language and oral expression: Standard English (UKSE)

For me is VERY DIFFICULT to have an a British Accent, although I have a fluent English.
But today I learned a little of "standard english".

[Standard English: refers to whatever form of the English language is accepted as a national norm in an Anglophone country.]

So, one English which is accepted by the English-speaking countries.

We have two kind of english:

*FORMAL
*INFORMAL


language and oral expression~

Study of phonetics and phonology.

>>PHONOLOGY: sound emission.
>>PHONETICS: symbols that represent the sound.

In my class we started talking about vowels, consonants and syllables. first, my professor said that "In English always are one syllable that is more relevant than another "

For example: Oración ("prayer" in spanish)
In spanish this word have two O letters, the first "O" and the last "O" are equal to pronounce-->
ORACION
but in english NEVER is like that-->
WATER
("WO-TAH" in Spanish sound xD)

So yes, English and Spanish accent are very very different. BUT! There is an accent in Argentina, called "cordobés accent" that is very similar to the british accent.

#VOCAL CORDS/FOLDS ~ -folds is meaning "fold" (doblar in spanish :D)--> "doubling our tongue"-

My professor started to talk a bit about some consonants and vowels.

> d//t

d: is pronounced like an explosion (vocalization of the vocal cords (using tongue)
t: sound: air (makes no effort of the vocal cords)

>R
example: FORMAL.
if there is a vowel and the next letter is an R,that "R"is silent (no pronunciation)
For ex: "FO-MAL" not "FOR-MAL"

-then, in another cases there is a rotation of the "R".
ex:
ROSE --> (tongue: to pronounce this letter the tip of the tongue is positioned at the top of the mouth, in back.)
but in spanish the tongue don't make this movement (since the tip of the tongue is positioned at the level of the upper teeth)


>when pronounce or not the "R" (and some other consonants)

the "R" is pronounced when the following word begins with a vowel.
ex: CAR OF YOU.

"CAR" without a following vowel letter, the (R) is silent.("CAA" with long a), when the following word begins with a consonant is silent.
ex: "CAR VOCAB" ("CAA VOCAB" in spanish.p)

>Link

when are a CONSONANT >--< VOWEL , there is a link between those words.
ex: ADAM IS A CHEF.
ADAMISA CHEF

PETER AND...
PETERAND

>The silent "E"

ex:

-DANCE: when are many consonants or syllables the letter "e" is silent. (in spanish.p is "DANS-")
-HE: short letter or a single syllable "e" is pronounced like a "I" in spanish.

>a vowel between two consonants

a vowel between two consonants is pronounced like in spanish.
ex:
-DOT = "DOT"
-PIN = "PIN"

but this is altered when are another voice as the "e"
ex:
DOTE = "DOUTE" (spanish.p)
PINE = "PAIN" (spanish.p)

This was a very quick and simplified review!
