We’re going to go over the pronunciation of the word opportunity.
So the word opportunity is a five syllable word
with secondary stress on the first syllable and primary stresses on the third syllable
da da DA da da
it begins with the AH as in the father vowel
and you do need a bit of a jaw drop for that ah ah
op and then the lips will come together to make the p sound
op poor poor
next we have the chwar r sound
the r will take over the chwar
so don’t worry about making a separate sound
op poor poor so the tongue will pull back up for that r sound op poor poor poor
and now we have the stressed syllable
it begins with a tee and since this is a stressed syllable it will be a true tee
op poor tun tu so to make the t the tongue will need to go to the roof of the mouth
and the teeth with close t oppor tune t we’ll stop the air just a little bit
and let it escape when part the teeth
going into the next sound in this case the aww as in the baw vowel
notice you’ll need to have you lips sort of around for that tu tu opportunity opportunity
next we have the n consonant sound so the tongue will go to the roof of the mouth again
tun tun and this is in in for the n in opportunity this is in time for the n then we have the ih sound and now we have the t this comes between well its not beginning its its ah opportunity nity nity nity nity so the tongue will come down for the ih vowel and back up to the roof of the mouth and then quickly for the flat t and then down again for the e as in the e opportunity opportunity.
This is a great opportunity.
