Pronunciation Questions: commonly mispronounced vowels

Son & Sun are pronounced the same; dAUGHTer, like bOUGHT, tAUGHT = OT /dótr/ /bot/ /tot/

Don’t say /o/ in these words, say /a/ – mother, Monday, money

More words, pay attention to where you might mispronounce:

a woman /wuumn/, women are /wimin/

About obesity, I don’t know if you all saw this documentary they showed last week about it. It was about obese kids whose life was at risk, but the kind of obesity that is an illness. And it was not the kids’ fault, really. Their siblings ate the same amount and did not put on that much weight. So it’s a truly complex issue, as anything that’s human, right? 🙂
