How to pronounce
If you are a non-native English speaker, you may find it difficult to pronounce the word "answer." In this article, we will explain how to correctly pronounce "answer."
"Answer" is a five-letter word made up of two syllables, "an" and "swer." The first syllable, "an," should be pronounced with a short, flat "a" sound, as in the word "can." It should not be drawn out or nasal. The "n" should be sounded clearly.
The second syllable, "swer," should be pronounced with a flat "s" sound, similar to the sound in the word "sun." The "w" should be sounded softly, almost as if it is swallowed. The "e" should be pronounced with a short, flat sound, similar to the sound in the word "bet."
To put the word together, stress the first syllable and connect the two syllables together, as if they were one. The correct pronunciation of "answer" is "an-swer," with the emphasis on the "an."
