How to pronounce


To pronounce the word "bright," focus on its vowel sound, which is crucial for getting it right. The word is pronounced as a single syllable: /braɪt/.

  • The vowel sound in "bright" is represented by the diphthong /aɪ/. A diphthong is a sound formed by the combination of two vowels in a single syllable, where the sound begins as one vowel and moves towards another.
  • Start with the /a/ sound, similar to the 'a' in "father," but shorter and more open.
  • Then, glide into the /ɪ/ sound, which is like the 'i' in "bit" or "sit."
  • The transition should be smooth, moving directly from the /a/ to the /ɪ/ sound without stopping.
  • The 'r' at the beginning of "bright" is pronounced as /br/. This should be a quick, rolled or tapped 'r' sound, depending on your accent, followed immediately by the /aɪ/ diphthong.
  • Finally, end with the 't' sound /t/, a sharp, clear cut-off by briefly stopping the airflow with your tongue touching the roof of your mouth near the front teeth, then releasing.

Putting it all together, the pronunciation focuses on smoothly transitioning from the /a/ to the /ɪ/ sound within the diphthong /aɪ/, starting with the /br/ sound and ending with the /t/.
