English accent and usage. I am Dr. Frank Gerace. The third person singular of a verb, wow that sounds hard, it means when we are talking about someone else. Like, “the man goes to the house”, or “the lady drinks her coffee”. Just remember that all of these words have to end in S. Many people learning English learn bad; they are learning from their neighbors, they learn form their friends. Sometimes people say, “the man go” or “the man drink his coffee” – that’s wrong. If you’re talking about some one else, there has to be an S sound. Sometimes it sounds like “sssss”, sometimes is sounds like “zzzzz”- depends on the word. But just listen carefully: “The man doezzz things”, that’s a Z sound. Or, “the man drinkssss his coffee”. There’s a reason for the difference that I’ll tell you in another class, but learn the difference, it will help you with you accent.
