      Você já reparou que, in English, existem words que têm a mesma grafia (ou seja, são homographs), mas mudam de pronunciation e de significado conforme o context?
      Estas words são chamadas ‘heteronyms‘. Vamos conhecer some examples:

LIVE X LIVE

      E.g. 1: I live in a big house (Pronunciation: LÍIIV).

      E.g. 2: The band tocou live (= in real time). (Pronunciation: LAÍV).

 

RECORD X RECORD

      E.g. 1: Ele bateu o international record. (Pronunciation: RÉ-CORD).

      E.g. 2: Liga o gravador. Vamos record tudo o que ela disser. (Pronunciation: RI-CORD).

READ X READ

      E.g. 1: She loves to read books in the park. (Pronunciation: RIIID).

      E.g. 2: Ontem I read todos os posts da week. (Pronunciation: RÉD).
