As a result, at least three bidders pushed the price to 665,000 with fees.

《法律与秩序:特殊受害者》(Law & Order: SVU):NBC频道的这部电视剧上一季中的危机仿佛是从肥皂剧中搬来,发生了各种大事,奥利维亚(Olivia,玛莉丝卡·哈吉塔[(Mariska Hargitay]饰)经历了许多危险——喜欢跟踪的变态强奸犯,折磨人的婚外恋,新生婴儿,现在这一切终于平息下来。在今年的第16季中,侦探们回到了重要的性犯罪上,其中一集的灵感来自雷·赖斯(Ray Rice),讲述的是从监控录像中看到一个著名体育广播员殴打自己的妻子。

Dan (from Better English) and I cover this sound a bit in our podcast, English Across the Pond and membership materials, noting that in American English, this sound is very pronounced and the “R” is heard very clearly. Imagine an American saying “water”, and imagine the difference in an English person saying “water” (wata). This post will obviously cover the details about the American English pronunciation.

Today’s 5 Minute English video lesson has 2 parts and will teach you some of the basics, help you learn how to make the sound, and give you plenty of examples and practice. Part 1 will cover the basics and teach you how the sound is made, while Part 2 will provide the examples. When you finish watching the video (don’t forget to take notes!) come back here and review the full blog post for more details, explanations, and examples.

Details about the “ER” Sound in English

Not to get too technical, sorry, but this combination of sounds is called a “murmur diphthong” which means that it’s a vowel + r combination sound. These combinations will change the sound of the vowel alone, and each combination produces only 1 sound. For example, the “ar” diphthong sounds like R (the letter – like car), and “or” sounds like the word OR (like born). The combinations “er”, “ir”, and “ur” all produce the same sound which is what we’re covering today, the “ER” sound. Take a quick note that the words “herd” “girl” and “burn” all have the same pronunciation in the center (er, ir, ur).

Let’s make sure you are producing the correct sound…

To make this “ER” sound correctly, you need to put your tongue and your lips to work! Both of these things, your tongue and lips, need to work together to accurately produce the sound. We’ll focus on the tongue first. To make this sound, you need to pull your tongue back and hold it high in your mouth. You should feel the sides of your tongue on your back top teeth. When you produce the sound it will move over your tongue, through your mouth and out your lips, which are out and slightly flared open (remember to watch the video to see these examples). A trick I learned in my speech pathology days is to practice saying the word “EAR”. This word starts with the long “E” vowel, like “eeee” and transitions to end with the sound “yer”.

高质量发展须严守生态底线

Start slowly, and first say “eeeee” (the long vowel sound). Next add the linking “y” sound and the ending “er”. This linking “y” sound (the first sound in the word “yellow” or “you”) is important to accurately produce the ending “ER” sound. So you should say “eeeyer”. As you say this slowly, notice and feel the changes happening in your mouth, with your tongue and teeth. Grab and mirror and watch the changes, too! Your tongue should pull back and squeeze tighter against your back teeth in the ending “ER”, much more than “eee”. Now, if you take away the “eee-y” sound then you are left with the correct ending “ER”. Repeat….repeat…repeat!

After you perfect the sound, it’s time to move onto words…

That's become a common refrain in Brazil - where the billions spent to build new or upgrade existing football stadiums both raised public ire about how the money was spent and has already caused ticket prices for Brazilian national soccer league matches to rise sharply. Some fans complain that's turned what were once affordable, raucous stadium experiences in Brazil into more costly and less spontaneous visits to storied stadiums like Rio's Maracana.
