American English Pronunciation: Top 10 Tips

Top 10 tips to help non-native speakers in mastering American English pronunciation. If there is one aspect of American English that baffles many non-native speakers, it would be American English pronunciation. If you have studied the American accent for some length of time, then you are probably aware of the many reasons why pronunciation can be such a difficult skill to master if you only learned English as a second language.
For example, your native tongue might have patterns of intonation, rhythm, and timing which are vastly different from that used in American English. Another problem would be that some sounds in American English might not have any accurate equivalents in your native tongue.

Reduction & Linking

When a sound in a word changes or is dropped in the context of a sentence, that is reduction.  For example, the word 'and' commonly reduces to 'nn'.  Reduction is an important part of the character of American English:  reduced syllables are flat in pitch (relating to intonation) and very quick (relating to rhythm).
