Sense = cents? So in the word "sente" we pronunce it as if it was an "TS" at the end? Even if the letter "T" doesn't exist in this word?

For the people saying she's wrong that sense and cents are homophones, it depends on if you have an accent where the t is emphasized for not. Like, the word internet is often pronounced like "inner-net" in North America or even the word often can be pronounced as "off-en". Hence, why they sense and cents can be homophones.

Why six is afraid of seven? Because seven, ate, nine...hohohoho

OK I am very bad at homophones, so just bare with me. Ok I'm 23 and never liked school but passed high school. I was never good at math,spelling,or reading big words. Most likely I'm not going back to school because I already passed high school. School never was my thing. I always needed help with homework and it got so bad with math that my mom had to do it for me and I just copied it but I knew I wasn't going to use algebra and going to a tutored wasn't going well because I never could process what was going on. It was bad for me, school was not my thing. Homophones are almost just as bad, I forget about the words being used in certain subjects.      I type some words  and I type wrong so the keyboard underlines a red line under the word I type if spelled wrong. I would always get so confused with homophones, I don't know why we can't just use the one word like it is 3 there/their/they're, wish we could just have one. I sometimes wonder how can people remember all those different words that sound the same and remember how to use them right. It's hard for me. I watched this video and forgot it. I tried to get it though.

And what about ate = eight = hate
Is that correct Ronnie?

Автор z/d amanu ( назад)
Ronnie thanks

Автор Mr Jayhawker ( назад)
Amazing video and lesson, Ronnie! Btw it's /kləʊðz/ (clothes), /kləʊs/ (close) as an adj. and /kləʊz/ (to close) as a verb. Nobody really knows it but they are no homophones at all! Three different pronunciations! Check that out :) 
I've been studying languages, linguistics, sociolinguistics and interpreting skills (kinda heavy, I know). Bye ;)

A bite of the byte (the word of byte exists since commmmmmm-puters exist)
I hear here because I ate eight bites of byte, so check it out Czechs that I have a sense that it'll be not cents on my cheques even if my cell sells myself. I'm gonna close with clothes my body now, my computer have a serial doesn't have any scents of cereal.

Some choose some words and some chews on some words. Get the set of picture?

Автор dgdhqgdyukqud (281 год назад)
I like to use brackets if I have a set of conclusion, which is (not that) important.

Автор dgdhqgdyukqud (388 лет назад)
Do you like math Ronney? No??!! Ah okey...

There are mathematical sets for the words as well. Set of A includes (byte, hear, ate) set of B includes (bite, here, eight). A n B (intersection of two sets) words include like (well, gay) however A can be a symmetric difference of set of B and set of B can be a symmetric difference of set of A, but people confuses it with set of A is a subset of B, so B can be a subset of set A, because set of A is included in set of B.

Sen-sei? and kents? lol

Great, fun and very usefull lesson for us : french people. TY

Автор rana argoun ( назад)
i'm not sure ,, does really sense sounds like cents ?? but sense does not have a T and also i always hear it in movies , as sense without T like " he have a sixth sense " i hear it without T , so does "sense " sound like "sense" or "sentse" ??

Автор EnglishLessons4U - Learn English with Ronnie! [engVid] ( назад)
When you make the THR sound, your tongue goes out then comes in quickly, like a lizard! If people say "tree" instead of three it maybe because they are Irish???? Or have an accent!
Months is like "mun-s" and clothes is exactly the same as "close"!
Thanks for watching and best of luck!

As others have said, 'clothes' and 'close' aren't homophones, and neither are 'sense' and 'cents'. Maybe in very quick speech they sound the same and you wouldn't hear the 'th' in 'clothes' or the 't' in 'cents', but they should be pronounced nonetheless.

Автор junLVlun ( назад)
maybe because of after "cloth" has "s", so its changed the pronunciation n same pronoun with close?

Автор grrarghh1 ( назад)
@flyxawayxxx - In the UK it would be wrong to leave the 'th' in clothes and have it as a homophone of close. Admittedly, the 'th' is very slight, but it's there nonetheless.

Автор grrarghh1 ( назад)
@funkyfawz - I'm Scottish and English is my first language. Clothes and close are not homophones. Cents and sense are not homophones. If you've been taught otherwise, then I'm afraid you've been taught incorrectly.

"Cheque" Is the way it's spelt in England and Ireland, so cheque" is not a 'very Canadian word'

yes and of course i enjoyed i wish i had a teacher like u.u rock bye

Автор sweiland75 ( назад)
I think everyone needs to see this video. If there is one thing that I have learned online, it is that a lot of people, whose first language I am sure is English, confuse different homophones like there, their and they're.
