English words can be really confusing sometimes.
In the how-to-pronounce episodes released every Friday, I’ll help you with the pronunciation of confusing or challenging words.
This week we’re going to talk about how to pronounce the triplet “except”, “accept”, and “expect”.
Here’s a loose transcription of the words as explained in the episode:
Except: ik-sept, or uhk-sept [IPA: ɪkˈsept]
Accept: ak-sept, or uhk-sept [IPA: əkˈsept]
Expect: ik-spekt [IPA: ɪkˈspekt]
