Hello friends. Today’s word update for often mispronounced words is:
Words having MB together such as TOMB, WOMB, NUMB, PLUMBER
Correct pronunciation: Irrespective of the fact for how long you have been pronouncing words including MB as you have been, the correct pronunciation has the “B” silent. The “O” is pronounced as in “to” and not as in “go”. Hence, the correct pronunciation is “TOOM”, “WOOM”, “NUM” and “PLUM-ER”.
Next time a plumber visits your house make sure to correct others at home too, and boast, coz thatslyf.
Stay tuned for more tomorrow…
