Session 5 - Tim's pronunciation workshop

Linking /r/
Words that end with an /ɔː/ sound are often pronounced with an /r/ sound at the end, which links to the next word if that word begins with a vowel sound. Some examples of phrases where this might happen include:

  • Can somebody call for an ambulance?
  • I haven't read War and Peace.
  • You've got something in your eye.
