Syllables in Native English is often stressed, yet in French language syllables are correctly pronounced distinctively and plainly. Syllables in French is always stressed the same, less some occasions whereas few which are somewhat “rising infections of the voice.” In this instance, the rules relate immediately following syllables of a word ending when silent –e is used. (E.g. agrèable meaning agreeable, locomotive and voyage)
How to speak French:
To learn how to speak French you will need a basic structural outline, some culture knowledge and the willpower to get started. French is one of the easier languages learned. And when you learn that most French words associate and are often near English words, you will find it easier to learn the language. Of course, some of the language is confusing, yet if you take time to associate you will find learning French easier.
If you want to say good morning in French or hello, you’d use the same syllables when speaking French. (E.g. bonjour, means good morning or hello) Both are greetings and share the same meaning in many ways. If you want to say ‘how are you,’ in French you would say comment vas-tu and for someone to reply with ‘and you,’ they would say, Et toi. To say, good and you, the speaker would say, bon et toi. The rule of thumb when speaking French is to remember: voyelle nasle on nasalized vowel on or vowel nasle one nasalized vowel one, which nasal sounds often come from speaking French. In other words, you use your mouth and tongue in a way that you sound almost nasal when you speak many French words.
When learning French you want to note distinctive ways that other people speak. If you are in school, watch your instructor and listen as he uses syllables in French. Listen and familiarize yourself, since you want to note the formal methods in the way that others speak.
How does the nasal method work?
The nasal ways is often noted in two syllables. When the nasal sound comes out, the breath passes through the nose and the mouth simultaneously. When syllables need a fixing, the French people combine consonne or consonants to resolve the issues. In French, -a, -e, -i, -o, -u, and –y are not consonants. Every other letter is…most syllables begin with consonants, yet when consonants are emitted, thus lips prepare to for the vowels in which it relates to the term.
When you pronounce French words that use –i then you want to make sure that the consonants when speaking with nasal forms produces air, sharpness, clear and firm effects. If you are using French words with –é then you would apply the same rule.
In some instances, you will stress words where accent tonigue applies, or tonic accent. Locomotive is one of the examples to stress your meaning.
What rules apply to French names?
In many instances, where Christian names are used, the speaker would use first names only, or prénoms. Sometimes the words are spoken with marks, such as Andre, which is André. Marguerite is the only name in French that is spoken the same as many other languages, such as Spanish. Marie is the same also in many instances.
