Accent Reduction- Get Inspired to Master These English Speech Sounds


Here is some information about the English language which will give you inspiration for mastering particular sounds:

  1. The most frequently spoken consonant is “n.”
  2. The “e” is the most commonly used letter in the English language. Furthermore, as many as one in eight of all the letters written in English is “e.”   Why are there so many letter “e”s.  Remember, we have words with silent “e”s  (cake, wade), digraphs (beat, meet), and many prefixes and suffixes are spelled with an “e” (delightful, planted, basement).
  3. More English words begin with the letter “s” than any other letter of the alphabet.
  4. The following sentence contains seven different spellings of the speech sound, the American long vowel “e”: He believed Caesar could see people seizing the seas.
  5. “Pronunciation” is one of the words most frequently mispronounced in the English language. That’s because the verb is “pronounce” and people use that  “ou” as in “ow” instead of the American short vowel “u.”
