie]
Am I right? Could somebody explain it?
Thanks in advance!
P.S. It should be "here it is" [hier] not "here is"
Here in Spain most people pronounce those final r's, too. There might be two explanations for that: either it's because of the huge influence of American English everywhere, or because we have a tendency to pronounce everything as it's written (so if we see an "r", we utter it).
Thank you very much for your reply. I think that "y" is a consonant. You pronounce it like [j] so in my opinion it should be [hieju:a:] in "here you are" but I'm not sure because everyone pronounces it differently
In Polish Language you pronounce each "r" that is why it couses us trouble.
