- Hello everyone, welcome
back to English with Lucy.

Today is a video that can be appropriate
for both native speakers,
all you people who have
English as a mother tongue,

and also non-native speakers,
people who are learning

English as a second or as
an additional language.

It might be your third language.
I know some of you are completely crazy
and are on your seventh language.
Comment down below and tell me
how many languages you speak.

I'm going to talk to you
about words that are hard to pronounce.
There will be 20 words in total
and it's going to be a bit of
a tongue twister even for me.

I love doing these pronunciation videos.
I've done a couple before.
I did one on commonly mispronounced words
by non-native speakers,
the 10 words that you might
pronounce incorrectly,

which you can watch by clicking here.
And also 10 words that native speakers
might pronounce incorrectly as well,
and you can click here
as well to see that.

Yep, these videos have
been really, really popular

and whenever I ask you guys
what kind of videos you'd
like to see, you want to see

pronunciation videos of
commonly mispronounced words.

So here it is!
Before we get started,
this video is very kindly
sponsored by Lingoda,

the company that I've been
working with for ages.

If you don't know about Lingoda,
it's an online language academy.
You can learn French,
Spanish, English, or German

with real native teachers in
both private and group lessons.

If you want to see a review
I did of the platform

then you can click here.
And that's a full review of Lingoda.
And they've very kindly
given me a discount for that.

It's 50 euros, or 50 US dollars,
off your first month at Lingoda.
It's a great offer.
Don't miss out.
You can claim that by clicking on the link
in the description box and
using the code ENGLUCY5.

The code is also in the
description box, don't worry.

Right, let's get started with the video.
Now the first word I want to
talk to you about is this one.

How do you saw it?
Go on, give it a go.
The word is choir.
The next word, number two, is this one.
It's difficult because we've
got the er sound twice.

Rural, rural.
(mumbles), it doesn't
sound nice when I say it.

Now the next one, number three,
is actually a place name.

It's a county in the UK.
Is Worcestershire.
So people want to say
Worcestershire, or Worcestershire,

but it should be woosta,
woosta, Worcestershire.

How do we pronounce, and that
brings me on to my next one,

number four, which is this.
Is it shire, is it shire, or is it shire?
The answer is it can be all of them.
Officially it should be shire, or shire,
but a lot of people blend
the two and say shire.

That's what my family and I say.
We're from Bedfordshire.
I'm living in Cambridgeshire.
The next one, number
five, is prelude, prelude.

A lot of people want to
say prelude, or prelude,

but it should be prelude.
The next one, number six,
are we on number six?

The next one, number six,
is a word that most
native people will know

but when I was teaching Spaniards English
they never knew how to pronounce it
because it's quite a complicated spelling.
It's this one.
How do we say it?
It's squirrel, squirrel.
And that irrel, irrel,
people with Chinese as
their mother tongue,

that might be a really difficult one
because ir and ul often get confused.
So squirrel, squirrel.
Two syllables there.
The next one, number seven.
This one.
We've got that er sound again.
Juror, juror.
Also people suffer with
the juror, er sound.

It's a very complicated mouth movement
that you have to make.
I almost stick my chin when I say it.
Juror, juror.
Beautiful angle there.
The next one, number eight.
Spherical, spherical.
It's a very satisfying
one to say, isn't it?

A lot of people say spherical
because we have a sphere
and a sphere is spherical.

But it should be eh, not ir, eh.
Number nine, this one.
Frenchies, where are you,
because this one is yours.

Valet, valet.
But you will hear some
people saying valet, valet.

That pronunciation is
accepted by some dictionaries

but come on, guys.
Let's say valet.
Number 10, pronunciation.
Now this one is a really common mistake.
Pronunciation, how you
pronounce something.

A lot of people will say pronunciation.
Sometimes I get accused of
saying pronunciation in my videos

but really it is just my accent.
Pronunciation, nunciation.
I say it so quickly and
people like to pick at me

and wait for me to make a mistake
because I'm meant to be
correct all the time.

Number 11.
This one I've heard so many
different pronunciations

that I honestly before
researching this video

didn't know which one was right.
It should be mauve, mauve.
Many people will say mauve or mauve
but it should be mauve.
The next one, number 12.
Regime, regime.
Which one should it be?
It should be regime.
I've got a new regime.
The next one, number 13, is this one.
Now because it comes from French
it should be pronounced niche with a shh,
a soft shh sound at the end, unvoiced.
But many people will pronounce it niche,
which sounds so ugly compared to niche,
which is so beautiful
and airy and breathy,

and then niche.
Yes, niche!
The next one, number 14,
is more a confusion between two words.
It's moot, moot.
It's a matter about which
there may be discussion or confusion
but people generally confuse it with mute,
which means silent, not
speaking, not making a noise.

Moot, mute.
The next one, this one.
You might ask for a nice beer.
It's draught.
I used to work in a pub
and I heard people ask for a
draught beer a couple of times,

but it's a draught, draught beer.
Number 16, this one.
Yes, in my lifetime I have
heard someone say albeit.

And I was thinking albeit?
What do they mean?
Turns out it's albeit, albeit.
The next one, and this is one
that my Italian ex-flatmate

used to pronounce
incorrectly all the time.

He used to say lettuce.
"Lettuce in the house!"
No, it's lettuce, lettuce.
Yeah, confusing spelling there.
The next one,
a word that you might not
use in everyday conversation,

but it's an interesting one
because it's such a bizarre

spelling and pronunciation difference,
colonel, not colonel.
Why, why?
I'm sure there's a fabulous
reason behind it, actually.

(electronic notification)
I just researched it.
It was colonel and then colonel
and that's where the modern
pronunciation came from.

Colonel, just a squashed
up version of colonel.

The next one, number 19,
is another place name

and this one is important
because we have GMT.

I hear a lot of people saying Greenwich
and I can totally understand
why you would say that,

because reading it,
Greenwich, it makes sense.

But no, it's Greenwich, Greenwich.
The next one, infamous.
I've heard a couple of
people pronounce it infamous,

which is incorrect.
Number 20, this one.
I used to pronounce this incorrectly.
This one is gauge,
but it looks like it
should be pronounced gorg.

But no, it's gauge.
You're gorg, this is gauge.
Gorgeous, you all look gorgeous.
That's it for today's video.
Thank you so much to Lingoda
for sponsoring the video

and making this all happen.
Don't forget to check out the
link in the description box

and use the code ENGLUCY5
to gain your 50-euro or
50-US-dollars discount

off your first month at Lingoda.
Loads and loads of
lucifors have tried it out

and they're really, really happy.
I don't think I've ever heard
a negative comment about it, actually.
Don't forget to connect with
me on all of my social media.

I've got my Facebook, my
Instagram, and my Twitter.

And I will see you soon
for another lesson.
