It is quite common for non-native speakers of English to mispronounce
English words. However, it is not something we have to be ashamed of,
but something we ought to understand. We have to get to the root/s of
the problems, in order for us to improve our pronunciation. Here are
some tips I hope could help you understand English pronunciation better.
The English word "really” is not pronounced as "re-a-li" or "re-a-lai", nor is the word "really” spelled as "rili”.
The Sounds of -ed
Keep in mind that it is not the spelling but the sound that is important. For instance, ‘wax” ends in x but the sound is /s/.
There are some exceptions though. The following words used as adjectives are pronounced with / Id/.
blessed, aged, ragged, wretched, naked, crooked
Two ways of pronouncing "the”
When used before a vowel sound, we say "the” as "thee”. Keep in mind that it is the sound we should listen to, not the letters themselves.
Ex. The apple is pronounced as "thee apple”.
The hour is pronounced as "thee hour”. (hour sounds like our)
When used before a consonant sound, we say "the” as "thuh”.
Ex. The graduates is pronounced as "thuh graduates”.
The university is pronounced as "thuh university”. (university sounds like yuniversity)
