语音现象解决听力问题:听辩音之吞音

吞音Reduced Sound

>Held sound of T

吞音1

If you have an N immediately after a T, you don’t pop the T—the tongue is in the T position—but you release the air with the N.

什么时候吞掉t音?t后面跟着一个n的鼻音,嘴型还是t的嘴型,但是不发出t音,只念出n的音。

单词例子:

  • certain
  • mountain
  • fountain
  • important
  • written
  • sentence
  • bellybutton
  • curtain
  • eaten
  • threaten
  • frighten
  • mutant

句子例子:

吞音2
  • Visiting Cupertino in July is a certain thing.
  • It is a very important farewell address.
  • A marine sniper has threatened me.
  • The hikers went into the mountains.
  • Martin has gotten a kitten.
  • He has not forgotten what was written about the mutant on the mountain.

第2种吞音的现象,是在铺音之前的t被吞掉。

>T before a consonant

吞音3

If a T sound word is followed by a word with a consonant sound, T will be reduced.

例子:

  • it was
  • that was
  • what was
  • just forgot the time

和上面的语音现象相同,辅音前的t会被吞掉。句末的t也会被吞掉。

>Silent T

  • She hit the hot hut with her hat.
  • We went to that Netsite to get what we needed.
  • Pat was quite right, wasn’t she?
  • What? Put my hat back!
  • hot, late, fat, goat, hit, put, not, hurt, what, set, paint, wait, sit, dirt, note, fit, lot, light, suit, point, incident, tight

两个辅音在单词末尾和后面单词开头相遇,同音或相同字母,前面的音会被吞掉。

>Reduced Repeated sound

吞音4

If the last syllable of a word and the first syllable of the other word that follows are the same, reduce the syllable of the first word.

例子:

  • it takes me
  • bus schedule
  • with them
