Learn how to pronounce the words PROCEEDS & PROCEEDS with this American English heteronym pronunciation lesson. Heteronyms are words that are spelled exactly the same. They just have a different pronunciation and a different meaning.
money obtained from an activity
to begin or continue a course of action
Hi everyone it’s Jennifer from Tarle speech with your heteronym lesson. Heteronyms are words that are spelled the same but they have different meanings and different pronunciations.
Our words today are:
proceeds which is money obtained from an activity and
proceeds which is to begin or continue a course of action
So there is the word.
So to say these words correctly, they are going to end the exact same way with the word seeds, like when you plant seeds. And to do this you’re going to start with that s. Air just continues out of your mouth. The tip of your tongue is either pointed down or is behind the top front teeth that is not touching. Then we’re going to move to that long e. It’s only one E. I wrote it with two just so you remember to keep it really really long, and to do that you’re going to smile and your tongue is going to be high and flat in your mouth. End with that d – d – by touching the tip of your tongue to the back of your top front teeth and letting it pop down. When it pops down let that air move out of your mouth again for that z sound.
seeds seeds seeds
Now let’s jump to the beginning. We’re going to start both of these words with that PR sound. Let’s think of this as one sound for this lesson. Think about starting that R – ER. The tip of your tongue is either down or flipped back, back of the tongue is pulled high up, and your lips are square and tense. Think about getting your tongue in that position then close the lips as you open the lips. you’re ready for the r . Okay so let’s try that per per.
This way when you do that when you get ready for that R you don’t add that extra sound after the P. It just sounds like one smooth continuation from the P to the r pr pr.
Now let’s talk about word stress here. A common rule is in heteronyms when a word is a noun we are going to stress syllable number one and when it is a verb we’re going to stress syllable number two and that holds true in this case. When we stress something it’s louder, higher, and the vowel is longer. So in this case we’re going to use the long o in pro seeds. And to do that open your mouth and then pucker for that o.
And then for proceeds in the verb we are going to use that schwa sound that short uh sound. It’s a very relaxed sound and your mouth is just open and tongue is kind of hanging out in the middle of your mouth. Okay so let’s put this all together.
Let’s start with the noun stressing syllable number one proceeds
proceeds proceeds proceeds proceeds proceeds
And now for the verb proceeds proceeds proceeds precedes precedes proceeds proceeds proceeds proceeds proceeds
And now for a sentence:
The charity will proceed to spend the proceeds from the event on their programs.
