一、连读技巧
 
1. 字尾辅音+字首元音 “异性相吸”
    在意思密切相关的一组词中,如果前一个词以辅音结尾,后一个词以元音开头,这两个词有时可以连起来读,这种现象叫连读。用符号“”表示。               
    I’ll be back-in half-an-hour.  我半小时就回来。
       Take-a look-at-it.                   看一看吧。
 
       A: I have a cold.
       B: Take care of yourself.
 
2. 字尾r+字首元音
    单词末尾有字母“r”或“re”的词,在短语或句子中和以字首元音开始的词相邻时,在英语中“r”也要读出音来,语美语一样和后面的元音连读。
 
       Far away 
      My friend comes from a country far-away. 
 
      For ever 
      I will keep my promise for-ever.   
 
      There are 
      There are a lot of problems in the world. 
      There are over 600,000 kinds of insects in the world. 
      There is no school today.
 
二、略音技巧
 
1)辅音+辅音——同性相斥
    I don’t-know what-to do. 
       I need-some-more money. 
       I’d-like-to try on that-shirt. 
       What-time is our flight-tomorrow
 
2)同类爆破+同类爆破 
       相同的两个爆破音相邻时,第一个爆破音省略,只读后面的一个爆破音。
        Part time 
       She’s looking for a part-time job.
             
        Take care 
       Please take care of yourself.
       Take care not to break any glasses.
       I’ll take-care-of the problem.
       <略音和连音同时出现>
 
3)异类爆破+异类爆破 
       类似的辅音如:[t] –[d][d]--[t][k]-- [g][p]--[b]出现时,同样省前读后
 
       What do you think?
       Sorry, I wasn’t listening.
 
       The boss has always been very good to her.    
       We had a good time together.    
       You’d better get up a little earlier.
 
4略音    
    在以[t][d][k][g][p][b]+以辅音开始的单词时,前面的辅音发音顿息,舌头达到发音部位“点到为止”,但不送气!在正常速度或快速的对话中,字尾有[t][d]时通常不会把[t][d]的发音清楚地念出来,而是快要念出来时,马上憋气顿息,因此字尾[d][t]的发音
常常是听不到的。   
   Let me try it.
 
       Maybe he’d like to be alone now.
       I think so too.
 
       I might be getting a big raise this month.
       Not a chance.
 
       Is it going to rain tomorrow?
       I hope not. I want to go to the beach.
 
三、咬舌头
 
      把舌头轻轻放在上下牙齿的中间。
      I thought a thought but the thought I thought wasn’t the thought I    thought I thought -----9次舌
    
     There are thirty-three thousand three hundred and thirty-three feathers on that thrush’s throat. -------11次舌头
 
     It’s the same thing.
    
This is better than that.
     They’ve been there for more than three mouths.
     The rumor passed from mouth to mouth.
