WORD: kerosene

Are you sure you've been using the right thing in your stove? LOL. We'll know today. :)


It's that time of the week when we learn how to pronounce an English word like the English people. You know how we do. Let's do.

Lesson 2
Word of the Day: kerosene

Meaning: a type of oil that is burned as a fuel

PronunciationI had always pronounced the 's' as 'z' in zip. But discovered it should be pronounced as 's' in sip

*Note that the symbols are not so phonetically written for easy assimilation*

Wrong = \keˈrozin\
Right = \ˈkerosin\

Listen below:



Sentence used: go buy me kerosene
