متن ترانسکریپت ویدیو
There are tons of words in the English language that are similar but not the same and I’ve been creating a whole lot of lessons about them lately, particularly some of the really confusing ones. Now you can check out all of the ones I’ve already made in that playlist right up there but today we’re going to focus on two words that are often confused and misused, than and then.
Now I’m Emma from mmmEnglish and if these two words confuse you, then this lesson is for you and even if you think that you know what they mean and how to use them correctly, it’s worth just sticking around to check. I’ll explain how they’re used in English, how they’re pronounced, and of course, we’ll practise with a little quiz at the end to make sure that everything you learned during the lesson has stuck.
And remember that all of my lessons have subtitles or captions and you can turn them on by clicking that settings button just down there. And so many of my students, my amazing students who are generous enough to share some of their time for all of you, they have been writing subtitles in their own native languages so that more of the people from their country can watch and learn and experience the lessons on the mmmEnglish Channel so if you’ve got time and you’re up for the challenge to write some of the captions in your own native language, I would absolutely appreciate it.
And look, I know you’ve been watching my lessons for a little while now so if you haven’t subscribed already, I think it’s time to do it.
To start this lesson, I want to make something really clear. Than and then are not the same words even though they look similar and they sound quite similar, they have different meanings and uses. And I have to admit that these two words had me fooled for a long time at school. Through school, I was forever using the wrong word and I was getting marked incorrect by my teachers all the time. It took years for me to remember.
And part of the problem is that these words sound quite similar. They both use the voiced th sound. And we can hear a little difference in the vowel sound when these words are stressed in a sentence and sometimes they are. But actually, most of the time, these words are unstressed and then they sound really similar because both of those vowels sounds reduce down to the schwa sound. Then we can’t hear any difference at all.
Now the closest that I ever came to a rule for this was than with an A is used for comparisons and then with an E is used for time. It helped me a little in the end so if you find it helpful to try and remember that rule, especially to use those words correctly in sentences, then go ahead.
Now let’s go a little deeper and I think we’ll start with than because there’s only one basic definition and use for than. So than is a conjunction and we use it to make comparisons. So when we’re highlighting the difference between two separate things.
