Are You Saying These Words Right?

A NOTE: Some words in this video are commonly misspelled which can cause mispronunciation. For many words there isn’t one unquestionably correct pronunciation, it depends on numerous factors. Dictionaries by Cambridge and Oxford have been consulted to create this video, but please bear in mind that whilst a “correct” pronunciation option has been given, there are lots of cases where other variations are also widely accepted.

Basically don’t get too peeved if the option you use isn’t there – your way could still be correct!
