  • The word 'and'. It's a function word, and often not given much time in a sentence. In

  • fact, sometimes it's reduced simply to the NN sound, like in this sentence.

  • And I'm going to have my friends there, and we're going to relax and enjoy and have a good time.

  • I'm going to have my friends there, and we're going to relax and enjoy and have a good time.

  • So in this video, we'll focus on the word 'and'.

  • The word 'and' is a conjunction, and conjunctions

  • are function words. This means it will generally be unstressed in a sentence, and sometimes

  • even reduced. If you just say the word 'and' on its own, it is pronounced with the 'aa'

  • as in 'bat' vowel, the N consonant sound, and the D consonant. And. Now, when this 'aa'

  • vowel is followed by a nasal consonant (that would be N, M, or NG), the vowel sound does

  • change a little bit. There's an 'uh' kind of sound that happens between the vowel and

  • the consonant. Aa-uh-nnd. And. And. So the word, on its own, and. But, let's check out

  • the word 'and' in real conversation. And I'd like a side of bacon. And I'd like a side

  • of bacon. Did you notice how I didn't pronounce the D in the word 'and'? Let's listen again.

  • And I'd like a side of bacon. An'I'd, An'I'd. It's really important with function words,

  • especially when we reduce something, that we link them to the words that come around

  • them. An'I'd, an'I'd, an'I'd like. Let's look at another example. And then my bacon is nice

  • and thick. Nice n' thick. Did you notice how here I not only dropped the D, but I dropped

  • the vowel sound altogether. Nn, nn. Pretty much just the N consonant sound tying those

  • two words together. Let's look again. And then my bacon is nice and thick. The word 'and'

  • can reduce to an', or nn, also the schwa-N sound, uhn, as in this example.

  • He puts that on and then he puts this on.

  • He puts that on, and then he puts this on. So, the word

  • 'and' in everyday conversation will probably reduce to an' or simply nn. And it will link

  • to the words around it. Because it is unstressed, it will also be low in pitch and said very

  • quickly. Saying 'and' this way will smooth out speech and make it sound more natural.

  • Let's take a look at some more examples. My mom and I will be there. My mom'n, my mom'n,

  • my mom'n I, mom'n I, My mom and I will be there. I'm taking off Monday and Tuesday.

  • Monday'n, Monday'n, Monday and Tuesday. I'm taking off Monday and Tuesday. I'll take this

  • one and that one. This one'n, this one'n, I'll take this one and that one. And now it's

  • over. An'now, an', and now it's over. That's it, and thanks so much for using Rachel's

  • English. An'thanks, an'thanks, that's it, and thanks so much for using Rachel's English.
