  • "What's new?" Has anyone ever said that to you before? And you don't understand what

    "What's new?" 有人這樣問過你嗎? 而你不知道他們是什麼意思?

  • they've said to you? "What's new?" New York. New Jersey. No, "what's new?" is another way

    "What's new?" 紐約,紐澤西。

  • of saying, "Hello. How are you?"

    "What's new?" 是另一個說「嗨,近來好嗎?」 的說法

  • And my name's Ronnie. Today, I'm going to teach you about the letter "N", written like


  • this in the capital. Hah! Where's my marker gone? It's disappeared. Written in the smaller

    這個字就是n的大寫。我的麥克筆呢? 他不見了。

  • sense, it is like this "n."


  • So, a lot of people have difficulty pronouncing the letter "N". This lesson is for Rick. Rick,

    那許多人在發"N"這個 音上面有問題。這堂課是特別為Rick開的。

  • you typed in a beautiful comment and said, "Ronnie, I cannot pronounce the letter "N"


  • properly. Can you help me?" And I said, "Sure, Rick." This lesson's for you.

    我說"當然可以啊,Rick." 這堂課是特別為你開的。

  • Today's lesson is "n" as in "knew" Hah! What's this? What is a dirty little "k" doing here

    今天的課程是"knew" 裡面的字母"n" 。這是什麼? 這個小k怎麼會出現在"n"前面?

  • in front of the "n"? Did you know that in English, if you have the "kn" like this, the


  • "k" - shhh -- is silent. So this word "knew" is the exact same pronunciation, as this word

    這個"k" -噓噓噓 --是不發音的。所以"knew"的發音,

  • "new". Shocking, I know.

    跟"new" 一模一樣。 很令人震驚吧,我懂。

  • So if I take my magic red marker, and all of a sudden, this will make sense to you,


  • with the "kn" sound, the delightful little "k," you don't say it, it's silent. Don't


  • say it. Don't ever say it like "canoe"; "canoe" is like the boat that you row. Mm-mm, so when

    千萬別把它發出音來。 千萬別把他唸成"canoe"; "canoe" 是一種你划的船(獨木舟)。

  • we say this word it's the exact same word, as this word, "knew" - "new"


  • Now when you want to say the "n" word! Hah! The "n-word" -- I would never say that. What

    那當你想要說"n"這個字! 哈! The "n-word" --我永遠不會這樣說。

  • you want to do is you want to put your tongue, huh, at the top of your mouth. And it has


  • to be spread across your mouth and hitting the back of your teeth. So, your whole tongue


  • is going to cover all of the top of your mouth, and you're going to press your tongue up and


  • go "n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n".

    然後就可以發出 "n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n".

  • The "n-n-n-n-n-n" sound is voiced. That means if you put your hands here, it vibrates. So,


  • if you go "n-n-n-n-n", "n-n-n-n-n", it's easily confused with the "m-m-m-m-m", with the "M"


  • sound. The difference, "n-n-n-n-n", is that your mouth is open and your tongue is all


  • the way up, pressed against the top of your mouth for the "N".


  • With the "M" sound, your mouth is closed. Your mouth is closed, "m-m-m-m-m", and your


  • tongue is in the middle of your mouth. So, "n-n-n-n-n" and "m-m-m-m-m"; so now you have

    而且你的舌頭會位在你口腔的正中央。"n-n-n-n-n" 跟"m-m-m-m-m"

  • the "n-n-n-n-n" pronunciation, that's cool.


  • This word again, because it's a "k" and an "n" together, and a "w." What's happened here?


  • English is strange. This word is actually the exact same word as "no." So the difference


  • in meaning - you guys might know the difference; "know" means to understand. And this "no"

    所以他們的差異其實是在意義上-你們可能已經知道他們的不同了; "know"代表知道

  • means negative. So, "I know" the spelling is like this. But, "no" there're no silent letters.

    而"NO"是否定的意思。所以"I know"的拼法是這樣的,而"NO"裡面沒有不發音的字母。

  • This word "knew" is the past tense of "know." So you can say, "I knew that, Ronnie." This

    "knew"是"know"的過去式。所以你可以說 "I knew that, Ronnie"。

  • word "new" means it's not old. Okay, so "new" is the opposite of old.

    "new"的意思是它不是舊的,所以 "new"是舊的的相反。

  • We're going to go on to some other "n" words to help you study your pronunciation. So with

    我們現在要來學習其他有 "n"的詞彙以練習發音。

  • your tongue at the roof of your mouth you say "n-n-never", "n-n-never". Then you have


  • the word "n-n-now", "now". It rhymes with the word "cow" - now, cow "n-never", "now".

    那你也能說出 "n-n-now"了, "now"。 "now"跟"cow"押韻-now, cow。 "n-never", "now"。

  • The magic twist, sometimes you want to twist your neck and it makes a cracking sound. This


  • part of your body is called your "neck". Sometimes you have a sore "neck" because you're watching


  • too many YouTube videos. It's all right. Just give it a crack, and you'll be fine, and "neck".


  • And the word "night" there's also another "kn" spelling for this. It is exactly the

    "neck" 跟"night" ,"kn"也能和這兩個字做搭配。他們的發音一模一樣,

  • same pronunciation, but this word "knight" means an old warrior that rode around on horseback.


  • So, you will see medieval knights or Knights of the Round Table, if you're into knighting.


  • The pronunciation is the same. The meaning is different. So you have to be very confused


  • about this "kn" thing, again, so a "knight" is basically a warrior from the olden times,


  • and "night" is the opposite of day.


  • There's another exception. If you go to the beautiful land of America or in some places


  • in Canada, and I'm sure the UK, you might see a word like this. And you go "'nite."


  • Oh, hah! Oh, oh, oh, hold on. That makes sense. The spelling makes sense there. Sometimes


  • Americans do it well.


  • This word is the exact same word as this one. They just don't mess around with all the extra


  • letters. So, this word is the same as this word "night". A difference in American and


  • British spelling. If you go to fast food restaurants or a lot of advertising, even in Canada you


  • will see this word written [informally].


  • There's one more I'd like to teach you, "knot" and "not." This "knot" again, the "k" is silent.

    還有一個東西我想教你,, "knot" 跟 "not"。 再一次的,"knot"的"k"是不發音的。

  • And it has the exact pronunciation as don't do it, "not." This "knot" is when you tie

    而它的發音跟意思是不要那樣做的 "not"是一樣的。"knot"打結的意思,

  • something together, doodle-loodle-loodle-loo, like your shoe, you make a "knot".


  • This "not" is again, a negative sentence saying, "I am not going to do that knot." Hm, so sometimes


  • they may appear in the same sentence. If you knew this already, but you need some refreshment,


  • have a beer. If you'd like to know more about the "n-n-n-n-n" pronunciation, try it now,


  • "un-n-n-n-n-til next time, goodbye.


"What's new?" Has anyone ever said that to you before? And you don't understand what

"What's new?" 有人這樣問過你嗎? 而你不知道他們是什麼意思?
