Mensagem:  Dear Ricardo, As unbelievable as it may seem, after all these years of living in America I still haven't mastered(At least I don't have the confidence) the correct pronunciation of the words ending in /thern/ such as SOUTHERN, and NORTHERN. I believe the reason it's been so hard is due to the fact that these sounds don't exist in my native tongue. I came to America in my late teens. Anyway, I was wondering if you could break them down phonetically for me. I think it would be helpful. I would really appreciate your cooperation. Cheers, -Miguel Vieira
