How to pronounce the - English PronunciationThere are two ways to pronounce "the":- The first and most common one is short, and sounds like "thuh" Weak Weak pronunciation Sounds like "thuh". It rhymes with "duh" and if you say "mother" it rhymes with the "mo" and the "ther". As a general rule, we use the weak pronunciation with words that start with a consonant or words that begin with a vowel. For example: "The cat sat on the mat." Some words begin with a vowel, but are pronounced as if they begin with a consonant. For example: the word 'university' starts with a /j/ sound, which is a consonant. Strong The second is longer and sounds like "thee":- Strong pronunciation Sounds like "thee". It rhymes with pea, fee, me. We use the strong pronunciation with words that start with a vowel or sound as if they do. For example:- "the apple" "the end" "the hour" 'the ice' We also use the strong 'the' when we want to stress the word, regardless of whether it begins with a vowel or a consonant. For example:- "I spoke to Kevin Costner the other day.""
