WANT is always followed by TO, WON’T is never followed by TO
Also true. 🙂👍
(I think Luca’s question was concerned with the pronunciation.)
I know that Luca’s question was about the pronunciation, I wanted just to suggest that we recognize the correct word in English many times by the construction of the sentences rather than by their sound when they are very similar. CAN and CAN’T trouble me the most, since there is no construction that helps, and confusing them compromises seriously our comprehension.
CAN and CAN’T is a problem for native speakers, too, especially when they are follwed by a verb beginning with ‘t’!
But remember that CAN in the affirmative is pronounced ‘cn’ and takes no stress. In the negative the sound is longer (either ‘a’ or ‘ah’) and it does take stress. In this cade it is the intonation that helps.
I cn come. (single stress)
I can’t come. (double stress)
how can i understand the difference with “want” in the english spoken ?
want = wont (detto all’italiano)
won’t = wount (detto all’italiano) FONDAMENTALE è quel suono di ‘u’.
Domani metterò “won’t” nel canale di Pronuncia su Telegram:
