Hi, Today I am going to discuss the topic related to pronunciation for Were and Where. 

You may be wondering what it is. I found here in Maharashtra, India. Most people mispronounce it. I want to make sure that, if you have this problem you can rectify it.

What is Were?

We use ‘were’ to talk about something related to the past with the pronouns like I, You, We, They.

What is Where?

We use ‘where’ to ask where the destination or location is.

Yes, the pronunciation is different for both.

The phonetic transcription of Were is wɜː and Where is weə.

If we pronounce it without attention to the details, the native speaker or even English speaking person may not be able to understand it.

I would appreciate if you could just share or comment on this.

Thank you.

  1. Thanks for sharing all this information on how nursing homes can benefit the elderly. I like that you mentioned all the specialized equipment and training the staff have. If something were to happen to my grandmother, I would feel helpless. Maybe I should look into getting her into one of these homes were she can be better taken care of. Dominic Kibbey

  2. WP Rentals can benefit both hosts and travelers. Hosts get to meet people from around the world while making a little extra money, and travelers can often stay for less than the cost of a hotel room. In addition, many travelers enjoy accommodations that offer a different experience from standard hotels. Isaiah Jolissaint
