My daughter is about to marry into a family with the name Meharg. Some members pronounce it M'Harge (with a French sound at the end) and others M'Harj with short ending. They tell me their family relates back to Ireland, which to me sounds like neither the two used. I see it as simply as it sounds with a hard 'g' at the end. They also omit the 'e' Anyone know of this name who can help?.

The phrase: "I saw it" phonetically looks like: /aɪ 'sɔ ɪt/ There should be a glide between the words "saw" and "it" but I'm not sure which one, the "y" or the "w" glide. /aɪ 'sɔ(w)ɪt/ or /aɪ 'sɔ(y)ɪt/ Which pronunciation is correct? Thank you!

Hi, This is a video from youtube, named "Asian Parents React To I Love You (ORIGINAL) ": Can you tell me what the girl said at 1:39-40? What did she say at 3:32-33? What did the man say at 4:17-18? They said too fast. So I can't understand those parts. Thank you very much.

Hi guys, I am practicing English pronunciation, and I need a suitable resource to practice. I am looking for a video of a Native English speaker's mouth while he is speaking most common English words. I looked up YouTube for that and I found limited sources with random words. I am looking for a corpus based video that is design to teach how to pronounce English words. I calculated the hours needed to do that, and its about 9 hours to pronounce 10K word. I guess such thing could add to one's YouTube's channel, and would be used for many people around the world. Does anyone interested in doing that?

Hey, I am french and I've been watching for more than 70 hours of american Tv shows/movies with english subtitles on, I can now easily understand the dialogues with the subtitles on but here comes the problem when I try to remove the subtitles I can't even understand half of the dialogues sometimes I can understand like 50% of the dialogues sometimes when the accent is too hard to understand I can only understand few words lol Should I keep watching again and again with the english subtitles on ? Or should I watch without any subtitle even though I will only understand few phrases or words ?

Hello, I heard people pronounce the indefinite article "a" in two different ways. One is - what I consider the standard way - pronounced like the first letter of e.g. "accomplishment" (the phonetic symbol for this is an upside-down "e" but I can't type this here) and the other is pronounced like the first letter of the alphabet [ey]. However, the second pronounciation is not always used but only used in some cases. I could not figure out yet which these cases are. Can you tell me about these two ways of pronouncing "a" and when they are used? Regards, Paul
