What is the difference between the words ‘cot’ and ‘caught’ in British English?
And how do they compare to vowels in other languages?
This week’s suggestion came from a Brazilian Portuguese speaker:
(if you speak Portuguese, today’s your lucky day!)
I go deeper into how ‘caught’ compares to the vovó / vovǒ vowels
BUT, if you speak Spanish, Arabic (and many, many more languages) then the “vovǒ” sound will sound familiar too, and will be a good reference point.
Either way, if you’re anything like me, you have a real love of languages and sound.
So it can be really beneficial to get a good ‘vowel orientation’, regardless of the vowels in your home language.
So watch the video now and don’t forget to give me a suggestion for next week!
