Nel caso di “think”, perché la lingua si inserisce tra i denti, il suono dovrebbe essere liscio mentre “mother”, suona più come una ‘d’ leggera. Gli italiani spesso applicano quest’ultimo in tutti i casi ma non è una buona pratica.
Fai un esercizio di pronuncia e vedi se riesci a indovinare i suoni corretti per queste parole:
Qual è la differenza tra "22 febbraio 2003"e "22/02/2003"
Gli inglesi hanno due modi per pronunciare la data:
1) articolo+ numero ordinale + mese = “The twenty second of February.”
2)mese + numero ordinale = “February 22nd”.
Quando dovresti sostituire un anno con un numero?
Esiste anche una certa confusione su come pronunciare gli anni. Gli studenti spesso non sono sicuri se diciamo il numero completo o se dovremmo dividerlo in due coppie.
Le possibilità sono:
1) Dividere in due coppie = “We’re intwenty twenty one” = 2021
2) Numero intero = “The year two thousand and twenty one” = 2021 (nota l'uso di 'and' in questa struttura).
Quest'ultimo è più comunemente usato nell'inglese americano.
In conversazione invece, l'anno dovrebbe essere sostituito con un numero solo quando è l'unico modo per riferirsi all'ora. Quindi,"Mia sorella è nata nel 1994"sarebbe stata scritta come "Mia sorella è nata nel'94".
