The Chaos Of English Pronunciation by Gerard Nolst Trenité
 
06:58
This is different. Even a native English speaker has to find this interesting. English must be a very old language, because how else could one explain the random way we pronounce words? I guess the one good thing that has come out of the chaos: spelling bees! ;)

A bit of fun. The poem is not mine - I was sent it by a friend. I thought I would turn it into something more visual. Some of the words are not very common but that's not a problem as it's just a lighthearted way of looking at the lack of rules in English pronunciation. I hope you enjoy it.

English Pronunciation Poem | The Chaos by Dr. Gerard Nolst
 
09:15
http://www.pronunciationpro.com/youtube-free-trial/?keyword=EnglishPronunciationPoem=body If you are a nonnative English speaker then you know all too well that English pronunciation can be very confusing because of the overwhelming number of English exceptions to the rules. For example, why can’t you pronounce “mow” like you do in the word “cow”, or why do you sometimes pronounce “read” as “red”? English has many pronunciation exception to the rules. Learning the exceptions to the rules doubled with learning how to pronounce sounds in English can be exhausting. That’s why we have provided you with a little piece of American pronunciation help with this English pronunciation poem. I have recorded an audio recording of the abridged version of the famous English pronunciation poem (written by Gerard Nolst Trenité in 1922) so that nonnative English speakers can practice speaking along with me. As I always say: it’s not how it’s spelled that matters, it’s how it SOUNDS! THE CHAOS, BY GERARD NOLST Dearest creature in creation, Study English pronunciation. I will teach you in my verse, Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse. I will keep you, Suzy, busy, Make your head with heat grow dizzy. Tear in eye, your dress will tear. So shall I! Oh hear my prayer. Just compare heart, beard, and heard, Dies and diet, lord and word, Sword and sward, retain and Britain. (Mind the latter, how it’s written.) Now I surely will not plague you with such words as plaque and ague. But be careful how you speak: Say break and steak, but bleak and streak; Cloven, oven, how and low, Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe. Hear me say, devoid of trickery, Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore, Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles, Exiles, similes, and reviles; Scholar, vicar, and cigar, Solar, mica, war and far; One, anemone, Balmoral, Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel; Gertrude, German, wind and mind, Scene, Melpomene, mankind…. For the rest of the poem please click the link below: https://www.pronunciationpro.com/english-pronunciation/english-pronunciation-poem-exceptions-to-the-rules/ Note: the English accent you’ll hear is the Standard American English accent. I hope you enjoy this English pronunciation poem! Listen carefully to how I pronounce the words in this English pronunciation poem! The pronunciation in this English pronunciation poem is going to be very tricky! So listen carefully and repeat after me! And remember, have fun learning English! What other words have you noticed—when studying English—are pronounced differently than you expected? Let me know in the comments below!

I teach a special class on Saturday mornings to my Korean students. After some warm up activities and explanation of the right pronunciation of the words in the poem, they read it out loud. This is extremely difficult, even more so for second language speakers, but they did fantastically! I am very proud of them^^. English Pronunciation by G.

Billet does not rhyme with ballet, Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet. Blood and flood are not like food, Nor is mould like should and would. Viscous, viscount, load and broad, Toward, to forward, to reward. And your pronunciation's OK When you correctly say croquet, Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve, Friend and fiend, alive and live. Ivy, privy, famous; clamour And enamour rhyme with hammer. River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb, Doll and roll and some and home. Stranger does not rhyme with anger, Neither does devour with clangour. Souls but foul, haunt but aunt, Font, front, wont, want, grand, and grant, Shoes, goes, does. Now first say finger, And then singer, ginger, linger, Real, zeal, mauve, gauze, gouge and gauge, Marriage, foliage, mirage, and age. Query does not rhyme with very, Nor does fury sound like bury.

About this Video: It is said that if you can pronounce correctly every word in the chaos by Gerard Nolst Trenité, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world. What does it mean correctly? I guess you could say that within one specific accent, there is a correct and incorrect way. So let us focus on an RP accent (standard southern British English accent). Now, there are quite a few videos of this on YouTube, so what I thought I do is set you a challenge. I' going to speak the poem in a Standard southern British English accent, BUT I'm going to purposefully mispronounce 10 words in this poem. Yes, 10. And if you can spot these 10 differences, it will mean, in MY opinion that your awareness of British English Pronunciation is probably 90% better than native English speakers. So listen to the poem, and as soon as you spot a difference, write it down. And at the end, go down to the comments, see if anyone else spotted the same differences, and if not, post the difference in the comments below. I posted this video on the 14th March 2017, so if it's way after that, don't cheat by looking at the comments, watch, listen and spot the differences, then check below to see the answers, if indeed anyone has managed to spot them!

English Poem to help with your Pronunciation
 
06:49
Dearest creature in creation Studying English pronunciation, I will keep you, Susy, busy, Make your head with heat grow dizzy. Tear in eye your dress you'll tear, So shall I! Oh, hear my prayer, Pray, console your loving poet, Make my coat look new, dear, sew it! Just compare heart, beard and heard, Dies and diet, lord and word, Sword and sward, retain and Britain. (Mind the latter, how it's written). Made has not the sound of bade, Say said, pay-paid, laid, but plaid. Now I surely will not plague you With such words as vague as ague, But be careful how you speak, Say break, steak, but bleak and streak. Previous, precious, fuchsia, via, Pipe, snipe, recipe and choir, Cloven, oven, how and low, Script, receipt, shoe, poem, toe. Hear me say, devoid of trickery: Daughter, laughter and Terpsichore, Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles. Exiles, similes, reviles. Wholly, holly, signal, signing. Thames, examining, combining Scholar, vicar, and cigar, Solar, mica, war, and far. From "desire": desirable--admirable from "admire." Lumber, plumber, bier, but brier. Chatham, brougham, renown, but known. Knowledge, done, but gone and tone, One, anemone. Balmoral. Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel, Gertrude, German, wind, and mind. Scene, Melpomene, mankind, Tortoise, turquoise, chamois-leather, Reading, reading, heathen, heather. The phonetic labyrinth Gives moss, gross, brook, brooch, ninth, plinth. Billet does not end like ballet; Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet; Blood and flood are not like food, Nor is mould like should and would. Banquet is not nearly parquet, Which is said to rime with "darky." Viscous, Viscount, load, and broad. Toward, to forward, to reward. And your pronunciation's O.K., When you say correctly: croquet. Rounded, wounded, grieve, and sieve, Friend and fiend, alive, and live, Liberty, library, heave, and heaven, Rachel, ache, moustache, eleven, We say hallowed, but allowed, People, leopard, towed, but vowed. Mark the difference, moreover, Between mover, plover, Dover, Leeches, breeches, wise, precise, Chalice, but police, and lice. Camel, constable, unstable, Principle, disciple, label, Petal, penal, and canal, Wait, surmise, plait, promise, pal. Suit, suite, ruin, circuit, conduit, Rime with "shirk it" and "beyond it." But it is not hard to tell, Why it's pall, mall, but Pall Mall. Muscle, muscular, gaol, iron, Timber, climber, bullion, lion, Worm and storm, chaise, chaos, and chair, Senator, spectator, mayor, Ivy, privy, famous, clamour And enamour rime with hammer. Pussy, hussy, and possess, Desert, but dessert, address. Golf, wolf, countenance, lieutenants. Hoist, in lieu of flags, left pennants. River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb, Doll and roll and some and home. Stranger does not rime with anger. Neither does devour with clangour. http://vk.com/philochko - my VKONTAKTE http://www.facebook.com/drphilochko - my facebook page http://vk.com/beginenglish_ru - BEgin learning english
