English Pronunciation – How to Say ‘wor’ Words Correctly

 

Often students can become quite confused about how to pronounce words spelled with ‘wor’, and especially the word ‘work.’ Because of the ‘or’, they often say ‘walk’ for ‘work.’

Check out this training video and find out about the ‘wor’ rule.

‘Wor’ Words
work
worst
worth
word
worm
worse

Exceptions

In these exceptions the ‘or’ does say ‘or’:

wore, worn, wort, swore

 

Note:

In American English the ‘or’ in the words ‘worry’ or ‘worries’ also says ‘er’ 

  worry said: ‘werry’     werries said: ‘werries’

For British and Australian English in the the word worry, the OR says ‘u’     

worry said: ‘wurry’

 

You can also find more words to practise in an audio training lesson I made earlier here.

Best wishes, Esther
