I wonder how native speakers pronounce English words especially when pronouncing slowly ?
the word "anthropocentrism" :
1. The first way :
2. The second way :
I'm using the first way.
I'm being confused in the pronunciation of vowels, I think it is not much important (for almost of words).
Especially when listening the pronunciation that was pronounced fast, It seems there isn't much difference between the pronunciations of some vowels . For example: the "a" in "an" was pronounced differently to the "u" in "gun" , but when pronouncing fast, they seem to be the same.
I think the pronunciation of consonant is the most important to listen and know what word is pronounced.
Please give me some comments about this.
Thank you very much !
With "a/an", you're half right. When spoken, it frequently doesn't sound like "an" as in "pan", it comes out sounding more like "uh-n" (I can't find a better way to write it!) though that isn't the same sound as in "gun".
