Eng­lish Accent- Pro­nounce 16 words end­ing in ‘ture’ AUDIO train­ing les­son

The suf­fix ‘ture’, is a com­mon word end­ing, and it’s impor­tant to know how to pro­nounce it for your Eng­lish accent. I’ve made train­ing lessons before about how to pro­nounce cer­tain word com­mon end­ings such as ‘tion‘, ‘al’ and ‘el’ ; ‘ly’; ‘ous’ , and this time for Eng­lish accent prac­tise, we’re going to prac­tise the ‘ture’ end­ing.

Eng­lish Accent – Amer­i­can

In Amer­i­can Eng­lish the com­mon end­ing ‘ture’ is said ‘cher’ /tʃɚ/. For exam­ple as in the word ‘pic­ture’ –  said as ‘pikch­er’/ˈpɪk.tʃɚ/.

The /r/ is pro­nounced.

The ‘er’ /ɚ/ at the end is the de-stressed ‘er’, and so is said short­er than the stressed ‘er’ vow­el such as in ‘bird’. (you will find a video train­ing les­son on this in our Amer­i­can accent online course).

Eng­lish Accent – British and Aus­tralian

In Stan­dard British Eng­lish and for the Aus­tralian accent, the com­mon end­ing ‘ture’ is said ‘chuh’ /tʃə/. So the word ‘pic­ture’ is said as ‘pikchuh’.  For exam­ple ‘pic­ture my’ becomes ‘pikchuh my’

The /r/ isn’t pro­nounced unless the fol­low­ing word begins with a vow­el. Then the /r/ is pro­nounced and becomes a ‘link­ing’ /r/. For exam­ple ‘pic­ture on’ becomes ‘pikcheron’.
