"I'm a loyal friend. Would you tell me the pronunciation of 'minute'? I am confused by /ˈmɪn.ɪt/ and /maɪˈnjuːt/. "
We all know the word 'minute'.
One minute ago, in two minutes, five minutes later...
But 'minute', pronounced in the same way, also has another meaning. Do you know what it is?
And pronounced /maɪˈnjuːt/ (like 'my newt') it has another meaning altogether!
Listen to the programme to find out about these other meanings.
