Module 2 ( phonetic links)


Recommended Posts

Hello minoo,

It’s been a great learning experience for me in Anglo link.

Coming to my query, I have a small doubt in the study part of the phonetic links.

When both  the preceding and the following words are the vowels, it is given that it is pronounced as semi vowel /j/, but when I was listening to that in the study section,  it is pronounced as /i/, but not /j/. 

Please help in this regard.

Hello Hari,

Thank you for your positive feedback. I'm really glad that you're enjoying your studies here.

Indeed, the /j/ link does not have to be strong, and can just be a prolongation of /i:/. However, as many nationalities tend to insert an intrusive /h/ and say  She /h/ is, it is necessary to create a strong semi-vowel link with /j/ to avoid the /h/ sound. When you don't have this problem, you naturally link the two vowel sounds.
