The most commonly mispronounced English words/最普遍會發音錯誤的英文字 (中英對照 精華文章)




是否曾經因某一個單字而困惑過?當你正在和以英文為母語的人士說話時,那個人卻不知道你在說什麼?當他們最後搞清楚你在說什麼的時候,他們會重複你說的話然後你才意識到,"那就是我想要表達的!"

英文有時候會因為些微的發音不同而使單字的意思完全改變。因此使用這個易於發音錯誤單字表來避免別人的誤解!


Limb / Limp:注意這寫當中的末篇信中!limb就是你的手臂,腿,或是數木的主要枝幹及"b"不需發音。當你的腿或腳受傷時,你會limp。這時"p"就要發音。


Said / Set:明確"d"和"t"的發音。Said是動詞to say(說話或發言)的過去時態 Set一個動詞可以是'準備好'或'明確的定位'。例如I said I would set the table.

Zen / Then: 這裡練習"z" 和"th" 的發音。Zen宗教冥思的一種形式。Then是指在那時,在那以後,活那樣的話。例如I went to a class about Zen, then I went home.

Loose / Lose:要非常注意一下最後的發音"s"及"z"。Loose 以濁音的"s"結束和意思是'鬆的'。當你lose某些東西你找不到。強調一下"z"音在lose上。例如 My ring is loose,
I'm afraid I'll lose it.

Statue / Stature: 請注意一下結尾!statue是一個很大的人形或動物雕塑品及聽起來像""

Quite / Quiet / Quit:這三個單字並不像他們看起來的那麼難!只要注意原音部分就好。Quite聽起來像"kwite" 而且常用来强调-指完全,真的和在某个程度上(I'm quite alone, I'm quite sure)。 Quiet (kwi-et)意思是沒有雜音-像在圖書館。Quit(kwit)意思是停止放棄或者離開。例如I quit
playing loud music and now it's quite quiet.





Ever get stuck on a word? You're talking to a native English speaker, you say something, and the person just doesn't understand? When they finally figure it out, they repeat the word back and you think, "But that's exactly what I said!"





English is known for some subtle pronunciation differences that can completely change a word's meaning. Use this list of easily mispronounced words to avoid misunderstandings!


Limb / Limp: Watch out for the last letter on these! A limb is your arm, leg, or the main branch of a tree and the "b" is silent. You limp when you've hurt your leg or foot. The "p" is pronounced.


Said / Set: Be sure to clearly pronounce the "d" and "t". Said is the past tense of the verb to say (to speak or utter). Set is a verb which can mean 'to make ready' or 'put in a specified position'. E.g. I said I would set the table.

Zen / Then: Practice pronouncing "z" and "th" here. Zen is a form of meditation. Then is an adverb meaning 'at that time', 'after that', or 'in that case'. E.g I went to a class about Zen, then I went home.

Loose / Lose: Pay close attention to the final "s" and "z" sounds. Loose ends with an soft "s" sound and means 'not tight'. When you lose something you can't find it. Emphasize the "z" in lose. E.g. My ring is loose, I'm afraid I'll lose it.

Statue / Stature: Watch out for the endings! A statue is a large sculpture of a human or animal and sounds like "chew" at the end. Stature refers to someone's height or their power and reputation. The end sounds more like "chur." e.g. We honor historical figures of great stature with statues.

Quite / Quiet / Quit: These three words aren't as difficult as they look! Just pay attention to the vowel sounds. Quite sounds like "kwite" and is often used to emphasize - it can mean 'completely', 'really', and 'to a degree' (I'm quite alone, I'm quite sure). Quiet (kwi-et) means 'little noise' ?like a library. Quit (kwit) means 'to cease', 'to give up' or 'to leave'. e.g. I quit playing loud music and now it's quite quiet.
