Pronounce "contagious"

Hiya! It's been a while. I know. I apologize for not sticking to our schedule. WWA is supposed to be a bi-weekly feature but I get carried away sometimes. Forgive me. You hear?


Lesson 4
Word of the Day: contagious

Meaning: adj. capable of being easily spread to others and causing other people to feel or act a similar way

PronunciationI had always pronounced the 'a' as 'a' in rat. But discovered it should be pronounced as 'a' in ray.

Wrong = \ˈkontadʒəs\
Right = \ˈkənteidʒəs \

Listen below:



Sentence used: positivity is contagious
