Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Season 4 – Episode 33 – Pronunciation – Weak Form of That

In relative clauses, the pronunciation of the word that is often “weak” and sound like /dat/. It can be difficult to hear this difference, but it important to listen for it.

What’s that? (strong form)

It’s an invention that really change the way we live. (weak form)

Listen to my pronunciation in the podcast.

Which of the following is strong and weak?

  1. I started making podcasts on different topics: speaking, pronunciation, grammar, things like that.
  2. You’re a person that doesn’t like taking ‘no’ for an answer.
  3. My Arsenio Buck Foundation is a foundation that represents pillars.
  4. That’s all well and good, but why do you keep pursuing your dream?
