How To Pronounce "Caught" vs. "Cot" In Standard British English

By Paul Baston | Word Of The Week

May 28
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!
