  • Recently a lesson was uploaded onthe most mispronounced words in English language

  • and I read through the comments and I realized, that there was one of the most motivated learners

  • who said that, that we seem to have missed a lot of other words as well, so thank you

  • very much for that comment, because this is part two and this lesson is entirely devoted

  • to you. In this lesson we are going to be talking about some of those words that we

  • seem to have missed, the last time because of the shortage of time, let's get started.

  • The first one in the list is, J-A-P-A-N, which is a nation, which is a country in the northeastern

  • part of the world, and a lot of people mispronounce it as in Japan, they literally go with the

  • spelling of the word, but it is not Japan, it is Japan. For example like you have a pan,

  • that you cook the gravy in, that you basically cook your vegetables in, you say /Juh-Pan/,

  • one more time, /Juh-Pan/. Next word S-E-C-O-N-D, after first what comes? First, second but

  • it gets mispronounced as second, second. But it is not right it is /sek-ind/ it is, sek-ind.

  • One more time, sek-ind. Next word is, truth. What is the opposite of false? The opposite

  • of false is, truth or truth? The soundoohere is a little stressed, when we speak the

  • word and it turns out to be /tr-oo-th/, please repeat after me truth, truth. It is not truth

  • it is truth. Next one opposite or opposite? If I am here then you are opposite me, so

  • how do we say the word? We actually stress on the first part of the word and that is

  • here, a lot of people pronounce it by stressing on the second part opposite. It is not opposite,

  • it is opposite. So we say /op-uh-zit/, one more time opposite not opposite. Next one

  • is the place that one stands, for example my position is towards the left hand side

  • of the board to you. So what is it position or position? Position a lot of people misunderstand

  • the ‘Z’ sound with ‘G’, which is wrong and we say /puh-zi-shan/, one more time /puh-zi-shan/,

  • position. We also do not say, position, Po we saypuh’, position. The next word

  • is, what you respond to a question, how do you respond and give the response to a question?

  • By giving the answer. But sometimes people pronounce, pronounce the ‘w’ sound in

  • an exaggerated manner, and they say answer, wer, wer, not right, it is, /aan-suh/, one

  • more time, it is answer, answer, not ans-wer. Next is, example, and it gets mispronounced

  • as example or example. It is not exam, example, it is example, so /ig-zam-pl/ please repeat

  • after me, ‘ig’, it starts withignoteg’, example, example. Next word,

  • especially or especially? The first one is right. So something that is quite special

  • to you, for example what is quite special to me? These video lessons are quite special

  • to me and I especially make them for you guys. Especially or especially? It is, ‘is

  • we start it withis’ ‘shali’ ‘pe-shali’ /is-pe-shali/ especially, especially. Next

  • word in the list of the most pronounced, mispronounced words is, ‘cabinyou have an office,

  • and a family member or a friend comes to your office, you say, that's my cabin or cabin?

  • The rule is really simple, you have a cab, cab means a taxi, that's how we pronounce

  • it, and we write /ke-bin/ cabin we write cabin, we say cabin, not cabin, it is cab. The next

  • one in the list is pressure, do we say pressure? Or do we say pressure? Or do we say pressure?

  • It is pressure, /pre-sha/, please repeat after me, pressure. Let's look at the next word,

  • you go to a movie hall and to watch the film you need to show a snippet of a paper, what

  • is that paper called? It's called a ticket, but it is commonly mispronounced astiket’,

  • it is not tiket, it is /tik-it/, please repeat after me ticket. The next word, if you feel

  • bore, board and you don't want to do anything, but there is another emotion that is the opposite

  • of being bored, what is that called? This is the word and how do we pronounce it? Excite

  • or excite? It is, please repeat after me, ‘site’, /ek-site/, not excite, it is excite.

  • The next word is, in the olden times the, the kings and the queens used to have a big

  • sort of a something which they used to use to fight, what was that thing called? It's

  • called a sword. But how do we pronounce it? Is it sward, because it has ‘W’ in it?

  • Let's check it out. Please repeat after me, ‘aw-d’ /s-aw-d/ it is notswored’,

  • it is, sword. Let's look at the next one, enthusiasm and enthusiastic, enthusiastic

  • is a quality and adjective, enthusiasm is noun. So a person who is quite energetic,

  • who is always there to do things, that person is called an enthusiastic personality, but

  • how do we pronounce it? Let's break it down, /en-thu-zi-as-tik/ enthusiastic,

  • notenthuciastick’, sometimes people say. The next word that is similar to this

  • one is, enthusiasm and how do we pronounce it? Please repeat after me, /en-thu-zi-e-zm/

  • enthusiasm, enthusiasm. The next word is, is it end or is it end? Something that goes

  • that goes, that comes to an end basically, how do we pronounce that, end or end? Let's

  • have a look at it, it starts withehnotaathe other word isand’,

  • we're in who we use to describe two things in, in, in one common thing basically and

  • that is let's say, ‘the red and blue’, ‘andbut not, ‘the red end blue

  • but when something finishes we call itend’, it has come to an end. Next one is, a savory

  • or a sweet thing that you eat during the breakfast, or during evening snacks, what do you call

  • it? Is it biscut or is it Biskit? Thecuthere changes tokitand it becomes /bis-kit/,

  • one more time, biscuit. Let's look at the last three words, a businessman is, a businessman,

  • especially a person who has started his own company and has managed to establish that

  • as well, who do we call that person, who is that person? That person is entrepreneur,

  • what is it? Entrepreneur or entrepreneur? It is entrepreneur. Let's do it together,

  • /on-tra-preh-na/, let's do it together, entrepreneur, one more time, entrepreneur. The next word

  • is excuse or excuse? Let's have a look at

  • itooz’, ‘kyooz’, /iks-kyooz/, it does not start witheh’, it starts with

  • ik’, excuse me, excuse me please, not excuse me please. And finally we have a very

  • interesting word, you use it when you're not sure about something and how do you say that,

  • probably or probably? You put the stress on the first part of the word and you say, ‘pro

  • you don't saypro-bait is

  • /pro-buhb-li/, ‘b-li’ ‘uhb-lipro-buhb-li, probably, not probably, it is probably. This

  • brings us to the end of the second series of the most commonly mispronounced words.
