  • Hi guys! Welcome back to English with Max.

    大家好!歡迎回到 English with Max。

  • Today I'm doing a video on words that you might be saying incorrectly. Who knows?


  • Maybe you already know how to say all of these words. Or maybe you just have difficulties with one or two of them.


  • In any case, please let me know down in the comments. Are they easy?


  • Or do you struggle with some of them?


  • I should also remind you that I'm Australian. Some people have been asking me about my accent.


  • It is an Australian accent, but it is not a typical or a strong Australian accent. It's


  • quite a "neutral" accent, so to speak. So my pronunciation is very close to British


  • pronunciation. However, if I think that the American pronunciation is rather different,


  • I will try to point it out to you.


  • OK, the first word is "pronunciation."


  • I know this is confusing because the verb is "pronounce." So there is an "o" before


  • the "u." But in the noun, there is no "o" in that position. So we have "pronunciation"

    在「u」的前面。但名詞的話,在那個位置沒有 「o」 ,所以是「pronunciation」

  • and not "pronounciation."

    而不是 「pronounciation」。

  • The second word is "country." Some people get this wrong because there's an "o" in front


  • of the "u", so some people will pronounce it "cownt-ry" or "contry." But, and this is

    在「u」的前面,所以有的人會念成「cownt-ry」或 「contry」。但,影片這邊

  • where the video gets a little bit R-rated - I'll just cover Frank's ears -


  • the first part of the word is actually pronounced like this "cunt." "Cunt" is also known as the "C word"


  • in English, because it is considered by most people to be the strongest swear word


  • in the English language. Now, I don't recommend that you use this word,


  • because you could easily offend not only the person you're talking to, but also the people


  • around you. However, if it helps you to remember the pronunciation of "country", that's awesome.


  • Some people pronounce the "t" quite clearly, so they will say "counTry",

    有的人會把「t」 念得特別清楚,所以會念成「counTry」,

  • whereas other people say it more like a "ch". So they say "counCHry." "CounTry" or "counCHry" -

    然而有的人會念得像「ch」,所以會變成 「counCHry」、 「CounTry」或「counCHry」-

  • either one is correct.


  • Speaking of countries, the third word is "Australia."


  • It's very important, isn't it, Frank?


  • Lots of people pronounce the second "a" as an "uh", so they will say "Austruhlia".


  • But you have to remember that the second "a" is just like the "ay" in "day". So we say: Australia.

    但是你要記得,第二個 「a」的音和 「day」中的 「ay」一樣。所以要念: Australia.

  • The fourth word is "series."


  • Some people try to add an additional vowel sound in there. So they'll say something like


  • "ser-i-ehs", but you have to remember that there are only two syllables in this word,


  • so it is "se-ries." What also confuses some people is that there is an "s" at the end.

    所以是 「se-ries」。容易搞混人的是,結尾有一個 「s」 。

  • And normally in English, if there is an "s" at the end of a noun, it is, of course, plural.

    然後通常英文中,如果名詞結尾有個 「s」,當然一定是複數。

  • But "series" has an "s" whether it's plural or singular. So you can say: "That is my favourite series."

    但 「 series」的單複數都有個「s」,所以你可以說:「那是我最喜歡的影集。」

  • The next word is: chaos.


  • This isn't pronounced "cah-os" or "chay-os". This is "chaos".

    它不是念 「cah-os」或 「chay-os」,而是 「chaos」。

  • The sixth word is: thermometer. What's a thermometer? This is a thermometer. We use it to check


  • people's temperature when they are sick to see if they have a fever.


  • Do you have a fever, Frank? Of course, you don't have to just put it in the mouth, you


  • can put it in other places.


  • Even really advanced speakers of English sometimes get this word wrong. It's normally the stress


  • that they will get wrong. The stress is the weight that you put on a syllable.


  • So I've heard people say "THERmo-meter", instead of "thermOmeter". "Thermometer" is the British


  • pronunciation, and the American pronunciation is "thermometer".


  • The next word is also often used in a medical context. This word is: syringe. This is a syringe.


  • Be careful of the "y" in this word. It's not pronounced "sai-ringe", it is "syringe".

    小心這個字裡的「y」,它是不發音的,不是念 「sai-ringe」,而是「syringe」。

  • Word number 8 is: ocean. Yes, this is quite a simple word, but I think because the word


  • is very similar in other languages, some people try to say it in a way that they would probably


  • say it in their language. So sometimes you hear "osayahn". Remember that this word is "ocean".


  • The next word is: Italian. Some of you might be thinking: "How is that hard?"

    下一個字是: Italian(義大利人),有的人可能認為:「這有什麼難的?」

  • But lots of people actually pronounce the second vowel, so the first "a", as an "uh" instead of "a".

    但是許多人其實把第二個母音,也就是第一個 「a」念成「uh」,而不是念「a」。

  • So they say "Ituhlian". But just remember that it's "Italian". Some native speakers

    所以念成 「Ituhlian」,但記住其實是「Italian」。有的母語人士

  • do say "Aitalian", but it's much more common to say "Italian".


  • And the last word for today, and we've already heard it when I was talking about the thermometer,


  • is: temperature. In British English, we pretend that the second "e" isn't there. We say "temprature".

    也就是:temperature(溫度)。在英式英文中,會假裝第二個「e」 不存在,所以會念成「temprature」。

  • In American English you have a choice. Some Americans say "temprature" and some say "temperature".

    而在美式英文中.有不同的選擇,有的美國人念「temprature」 ,有的會念「temperature」。

  • In any case, in American English you pronounce the "r" at the end of the word.

    不管怎樣,美式英文在這個字的字尾念 「r」 的音。

  • That is it, ladies and gentlemen. How did you go? Have you been saying these words right?


  • Let me know in the comments section down below. Please also give me a thumbs up if you liked


  • the video, and don't forget to subscribe if you want to be updated on more videos.


  • You can also contact me at my Facebook page, on Twitter, and I also recently got Instagram.


  • See ya next time!


  • You gonna say bye, Frank?

    你也想說聲拜嗎, Frank?

  • Bye bye.
