你会正确地读以下单词么:feel, fool, heal, wheel, ...

你会正确地读以下词组 么:I am, s/he is, I always, too often, ...

如果你不会正确发音,那么你需要学习 连读规则;如果你能够正确发音,但不知道原因,那你更需要学习连读规则——

 

今天,我就模仿赵老湿,来讲一讲英语口语中的连读。
“连读”在英语中叫Word Connections,借用法语的词汇时叫Liaison,读音为[li'eizn]——在这里要多说一句:从法语中借来的词读音一般都比较怪,一定要先查字典再去读它,免得搞错,比如debut['deibju:]

连读的意义

连读是语调中非常重要的一个组成要素。而语调是让别人更好听懂、更好理解的重要途径——语调的正确,比发音的准确还要重要。因为语调涉及的内容太多,而且很难用文字来描述,所以在这里只讲连读。
可能有人会认为连读会造成别人的理解困难,他们认为:还是把单词一个挨一个地读清楚更容易听明白。虽然这种说法明显是错误的,但是在这里我也不想浪费文字去反驳,读者们请自行决定是否要阅读或者离开。

一个例子

这里是一个连读的例子。在这个例子里,不仅仅有连读的存在,还包含发音的一些变化,请仔细分辨:
书写英语:They tell me that I’m easier to understand.

口语连读:theytellme thedaimeasier der-undersdand

连读的分类

英语中的连读主要有四种:
1)辅音+元音的连读(Consonant + Vowel)
2)辅音+辅音的连读
3)元音+元音的连读
4)T, D, S 或 Z + Y的连读

1. 辅音+元音的连读

一般来说中国人比较熟悉这种连读——前一个词由辅音结尾,后一个词由元音开头,于是就很自然地连起来了,比如:

My name is&helli p; [my nay•miz]
because I’ve. [b'k'zäiv]
pick up on the American intonation… [pi•kə pan the(y) əmer'kə ninətənashən]

不只是句子中,读字母缩写也可以连读:

LA [eh•Lay]

读数字时也可以连读:

902 5050 [nai•no•too fai•vo•fai•vo]

再来几个简单例子:

hold on [hol don]
turn over [tur nover]
tell her I miss her [teller I misser]

因为这种连读一般初中生都会,在这里就不详细介绍了,重头戏在后面,马上开演。

2. 辅音+辅音的连读

这个很难用文字描述,放到最后再讲。

3. 元音+元音的连读

如果前一个词是由元音[u]结尾,下一个词由元音开头,那么,在[u]后面加上一个辅音[w]
如果前一个词是由元音[i]结尾,下一个词由元音开头,那么,在[i]后面加上一个辅音[y]

只说规则似乎有点不好理解,看例子就明白了。

Go away. [Go(w)away]

在电影Big Fish中,巨人Carl说过这句话。因为巨人说话又慢又重,所以那个w很明显。
再来看一个例子:

I also need the other one. [I(y)also need thee(y)other one]

这种连读不能把辅音w或者j发得太重,否则会显得很傻,但是不发这两个辅音的话又会很难念得顺口。

go anywhere [go(w)anywhere]
so honest [so(w)honest]
through our [through(w)our]
you are [you(w)are]
he is [he(y)is]
do I? [do(w)I?]
I asked [I(y)asked]
to open [to(w)open]
she always [she(y)always]
too often [too(w)often]

4. T, D, S 或 Z + Y的连读

如果前面的单词是以T/D/S/Z结尾,后面的单词是以Y开头(一般是you这个词),那么有如下的连读规则可以使用。

最后的话

可能有人会觉得奇怪,为什么在附录之后还有一段。嗯,就像电影在片尾字幕结束后的隐藏镜头一样,这一段是要用来揭密的:本文中的所有内容,包括规则和例子,都来自于ATT——《American Accent Training》这本书,Amazon上的网址是:http://www.amazon.com/American-Accent-Training- Speaking-Pronouncing/dp/0764114298/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books& qid=1251888224&sr=8-2。故而,所有的荣光属于原作者Ann Cook女士。另外,关于辅音和辅音的连读,恕我不能用简短的文字描述清楚,请自行参考原书(和CD)。谢谢观赏,再见……
