3. PRONUNCIATION:


can
/kən/
can't
/ka:nt/

· can is usually unstressed /kən/ (short vowel) in + sentences like I can dance. If you stress can the listener may think you are saying a - sentence. (I can dance.)

· the negative can't is always stressed (I can't dance). If you don't stress it, you can cause a communication problem because the listener may understand can not can't. In British English it is usually pronounced /ka:nt/ (long vowel), although there are reginal variations.

· in interrogative questions can is stressed (Can you dance?), but if the sentence has a Wh- question can isn't stressed (What can you dance?).

· in short answers can / can't are stressed (Yes, I can. / No, I can't).


Es decir, un cuadro sobre la acentuación sería:
afirmative sentence
... can ...
negative sentence
... can't ...
interrogative
Can ...?
Wh- question
... can ...?
