  • SPOKEN ENGLISH – THE ROLE OF ACCENT IN IT.
  •  YOU CARRY YOUR CASTE ON YOUR TONGUE.
  • THE ONE & ONLY METHOD OF CHASTE ACCENT IS LOUD RECITATION OF THE WORDS TWICE A DAY.

Pl read, reread, and reread the below noted guidelines. Understand the pattern of pronunciation very assiduously and meticulously before starting the norm of daily recitation.

Best of luck!

  • The thorough understanding of this key given below is absolutely imperative for every reader before starting regular loud recitation.  
  • The system is:
  • 1.   a as in  gate     ay

                   as   father     ah

                   as   hat         a

  • 2.   e as  in  feet     ee

as    get        e             

  • 3.   i     as in  fight     y*                 
  •       i    as  in fit         i
  • 4.   o as in note     oh
  •          as   rot          o
  • 5.   u as in union    yoo

as  tune       ew

as  cut        u

 

In all the words  in this book of pronunciation:

  • 1,  ‘s’ is  always soft:
  • 2. ‘z’ always hard:
  • 3.  ‘k’ = hard ‘c’;
  • 4.  ‘th’ as in ‘things’ is described as unvoiced,
  • 5. and in ‘the’  is  voiced.

 

  • N.B.: y* represent the long “i” . For example: “iodine” is represented as “eye-oh-din” “idyll” as “eye-dil” “fragile” as “fraj-yl” “eye” has been used to represent an initial long “i”  (“idyll” as “eye-dil”). “-ile” has been use for such endings. The endings  as –ite, -ize, and –ire have been retained. However, “-yn” has been used “-ine” in order to distinguish this ending from “-een, and “-in”.
