    Question exercise

    can you explain the different meaning of "exercise"?
    exercise is equal to sport?

    do exercise or do exercises? what's the difference?

    exercises and its phonetic transcript?

    Re: exercise

    Exercise doesn't have to be sport- I can go for a walk to get some exercise, but I wouldn't call it sport. In the singular, we are thinking about physical activity, but in the plural, we are thinking about different specific types of exercise, as in a gymnastic routine. Your transcriptions fine- stress the third syllable.
