  14. 14. HEY! PHONETIC SOUND SPELLINGS •Module 4 •M4 MODULE 4 •Slang & Strong -Expressions NOTES & TIPS • Module 4 Lesson Notes -1 • A special word of caution regarding swear words and strong Intonation. • Obviously swear words are used at the speakers discretion. It could be said that English has many levels of expressive language from expressing vulgarities and obscene language to strong emotional feelings or slang expressions usually meant for close understanding friends. • There can not be enough said about the expressive power of Intonation in a speakers voice. Intonation and voice pitch do not follow ridged rules but are well understood by native speakers. Intonation is a huge aspect of English, often a tone of voice tells the real story of a speakers thoughts, despite that their words might reflect completely different meanings.

  15. 15. HEY! PHONETIC SOUND SPELLINGS •Module 4 •M4 MODULE 4 •Slang & Strong -Expressions NOTES & TIPS • Module 4 Lesson Notes -1 • Along with voice Intonation, the stress of certain words and syllables in a phrase will greatly affect the intended and perceived meaning. This also includes pausing and the duration of spoken words in a sentence. • The very best way to learn these flexible elements of English is to build "Sound Memory" by attempting to repeat exactly what you hear with the speakers voice. • Of course real conversation experience is the ultimate learning environment. However, building "Sound Memory" through mimicking a native speaker will prepare your ears and brain to catch the words in context. Then your mouth will also be ready to speak your own expressive phrases. Friday, December 27, 13 Sound y Memor Real e perienc Ex nd ndersta U ing

  19. 19. HEY! About: Key Words Joking & Kidding Mini~Course 1.0 Joking & Kidding Mini~Course Lesson notes & Tips • Vocab. & Grammar Notes • The words Joking & Kidding have the same meaning and politeness. Using one over the other is strictly the speakers choice. Kidding (might) beused slightly more between close or intimate friends, but not necessarily. • Intonation is a very important expressive tool in English and can add different layers of meaning to any phrase.

You will hear the same Intonations in real conversation. (Sound Memory + Real Experience = Understanding) • Joking & Kidding usually can use the same grammar pattern, but not in every case. Some expressions might grammatically be the same but one might sounds more natural in everyday use. Friday, December 27, 13 Sound y Memor Real e perienc Ex nd ndersta U ing
