Ok, here’s a set of flashcards before I pop anytime soon: to demonstrate the correct pronunciation of English words ending with “man” and “men”.
For a long time, I’ve struggled with the correct way to pronounce words such as “man”, “men”, “policeman”, “policemen”, “policewoman”, “policewomen”, “snowman”, “snowmen”, etc. What’s more, Vee is a huge fan of occupations such as policemen, postmen and firemen.
And it doesn’t help that hubby argues that my pronunciation is wrong while I think his doesn’t sound right too.
So I pored through an online dictionary, figured out the pronunciation and came up with this set of flashcards.
Luckily, Vee is quite amused by the pictures. 🙂 And using open-source clipart means these flashcards can be shared with you!
Hope you’d find them useful…
