Here are five frequent issues that can make it difficult to understand what you're saying while you're speaking in English. Accent modification training can be extremely beneficial in treating these issues. Pitch, loudness, resonance, quality, and flexibility are examples of paralinguistic vocal qualities.

  • The “TH” sound. This is one of the trickiest sounds and to add insult to injury, there are two distinct ways to pronounce it!
  • The sounds of "W" and "V"
  • The sounds of "b" and "v"
  • The sound of "ed"
  • The sounds of "l" and "r"

Phonetics is separated into three categories based on how sounds are produced (articulatory), transmitted (acoustic), and perceived (auditive). Phones (human sounds), phonemes (units that determine meaning in a language), and allophones are the three types of sounds that must be recognised right away (non-distinctive units).

In most cases, we pronounce with a short sound (like "thuh"). When the precedes a vowel sound, however, we pronounce it as a lengthy "thee." We can use "emphatic the" [thee] to emphasise a word, whether it starts with a consonant or a vowel sound.

Others can readily comprehend what you're trying to communicate if you use the correct sounds when speaking. If you have excellent grammar and a wide vocabulary, effective pronunciation will aid people in hearing and understanding you more clearly.
