  • I’ve gotten a few questions recently about the wordare’. Specifically someone recently

    最近有些人問了我幾個關於"are"這個字的問題。有人特別問了

  • asked if they were hearing correctlyWhat you doing?” instead ofWhat are you doing?”

    他們聽到的“What you doing?”是否是正確的,而不是 “What are you doing?”

  • That is not grammatically correct, and a native speaker would not sayWhat you doing?”

    這就文法而言是錯的,而且以英語做為母語的人不會說“What you doing?”

  • However, a native speaker may reduce the wordareso much that a non-native speaker

    然而,以英語為母語的人士可能太常省略"are"這個字,以至於對非英語母語使用者來說,

  • would have problems hearing it. The wordarecan be reduced simply to the schwa/R sound,

    會有"are"字聽力的問題。"are"容易被弱化成中央元音"r",

  • er, er, er. So in this sentence, What are you doing?, you may very well hear whater,

    "er, er, er"。所以在這句"What are you doing?"裡,你可能會聽到"whater",

  • whater, whater you doing? Whater you doing? With the er very low in pitch and very fast.

    whater, whater you doing? Whater you doing?,伴隨著一個音調很低而且念得很快的"er"。

  • What are you doing? What are, what are, it sounds like the wordbutter’. Butter,

    What are you doing? What are, what are,聽起來跟奶油(butter)很像。

  • what are, what are you doing? Now that you know what youre listening for, see if you

    what are, what are you doing? 現在你知道該注意什麼了,試試看

  • can hear it in this sentence: What are you doing, what are you doing, what are you doing?

    註解

  • The wordareis often shortened in writing as well, as a contraction withyou’,

    書寫時也常把"are"跟其他字縮寫在一起,像是"you",

  • we’, orthey’. Theyre, for example. But it doesn’t have to be written as a contraction

    "we" 或 "they"。比如They’re。 但沒必要為了發這個短短的"er",

  • for it to be pronounced with this shortersound. Let’s look at a few more sentences

    而縮寫。來多看一些"are"

  • where the wordarecan be reduced. My cousins are coming tomorrow. My cousins are,

    都被弱化的句子。我的表親/堂親明天要來拜訪。My cousins "ㄜ",

  • my cousins are, My cousins are coming tomorrow. My cousins are coming tomorrow. The cookies

    註解

  • are good. The cookies are, are, the cookies are good. Where are the girls? Now here the

    註解

  • word before ends in the schwa/R sound, er, where er the girls? I would explain it as

    註解

  • a re-emphasizing of the er sound: Where er the girls? But in fast speech, it actually

    再次強調"er"的發音: Where "er" the girls? 但念快一點,就真的會

  • all blends together. Where are the girls? Where are the girls? So it sounds like the

    全混在一起。Where " " the girls? Where " " the girls? 所以聽起來像是

  • word are is being dropped. Where are the girls? And someone else asked about the wordare

    漏掉了"are"。Where " " the girls? 還有其他人除了問"are"之外,

  • and the wordwere’ – about them sounding the same when theyre both reduced. The

    也問了"were",如果兩個字都在弱化的情況下,聽起來幾乎相同。

  • wordwerewill always have that W sound at the beginning, so there is a difference

    註解

  • in the pronunciation of these words. Let’s look at an example sentence. The kids are

    註解

  • there. The kids er, er, er, just the R sound, the kids are there. The kids were there. The

    註解

  • kids ww, ww, were, were, the kids were there. The second one has that W sound in it. The

    註解

  • kids are there, the kids were there. The kids are there, the kids were there. Can you hear

    註解

  • the difference? Now that you know this concept of the reduced wordare’, try it out

    你能聽出哪裡不同嗎? 現在你學會弱化"are"的概念, 你說話的時候試試看。

  • in your speech. And listen for it when youre listening to native speakers. That’s it,

    然後你在聽以英語為母語的人士說話時,可以多留意。就這樣。

  • and thanks so much for using Rachel’s English.
