English words can be really confusing sometimes.
In these how-to-pronounce episodes published on Fridays, I’ll help you with the pronunciation of confusing words and common names.
This week we’re going to talk about the words ‘serious’ and ‘series’.
Here’s a loose transcription of the words as explained in the episode:
serious: si-ɹee-uhs [IPA:], or si-ɹee-y’s in connected speech
