這個影片的目的不是執著某些讀音,而是想你們記住母語人士在說話時也會犯錯 哈 所以你們在說其他語言時可完全自由奔放 不需害羞。 還有,Candidate的確有兩個正確讀音,但其他題目的發音應該只有一個正確官方答案,Desert 我們標明了是「名詞」。 Hope you guys can learn something from this video!! Even native speakers make mistakes when they talk, so don't be shy when you speak a foreign language. Candidate。

讀過linguistics既人表示,你真系好狹隘,就例如women因為語流音變,可以讀【womin 】唔一定讀【wimin】,唔好話人地錯或者唔標準,dislike你系抵死既

But the problem the alternative pronunciation is just another way a lot of people pronounce it, it is not a mistake. You make people angry if you are telling them they are wrong when they are not. And you make it worse by putting advertisements inside your video.

If English is your first language, you pronounce the words like the people in your region. They should have specified the pronunciation according to the Cambridge Dictionary. Only the Quuen and her family speak the Queen's English.

I believe the first word “Candidate” can be spoken two different ways. The way people said it in your video who you considered wrong is the US version. Your way is the UK version. Everything else is fine though.

I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking group called dark web, they are really good at what they are doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying . Few days later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $5,000. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life with my Family. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $90,000 without any stress of being caught. I don’t know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. email Mr Rick via rickatmcardoffer@gmail.com DM now becuse ATM has really change my life. If you want to contact them. now.xx

個見:語言 -不是用來炫耀的,是用來溝通的,目的是另(令)對方知道你在說什麼。不過,既然要學第二第三甚至第四語言,那麼就要認真一點,注意文法,語法,和發音... 。不過香港人習慣懶音,香港人習慣不認真,喜歡炫耀,跟 “星 la” 系朋友喜歡炫耀他們有語言天分異曲同工。時代演變,母語人士,特別在口語時候,也不注重 文法,不注重發音了,是事實。其實香港人的英語水平近年走下坡,在重要的公司年報,法律文件裡面經常出現,連我這般”水皮“的都隨便抽到錯處。 遺憾。我有另外一個看法,特別網上很多版主教人怎樣怎樣去說得像個 ”母語“ 人士,有必要裝嗎? 就用英語來做例子,假若你有運跟 Londoner 學,自然跟 他/她 的口音(accent),假如他們是來自 英國 南部,midland, Scotland, Ireland 或 Wales, 又或是 香港本土,你怎麼裝? 其實英國本土就有這些不同口音,不少我沒辦法聽懂,更不要說 澳大利亞,南非,加拿大,美國。同樣他們本土口音也視乎來自哪地區的。同樣的道理,日本語也一樣。既然不能說得像個“本土”人士那麼就認真的按文法,語法,來說話。 //PS//:為了表示我認真,我 edit "令”字。 因為我用拼音,偶爾會選字出錯。補充:我非常反感那些糾纏於以下哪個才是正確:WC,toilet, wash room, bath room, lavatory....; 及以下發音:either, neither, data, can't ....之類。超級無聊。

口試當然會有標準讀音,一個語言有一個正規標準也是必須的,否則很難令語言普及起來。但直接指不跟隨標準讀音的人是「讀錯」就真的太過了(除非他們測試前有明確向路人表明是按某某標準)。我以下嘗試解釋一下。 我會想的問題是「不跟隨標準讀音就等同『錯 』嗎 ?」,首先我們學習外來語言時或多或少都會和自己本身的語言習慣融合起來,從而形成一個普遍的、可辨識的口音特色,例如說台灣人念「bug」時那個g音會讀出額外的尾音,如果按標準讀音一定不合格,但我們有必要直接說他們讀錯嗎,要求他們不能把尾音發出來想必也很痛苦吧。影片那個來自英格蘭的伯伯聽到有人說他讀錯也直接爆氣走了,我對英格蘭的讀法毫無認識,但至少可知道那伯伯應該對自己地方的讀音很堅持,若果硬要說是錯的話可能會有一堆當地人想衝過來打托哥。 按我的粗淺理解,英文有很多字的讀音都是「不規則」的,即是不能直接看到詞語就能知道發音,例如bad 裡的a 跟smart裡的a 讀起來都不同吧 (但如果是有規則可循的話 請矯正我),外來人學起來容易混亂然後把自家語言的讀音混進去也算是人之常情吧。 說到最後,語言本身也是用作相互溝通,影片中受訪者的讀音跟標準也相差不遠,我相信絕大部份人都有聽懂吧,若果這還是當作「錯」的話那真的太矯枉過正了。你大可以拿著一個標準四處說人讀錯,但會有一種精英看不起人的感覺,老實說我覺得真的沒有甚麼意義。再者一個語言有眾多口音不是更加有趣嗎? 至於要如何在保留標準和包容地方特色之間取得平衡,甚麼情況下必須要求標準,我就真的不懂了,歡迎大家交流。

The way they pronounced Candidate is correct in American English. You are British English, so obviously you all pronounce it differently. A lot Hong Kong English speakers don't always pronounce words exactly the British styles and with America's global influence, more of them are learning the American English instead of British English, especially with accents.

I was very excited about the video during the introduction, but then the content is very narrow-minded. You do realise there is a difference between pronouncing things clearly wrong and having a specific accent/regional dialect. I mean if the intention of the video is publicity, I guess you achieved it.

There’s a lot of other ways you could have made this fun and educational, such as presenting different accents from people of different nationalities to the audience, and at the same time teaching them what the standard pronunciation is in the dictionary. This will achieve your goal of educating the public and also celebrate the diversity in Hong Kong. You can see how everyone was excited to share their background and participate in your game until you started to criticise them... But alas i guess you’re not a “clever person in hong kong” either so you probably didn’t take the hint🤷🏻‍♀️

I’m not going to even comment on every single word on this list. For the first word “candidate”, according to at least Oxford dictionary, it can be pronounced either /ˈkændɪdət/ or /ˈkændɪdeɪt/. Stop imposing your own version of pronunciations on other people, thinking that you’re only one who’s correct.

Do they have PhD & massive English-teaching experience to show us that their own English are the only correct one??? They're nobody, just one blonde & a man who date blonde; that's it!!!
