ITALIAN PRONUNCIATION - *** With audio files in streaming: 1. ITALIAN ALPHABET

Italian alphabet was originally composed by 21 letters, and did not include J, K, X, Y, W.
Nowadays, since in italian we use a big deal of foreign words, 26 letter alphabet is used.
Besides each letter I put its name in brackets.

Be aware that you will hear the letter names, that is how each letter is named in Italian, that sometimes is not the same as their pronunciation.

2. Italian pronunciation: VOWELS: Italian VOWELS

As a general rule, the sound of Italian vowels is not affected by other letters. There is only one exception: when i belongs to particular clusters, its sound is not heard (I’ll talk about it later in this thread).

The Italian vowels are always pronounced clipped, that is they usually have a shorter sound than English vowels. To show how to pronunce italian words, sometimes phonetic spelling is used. This is made by adding an h to the final vowel of each syllable.

Example: the words vino, casa, città would be spelled vyhnoh, kahsah, cyhttàh. I will not use phonetic spelling though.

Click below to listen to Italian vowels pronunciation:











Here is the contents of the audio file:

a come (as in) cane, casa, tavola
e (e chiusa - closed e) come vero, rete, sete
e (e aperta - open e) come pieno, cielo, serio
i i come vino, riso, filo
o (o chiusa - closed o) come nome, colore, voce
o (o aperta - open o) come oro, coro, lotta
u come uva, cubo, fungo


Italian has 5 vowels: [color=blue]a, e, i, o, u[/color] and 7 vowel sounds: [color=blue]a[/color], [color=blue]é [/color](closed e), [color=blue]è[/color] (open e), [color=blue]i[/color], [color=blue]ó[/color] (closed o), [color=blue]ò[/color] (open o), [color=blue]u[/color].

Italian [color=blue]a[/color] sounds like the english [color=red]a[/color] in c[color=red]a[/color]r, b[color=red]a[/color]th

Italian [color=blue]é[/color] (closed e) sounds like the english [color=red]ai[/color] in f[color=red]ai[/color]r or the english [color=red]ei[/color] in n[color=red]ei[/color]ghbour
some italian words pronounced with a closed e: vero (true), rete(network), sete (thirst)

Italian [color=blue]è[/color] (open e) sounds like the english [color=red]e[/color] in g[color=red]e[/color]t, l[color=red]e[/color]t, m[color=red]e[/color]t
some italian words pronounced with an open e: pieno (full), cielo (sky), serio (serious)

Italian [color=blue]i[/color] sounds like the english [color=red]i[/color] in mach[color=red]i[/color]ne, and like the english [color=red]y[/color] in g[color=red]y[/color]m

Italian [color=blue]ó[/color] (closed o) sounds like the english [color=red]o[/color] in c[color=red]o[/color]al
some italian words pronounced with a closed o: nome (name), colore (color), voce (voice)

Italian [color=blue]ò[/color] (open o) sounds like the english [color=red]o[/color] in l[color=red]o[/color]t, b[color=red]o[/color]x
some italian words pronounced with an open o: oro (gold), coro (choir), lotta (fight)

Italian [color=blue]u[/color] sounds like the english [color=red]u[/color] in r[color=red]u[/color]le

Italian pronunciation - Diphthongs in Italian: Diphthongs and triphthongs in Italian

1. DIPHTHONGS
To explain diphthongs pronunciation in Italian, we need to recall some general concepts about syllables.
A word is composed of syllables. A syllable is a letter or some letters uttered by a single impulse of the voice. A syllable must contain at least one vowel: there can’t be any syllable without a vowel in it.
Monolingual dictionaries usually show syllabication, that is the division of words into syllables.

A diphthong is made of two vowels sounded together in the same syllable.

Italian vowels can be classified into two vowel groups:
[color=blue]STRONG[/color] vowels: [color=blue] A, E, O [/color]
[color=blue]WEAK[/color] vowels: [color=blue] I, U [/color]

A diphthong is formed when a weak vowel (I or U) combines with a strong vowel (A, E, O) or when the two weak vowels combine with each other, in which case either the I or U may remain unstressed.
The strong vowel is always more emphasized of the weak one. If the diphthong is formed by two weak vowels, the second one is stressed more strongly.
In diphthongs, unstressed I and U become semivowels approximating in sound the English consonants Y and W, respectively.

Diphthongs examples:
[color=blue] IA [/color] sounds like YA in [color=red]YA[/color]RD: PIANO (FLAT), VIALE (AVENUE), ANSIA (ANXIETY)
[color=blue]IE[/color] sounds like YE in [color=red]YE[/color]S: PIEDE (FOOT), IERI (YESTERDAY), TIEPIDO (WARM)
[color=blue]IO[/color] sounds like YO in [color=red]YO[/color]RK: FIORE (FLOWER), VIOLA (VIOLET), CHIODO (NAIL)
[color=blue]IU[/color] sounds like EW in F[color=red]EW[/color]: FIUME (RIVER), PIUMA (FEATHER), CHIUSO (CLOSED)
[color=blue]UA[/color] : this sound doesn’t exist in English. Run U and A together: GUANCIA (CHEEK) , QUANTO (HOW), SGUARDO (LOOK)
[color=blue]UE[/color] sounds like WE in [color=red]WE[/color]LL:QUESTO (THIS), QUELLO (THAT), GUERRA (WAR)
[color=blue]UI[/color] sounds like WI in [color=red]WI[/color]LL: ACQUISTO (PURCHASE), GUIDA (GUIDE), QUI (HERE)
[color=blue]UO[/color] sounds like WO in [color=red]WO[/color]N: CUORE (HEART), UOMO (MAN), SUONO (SOUND)

[color=blue]AI[/color] sounds like I in F[color=red]I[/color]GHT: MAI (NEVER), CAIMANO (CAYMAN), ZAINO (BACKPACK)
[color=blue]EI[/color] sounds like AY in S[color=red]AY[/color]: SEI (SIX), LEI (SHE), DEI (GODS)
[color=blue]OI[/color] sounds like OY in T[color=red]OY[/color]: VOI (YOU), POI (THEN), NOI (WE)
[color=blue]AU[/color] sounds like OW in BR[color=red]OW[/color]N: PAUSA (PAUSE), CAUSA (PAUSE), AURORA (DAWN)
[color=blue]EU[/color] : this sound doesn’t exist in English. Run E and U together: EUROPA (EUROPE), NEUROLOGO (NEUROLOGIST), PNEUMATICO (TYRE)

Click below to listen to the Italian diphthongs.











2. TRIPTHONGS
Tripthongs also exist. These are sequences of three vowels with a single sound, usually a diphthong followed by an unstressed I. Tripthongs are not very frequent in Italian.
[color=blue]UOI[/color]: TUOI (YOUR), VUOI (YOU WANT), BUOI (OXEN)
[color=blue]IEI[/color]: MIEI (MY)
[color=blue]IUO[/color]: AIUOLA (FLOWERBED), FIGLIUOLO (SON)
[color=blue]IAI[/color]: ODIAI (I HATED), PIGLIAI (I TOOK)

Click below to listen to the Italian triphthongs:










3. VOWEL SEQUENCES
Some words contain sequences of vowels. The following words are not triphthongs but sequences of a vowel + diphthong:
PAIO (PAIR), FIORAIO (FLORIST), GENNAIO (JANUARY), NOIA (BOREDOM)

Each of the words below has a sequence of two diphthongs:
GHIAIA (GRAVEL), ACQUAIO (SINK), MUOIO (I DIE), GIOIELLO (JEWEL)

Click below to listen to vowel sequences:











4. HIATUS
The combination of the vowel I, U with another vowel does not automatically
form diphthongs. In some words I, U are followed or preceeded by other vowels
without forming diphthongs: in these cases we have to speak of hiatus. That will be discussed in the following post.

Your alphabet pronounciation is hard to understand because I don't know the italian words you used to help pronounce each letter. Could use an english word to help me understand the pronounciation of the letter?

Thanks,

Try this: Look at the text as your listening to the audio,this way you can see it at same time ,the text has the example in Italian & English .Like una donna = a women.Hope this helps.
Funny thing is I came to phrasebase to learn Tamil, but my desire changed to learn French .Once here found I recalled some Arabic and pick up on that studies as well.
I work with Alzhiemers in Gerriatrics,and started to pick up some Italian to talk to one of my patients.He can recall his native Italian if you get him started.And talking & thinking about Italian makes him very happy.He is over 90 so I enjoy seeing him smile & interact.I'll say some thing Italian & he tells me what I said,in english,then he starts using his Italian.Its a awsome feeling!
I found in the prosses I am learning some Italian too!!
Any way enough about that good luck with your studies.

ok, let's see if we can stream some stuff in here =o)

you can use this as an usual windows media player, just wait some seconds for the preloading of each track and click play /stop/pause/skip etc... according to what you want to do.

tracklist
it's the same you can read above so I suggest that you cut and past Carla's posts so that you can read them while listening.
I have put all the tracks in a row but you still have to click play all the times to make a new one start.











if you can, try to download these files from Carla's storage links, especially if you think you'll need to listen to them offline too, at least my bandwidth won't be completely sucked up :D

buon ascolto!!!

Studente avanzato :
Ciao.

Prima di tutto, voglio salutarvi e dirvi che sono abbastanza felice di formare parte di questo sito di lingue straniere che ha dimostrato di essere ben utile e la sua orientazione come una ricerca linguistica è ragiunta uno scopo favorevole per tutti gli utenti.

Ma mi chiedo adesso se la moderatrice Carla è ancora disponibile perchè secondo quello che ho visto l'ultima volta che lei ha partecipato è stato nell 2006. Mi sembra che questo forum già non abbia attività oppure suoi membri hanno deciso di non scrivere di piu. Se sono sbagliato forse qualcuno mi possa dire il contrario.

Mi piacerebbe molto si Carla potessi fare la registrazione di alcune storie infantili come "cenerentola o il gatto con gli stivali", quello sarebbe ben utile per quelli che già siamo avanzati sulla lingua.

Saluti.
