Each unit begins with a dialogue or conversation, which the learner is first supposed to listen to or read carefully. Then he is helped to understand it with the help of a few leading comprehension questions, and a functional glossary. After he has done so, he is led through several useful points of pronunciation and is given adequate practice in them.
Then he attends to one communicative function, which forms a prominent part of the passage. He is also expected here to work out one or two exercises so that he will perform the function efficiently.
Finally, he is taken through one or two points of usage arising from the passage and useful for everyday colloquial English. Each dialogue or conversation is available on an audio-cassette, which forms an integral part of the book. The style of the recording is 'careful colloquial', which is the style recommended for most non-native speakers of English. While teaching pronunciation in each unit, this fact has been consistently kept in mind.
The learner is particularly advised to imitate the general tempo i. Some of the points discussed under 'Speaking' in each unit may not quite apply to the 'rapid colloquial' style of speaking, which is generally used by native speakers of English. It is partly for this reason that the authors decided to record 'standard' Indian speakers rather than native speakers of English as 'models'.
The second reason for not recording native speakers is that no Indian speaker, or for that matter no non-native speaker, can or needs to speak English the way it is spoken by native users. After all, the best one can do is to speak English like the best of non-native speakers.
The book is addressed to all those learners who know the structure of English but cannot communicate effectively, especially in speaking. No other qualification is necessary as a pre-condition for using the book.
And the aim of the book is to improve their colloquial usage and pronunciation so that they may be able to communicate somewhat fluently, intelligibly, and optimally. The knowledge of phonetic symbols provided in 'Signs and Symbols' at the beginning of the book is, however, obligatory, since almost every dictionary today records pronunciations in such symbols.
The key in 'Signs and Symbols' is self-explanatory and easy to follow, and it is expected that any motivated learner will be able to understand the values of signs and symbols given in it. A sincere attempt has been made to meet the requirements of the group of learners for whom the book is meant. Nevertheless, the authors lay no claim to perfection, and there must ever be scope for improvement in a book of this kind. Practical suggestions for its possible improvement will therefore be welcome.
Listen to it two or three times. TWO Now, open the book. Try to answer the questions; you may not be able to answer all of them. Do not worry. Study the footnotes if any , and the meanings of words and expressions given in Section III. Now, try again to answer the questions in Section II. Study Section IV: Speaking.
It'd be three rupees fifty paise1 by letter post, and two rupees twenty-five paise by parcel post. It might be quicker. Anything else I can do for you?
Could you weigh this letter, please? It'll cost you one rupee forty paise. Here're the stamps for the parcel and the letter. Will you affix them, please? But wait a minute, please. Let me first give you the receipt forthe parcel. Here's the receipt. And here's the postal stationery. Can I leave the parcel there on the desk in front of you? But put the letter in the box over there. Thank you very much. If you are using the cassette, listen to the dialogue two or three times.
In writing, this will be: Rs. Read the dialogue again when you are not sure of the answer. Who are they? Do we know? What are they? Look carefully at the spelling of the word stationery. Compare it with the word stationary, which sounds similar to the first word, but is different in meaning. Stationary means 'not moving'. Play the dialogue again on your cassette and listen to it. Note the way these words are said: want cost box Listen carefully to the vowel sound in the words.
Practise this sound with the help of the following words. The syllable containing this sound is italicized if the word has more than one syllable. Listen to the dialogue again. Note carefully the pronunciations of the following words. One of the syllables in each word is accented, that is, emphasized or made prominent.
You must have noted that these words are said like this: ru'pees 'envelopes 'minute af'fix re'ceipt The vertical mark or stroke that precedes a syllable means that that syllable is accented. You must have also noticed that the letterp in the word receipt is not pronounced: p is silent in the word. You may find it a useful exercise to consult your dictionary and write down the pronunciations of all the words given in 2a. For help, you may consult 'Signs and Symbols' given at the beginning of this book.
Study this sentence: Counter Clerk: It'd be three rupees. But in speaking, we do not usually say the full form. Instead, we use the contracted form It'd.
Listen once again to the dialogue. Pay special attention to the pronunciation of the following contracted forms.
Their full forms are given in brackets. Now note the pronunciations of the following contracted forms, and practise saying them correctly. Full form Contracted form Contracted form Pronunciation he would he had he'd hi:d I would I had I'd aid we would we had we'd wi:d he is he's hi:z she is she's fi:z V. The following sentences are from the dialogue between Michael and the Counter Clerk at the post office. Read them. Wait a minute, please. In sentence 2 , the Cleik is making a request to Michael—he is asking Michael to stick the stamps on the letter.
The Clerk is asking Michael to wait a little, in sentence 3. In our daily lives, we ask people to do something or other for us. We ask them politely and they will help us readily and cheerfully. A request is a polite way of asking people to do something for us. Let us study some common ways in which we can make requests in English. Give me some money. Will you lend me some money, please? Can you lend me some money, please? Could you lend me some money?
Do you think you could lend me some money? Would you mind lending me some money? You will have noticed that 1 above is the least polite way of making a request, and 8 is the most polite. In between, 2 to 7 are arranged in order of increasing politeness. Suppose you want to make the following requests. Choose the most appropriate ways from 1 to 8 in b above. Examples: 1 Ask your friend to close the window.
Answer: Could you close the window? Answer: I should be grateful if you could give me a certificate of character. Ask your servant to buy some postage stamps. Ask your uncle to lend you his umbrella. Ask your little brother to lend you his bicycle. Ask your father to post a letter. Ask your mother to buy something from the market. Study these sentences: A You can weigh these letters.
B Can you weigh these letters? Sentence A states a fact; it is called a 'statement'. Sentence B asks something; it is a 'question'. Have you noticed the difference in their word-order? Let us study a few examples of statements and questions. A She will come back this evening.
A You are angry. A They have arrived. Turn the following statements into questions. Say them aloud or write them down. We can start now. The boys will leave soon.
They were late yesterday. She has finished her work. He is very clever. What's your trouble? Have had a lot of pain in the stomach for several days. I've also had severe headaches for over two days. I don't feel like eating anything. I feel full up all the time. I've also had a bad taste in the mouth sincc I've been sick. Give me your wrist, please. There's nothing wrong with the pulse. Now take off your pullover. And your shirt too. Loosen your clothes a little. I'll examine you, if you lie down on that couch.
Do you feel any pain here? You may get dressed now. I'm prescribing two kinds of tablets. Take one before meals. And the other after meals for three days. Don't eat any fried or spicy food. Drink milk and have. And do take some rest. Just take it easy and have rest whenever you can.
Come and see me if the trouble does not go quickly. Is the patient a man or a woman? Play the dialogue again and listen to it.
Note the way these words are said: pain days taste take stay Listen carefully to the vowel sound in the following words. The syllable containing this sound is printed in italics if the word has more than one syllable.
Note carefully the pronunciations of these words: exactly problem examine headache appetite temperature prescribe trouble Each of these words has more than one syllable or part. Note the pronunciations, written in phonetic symbols, of the following words. Write down the pronunciations of the remaining five words given in Section 2 above in phonetic symbols and say them correctly.
Listen again to the dialogue. Pay special attention to the pronunciations of the following contracted forms. I've I have haven't have not what's what is that's that is there's there is Their pronunciations, written in phonetic symbols see 'Signs and Symbols' at the beginning of this book , are: aiv 'hffivnt WDtS daets 4b.
Now note the pronunciations of the following contracted forms and practise saying them correctly. At the beginning of the dialogue, the patient and the doctor meet. What do they say to each other? At the end of the dialogue, the patient leaves the doctor after the consultation. When two people meet, they greet each other. They tell each other that they are happy to see each other.
In our own language, we use 'namaste' or a word which means the same. It is used before noon, before lunch time. After that, people greet each other, saying 'Good evening', until bed-time. They are used between strangers, or by people who meet in official or business situations—like the patient and the doctor in our dialogue.
When relatives or friends meet, they use more informal ways of greeting. Hullo in writing, two more spellings are used: Hello and Hallo : This form of greeting is used between friends and relatives.
It is also used for starting a conversation on the telephone, or to answer a telephone call. When people take leave of each other, they usually say 'Goodbye!
Between friends, the common way of leave- taking is 'Bye' and 'Bye-bye! Some people say 'Cheerio! But these are very informal expressions. What will you say in the following situations? Listen to the patient talking to the doctor. He's saying: I haven't been feeling well lately. In these sentences, the patient is talking about something that is NOT happening. Such sentences are called 'negative' sentences. This sentence is called a 'positive' sentence. Let us now compare the two types of sentences: A I have been feeling well.
As you know, 'n't' is the short form of 'not'. Let us look at a few more examples of negative sentences. Turn the following sentences into the negative. What can I do for you? Over here, if you don't mind. We have an excellent range of shirts in terycot. These striped ones are new arrivals. But nowadays. Are you sure, madam? I'm sure. Plus taxes. Would you like to try it on?
Could you gift-wrap it? You see, it's a gift to my husband on his birthday! Later Here it is! I've stuck on it a little card saying 'Happy Birthday! Call again. If you are using the cassette, listen to the dialogue carefully two or three times.
Is the shop assistant a man or a woman? Who is it for? Is the customer happy? Note the vowel sound only in the first syllable of the second word. You must also have noticed that the letter r in all the above words is silent. The syllable containing the sound is put in italics if the word has more than one syllable. Note carefully the pronunciations of these words: afternoon synthetics excellent arrivals nowadays fifteen birthday husband You must have noted that these words are said like this: after'noon synthetics 'excellent ar'rivals 'nowadays fif'teen 'birthday 'husband 3.
Now write down the pronunciations of the remaining four words in 2 above in phonetic symbols. For help, you must consult 'Signs and Symbols' given at the beginning of this book. I'm I am they're they are don't do not Their pronunciations, given in phonetic symbols, are: aim 6ei3 daunt b.
Full form Contracted form Pronunciation you are you're jua we are we're wis does not doesn't 'dAznt did not didn't 'didnt V. She said: That's very kind of you, young man. But she was rather formal in doing so. She could have just said: Thank you! They are" neither very informal nor very formal. They can be used to thank strangers, and people who have helped you in an official capacity.
It is used mostly in writing. How do people accept thanks? Between close friends there is no need to say anything at all! But when you really want to say something, you can use one of the following expressions: a That's all right.
This is an informal way of accepting thanks. These expressions can be used in most situations. These are slightly formal expressions. Imagine that you are in the following situations. What wili you say to thank, or to accept thanks?
You are writing a letter thanking him. Study the following questions. What's the collar-size, madam? How much is it? Do you remember the questions we framed in Unit 1?
They were: Can we start now? Will the boys leave soon? Compare the two types. A What can I do for you? B Can I help you? Question A starts with the word 'What'. Question B does not use any such word. Let us look at a few more questions of the A type. Where are you going? When are you leaving? How far is the place? Which is faster, the train or the bus? Who is your companion? A part of the verb comes before the subject. Who or Which just takes the place of the subject.
Roshan is my companion. Ask the questions that will get you the following answers. Begin the question with the words given in brackets. We can start at 10 o'clock. What time? We can stay at the Taj. My uncle will give us the money. It will cost us a fortune! How much? We are going by train. Why don't we come to the market more often? I want to come here every day.
Who stops you? You have nothing better to do. I didn't say I will come here every day; I said I want to come here. Let's quickly do the shopping and go home. The children must be getting impatient. We'll first buy toiletries and groceries and then go to the vegetable stall. Let's go to the department store next door. Can you tell us where the groceries are? And the toiletries? And for the toiletries, just turn left and you walk right into them. Please make me the bill quickly. Here's the bill.
Some of them are even rotten. You should've thrown them away. In fact, yesterday the wholesale market was closed, and so we couldn't bring in fresh supplies. The second half of the conversation takes place in one part of the market. Where does it take place? Why doesn't she? Each department sells a different kind of goods, stale: not fresh IV. Play the conversation again and listen to it.
The syllable containing the sound is put in italics, that is, in a slanting type if the word has more than one syllable. You must also have noticed that the letter r is silent in all the above words. Listen to the conversation. Note carefully the pronunciations of these words: market enjoyable impatient groceries vegetable corridor wholesale yesterday Each of these words has more than one syllable.
You must have noted that these words are said like this: 'market enjoyable im'patient 'groceries 'vegetable corridor 'wholesale 'yesterday The vertical mark or stroke indicates that the following syllable is accented. Note the pronunciations, given in phonetic symbols, of the following words.
Now write down the pronunciations of the remaining four words in 2 in phonetic symbols. Listen once again to the conversation. At the market Janaki complained about the rotten vegetables.
The clerk at the counter apologized. She said: Sorry, madam. When we have caused trouble to someone, we want to apologize to the person. The most common way of doing this is to say: I'm sorry. Let us study a few expressions that can be used for apologizing, a Sorry: This is very informal, and is used to apologize for small things, b I'mexpression This sorry: can be used in most situations.
I can't tell you how sorry I am. These are rather formal expressions of apology. What does one do when someone apologizes to him? Normally, he accepts the apology and tells the person not to feel sorry about what s he has done.
The following expressions are used to accept an apology. Don't worry. Not to worry. Don't worry about it. That's all right. Forget it! What do you say in the following situations, in order to apologize or to accept an apology? You are writing a letter of apology to the librarian, d You knocked down an elderly lady, while your were riding a bicycle on a busy road, e A fellow passenger stepped on your toe in the bus and apologized to you.
Study the following sentences. They are spoken by Janaki and Surendra in the market. I don't find it a very enjoyable place. I didn't say I will come here every day. But that doesn't mean you should sell rotten vegetables. All the sentences above are 'negative' sentences.
In Unit 2 At the Doctor's , we discussed one way of forming negatives. The examples were: I haven't been feeling well lately. We aren't ready. They won't call us back. This can't be done easily. In these examples, we added not n't directly to the verbs. Positive Negative I have. I have not haven't. We are. We are not aren't. They will. They will not won't. This can. This cannot can't.
We can add not n't directly to the verb, if the verb is one of the following. But look at the following sentences. I find it a very enjoyable place. I said I would come here every day. But that means you should. The verbs in these sentences are: find, said and means. Look at the list of 'helping verbs' in the box above. Are these verbs 'helping verbs'? No, they are not. So, we cannot add not n't directly to the verbs.
What do we do, then, to form negatives? Positive Negative I find. I do not don't find. I said. I did not didn't say. We have used do, does and did, and added not to them. Study a few more examples: a.
We know the answer. She knows how to swim. You tried very hard. You're late by three days. I'm afraid you'll have to pay the fine.
