  • In this American English pronunciation video, we're going to go over the pronunciation of

  • the word 'university'.

  • This week's Word of the Week is 'university'. 'University' is a five-syllable word with

  • secondary stress on the first syllable, and primary stress on the third syllable. U-ni-ver-si-ty.

  • University. It begins with the 'ju' diphthong, uni-, uni-. Then we have the N consonant sound

  • and the schwa in the second syllable, which is unstressed. So, the tongue tip will go

  • to the roof of the mouth for the N, uni-, uni-. Then we have the stressed syllable -ver-.

  • It begins with the V consonant sound, so the bottom lip will come and make contact with

  • the bottom of the top front teeth, vv, vv. Univer-. The vowel sound is the UR as in HER

  • vowel, -ver-, -ver-, so you don't need much jaw drop for that. The tongue will pull back,

  • and make contact here with the roof of the mouth, or the insides of the teeth. Univer-sity.

  • Then we have two unstressed syllables that will be flat, lower in pitch and volume, -sity,

  • sity. I want to point out, we have a T here between two vowel sounds. That means it's

  • going to be a flap, not a True T, -sity, -sity, -sity. University. University.

  • He teaches at New York University.

  • That's it, your Word of the Week. Try it out yourself. Make up a sentence with the

  • word, record it, and post it as a video response to this video on YouTube. I can't wait to

  • watch it.

  • That's it, and thanks so much for using Rachel's English.
