PRONUNCIATION

R-COLORED VOWELS

There are many vocalists who sing in English and is normally the pronunciation of the “r-colored” vowels, but these would be suppressed if they are at the end ofthe phrase while they are singing in English.
To explain this fact, we take an example with a singer who use the “r-colored” vowels, and other who does not.

LeAnn Rimes is an American singer whoputs in practices the theory on the “r-color” in her songs.

Whereas, there are other vocalists who do not follow theguideline, because they do not use the r-colored vowels in songs or at the end of the phrases while they are singing, for example many Irish singers.

Céline Dion has born in Charlemagne, Quebec, Canada;and she sings in English and in French. She is a native speaker of Quebec French, and her English pronunciation is considered as an hypercorrection case. The hypercorrection is the incorrect usage ofa language considered by informed users, but the speakers usage try and want to seem it formal and educated (like prepositions at the end of clauses, incorrect usage of personal pronouns, etc.). Themost difference between Céline Dion and others singers is her pronunciation.

"Miracle"

You're my life's one Miracle,
Everything I've done that's good
And you break my heart with tenderness,And I confess it's true
I never knew a love like this till you...

You're the reason I was born
Now I finally know for sure
And I'm overwhelmed with happiness
So blessed to hold you close
Theone that I love most
With all the future has so much for you in store
Who could ever love you more?

The nearest thing to heaven,
You're my angel from above
Only God creates such perfect love...
