  • In this American English pronunciation video, were going to go over the interesting pronunciation

  • of the wordinteresting’.

  • This word can be pronounced a couple of different ways. Thanks for the request for this video.

  • This word can be four or three syllalbles. If it’s four syllables, it can be pronounced

  • IN-te-res-ting. Interesting. Oh, that’s interesting. Or, as you know, Americans sometimes

  • drop the T after an N. So youll definitely hear it pronounced this way: IN-er-es-ting.

  • Interesting.

  • I pronounce it as just three syllables. And when we do that, we tend to change the T to

  • a CH sound. We do this with the TR cluster a lot, youve probably noticed. ‘Train

  • usually sounds more likechrain’.

  • As a three-syllable word, stress is still on the first syllable. DA-da-da. Interesting.

  • In. The IH as in SIT vowel. It can be difficult for non-native speakers. The tendency is to

  • make the EE vowel instead. EE-nteresting. Een. But it should bein’. It’s a little

  • more relaxed. Though the tongue position is similar, it’s not as close to the roof of

  • the mouth, ih, in-. Also, think of droping your jaw just a little bit more. Een-, in-.

  • So the tongue tip is forward, lightly touching the back of the bottom front teeth, while

  • the mid-front part arches up. But again, it doesn’t get too close to the roof of the

  • mouth, ih. For the N, the tongue tip goes to the roof of the mouth. In-ch. Now it’s

  • where it needs to be for the CH: at the roof of the mouth. We stop the air, and pull the

  • tongue back for the R, in-chr. Notice how the lips flare for the CH and the R. In-chr.

  • Now we have the schwa so the tongue relaxes forward again so the tip is down. I’m going

  • to show how the tongue moves in this word with my finger. Interesss. For the S, the

  • tongue tip is also down, and we push air through the teeth, ss. “Inchrusss.”

  • Now we have a True T, but it’s a little weak. It doesn’t start a stressed syllable,

  • so, (with hand), TT, the escape of air isn’t quite that strong. But the tongue does go

  • to the roof of the mouth and pull away. Interest-. Tt, tt, tt, a little burst of air. Interes-ting,

  • -ting. Now we have the IH vowel, but it does get a little tighter when it’s followed

  • by an NG. So, in this case, maybe you can think of it being like an EE vowel. –Ting,

  • interesting, -ting. It’s unstressed, so it should be fast, -ting. Back of the tongue

  • touches the roof of the mouth for the NG sound at the soft palate. Interesting.

  • Though I’ve taught you here with the CH sound, you can also just make a T sound: Interesting,

  • tt, tt, tt, interesting. I thinkinterestingwith the CH is a little easier, and little

  • more common.

  • Now youve learned the mechanics of how to make the word. Work on that for a little

  • while, and then forget it. Now, just do some listen and repeat with me.

  • In-chruh-sting.

  • Great, now let’s see this word up close and in slow motion.

  • Because of the position of the teeth, you can barely see the tongue move up for the

  • N. You can clearly see the flared lips for the CH and R. The lips come into a tighter

  • circle for the R. The corners relax out for the schwa and S. And you can’t even see

  • the last syllable because the jaw doesn’t really need to drop. Let’s watch again.

  • Because of the position of the teeth, you can barely see the tongue move up for the
