Assunto:  Differences in pronouncing the 'w'
 
Mensagem:  Hello people I came across a very good material about English pronunciation, it shows the problems that might occur and how to exercise such sounds. Unfortunately it's the copy of the copy and there isn't even a title. It says that the "w" in "wheel" is unvoiced (representeted by a inverted "w", not an "m") and the "w" in "watch" is voiced, but it's really a pain in the butt to recognise these sounds because the difference between them is very discreet and in the booklet there's a passage saying that the unvoiced "w" is disappearing from the English language, neutralizing the difference between "witch" and "which". I'd like to see some comments about it. José Roberto
