Online English Pronunciation Free Classes with Damilola. Do you want to avoid ambiguity when speaking & be understood in personal & work life? Work with me towards better pronunciation of English words by understanding where and how we produce sounds for accuracy. This week pronunciation titbit: “Enough.” A lot of Nigerians pronounce this word in a way that's different from its accurate pronunciation. They tend to pronounce this word as “e-nor-fu.” Native speakers pronounce it “a-nu-f” /i’nʌf/. Because of the confusing nature of English spelling, I suggest you start thinking of English pronunciation in terms of phonemes rather than letters of the alphabet.
