英语笔记
 
1.口语中此句常读为/aɪdəʊnt'laɪk/。
2.have an eye on sth. 意思是“喜欢某物,看上某物”。
3.it 的/ɪ/被省略,it与on连读,try it on的发音为/traɪ tɒn/。
 
英语语音语调
 
I don't like…
你听到的don't like读成/dəʊnt'laɪk/。口语中当词尾是t,下一个词词首是辅音时,/t/会弱化到几乎听不到。只能听到中间的停顿或是很轻的发音,接近于do like,但是结合语境,不会造成误解,所以/t/就被省略了。类似的情况有很多,比如:
I didn't watch /dɪdnˈwɒtʃ/ yesterday's football game.
我没有看昨天的球赛。
I can't tell /kænˈtel/ you the secret.
我不能告诉你这个秘密。
