Why is the “H” in “Her” not pronounced in some English phrases? In today’s Minute English lesson, we’re practicing the “H” Reduction to improve your American accent & spoken English!
Let’s do some training, let’s take the word “Her” and talk about how it’s often pronounced without an h.
For example, I want her to see it.
We drop the h in her, that’s a really common reduction.
What’s happening with the T in want?
We often drop it after an R before a vowel so ‘want her’, you’ll often hear that ‘want-er’
I saw her there yesterday.
I need her here now.
need-er, no h.
I found her at the library.
found-er, no h.
I’ll talk to her tomorrow.
to-er, no h
