Hi there. First time user on these forums so I hope I have posted in the correct forum My 6 year old son is learning to read and is progressing steadily. However, he struggles to remember the spelling for words which use the diphthongs OW and OU. So for example, he'll think owl is spelt oul and bounce is spelt bownce. I need to find a rule or a way of being able to help him remember how to differentiate between the two spellings. I came across one rule that stated: " Ou or Ow: Use ou in the middle of a word and use ow at the end of words other than those that end in n or d ." But this does not allow for exceptions such as owl, growl, towel, loud, fowl, foul etc. Any help would be really appreciated! Thanks, Jon

Hello there, I'm a new immigrant to the U.S. I have noticed some people from work pronouncing the word Button differently. They would pronounce Button as buh-Inn. My question is, am I hearing them correctly, do Americans tend to pronounce this word like that ? and if yes, is it right to pronounce Bottom buh-Om and Gotten guh-Inn ? if not, could you please tell me how you would pronounce them. Thanks

I want to know what i need to do in order to speak cleary, consisely and intelligently. I've learned that most of the time, i'm at a loss for words, coversationally speaking, and may come across as unintelligent because my wording just isn't there. It's embarrasing. And it's caused me from being a social person. I also find myself sabotaging relationships with people because of this speaking problem I have. What am I lacking? I mean, I would talk to anyone. Im not that shy. I read alot. I've studied grammar privately. I've taken classes on public speaking, grammar and critical thinking. I use vocabulary books and dictionaries everytime I need them. I've also read books on comprehension, critical thinking, reasoning and listening effectively and I still dont think I speak effectively. I can enunciate a word well and can even imitate public speaking figures or TV/Movie personalities quite well. I'm not delusional because i've recorded myself and i notice that i fumble alot or stop to think for a sec about the next word or the idea as a whole i'm trying to convey. It's as if I cannot make my words flow. I've noticed how people can just flow with words as if were born to speak. Like news anchors speak marvelously, I think. I would love to speak as a news anchor does. How do they do it, I wonder. It's all i think about, speaking clearly. What's wrong? Do i have a mental problem perhaps? I was born in the U.S. and: ...

I have a question regarding the /æ/ pronunciation. I mean, I know how it sounds like and how to pronounce it, but sometimes I hear people pronounce it like /eɪə/. For example: Sam - instead of /sæm/ some people say /seɪəm/. Is it an American accent? And is the /æ/ sound pronounced like /eɪə/ all the time in that accent? Thanks in advance.

I am watcing "10 Cloverfield Lane" now and I've just found out that I could clearly understand what the women (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) says but have a little bit difficulty in understanding the guy (not John Goodman but the guy with arm injury) is saying. Is he speaking with a so-called Southern accent? or it is just my brain tricking on me?
