オグデン850語

英国の言語学者オクデンによって、選ばれた850語です。1930年代に公表されました。オグデンはこれらの語彙を運用すれば、ビジネスの場面において必要になる伝えたいことを表現できることを示しました。ここでは、発声発音練習用に利用します。意味は分からなくてもよいので、これら850語を発声発音できますか。出来なければ、まず、手元の英和辞典(高校時代のものでもよい)にこれら850語に印を付けます。そして、発音記号欄だけをみて、毎日15分の発声発音してください。最初はゆっくりいいでしょう。慣れるのにしたがって、最終目標の30分程度で850語を発声発音できるうようになったら、完璧です。
