2.2.11. tr/dr

tr/drtʃ/dʒ 不一样的地方在于,虽然发声时起始的舌尖位置相同,但,tr, dr 在发声之前嘴唇要有个缩小成圆形的动作,所以它们开头的音节,总是听起来夹带着一个 wtree /triː/ 听起来是 tʃwiːdry draɪ 听起来是 dʒwaɪ

The difference between the sounds tr, dr and tʃ, dʒ lies in the way they are pronounced. Although the initial tongue position is the same for both sets of sounds, with tr, dr, there's a slight rounding of the lips before voicing. As a result, the starting syllables often sound as if there's a w blended in. So, the word tree triː can sound like tʃwiː, and dry draɪ can sound like dʒwaɪ.

很多地区的人基于自身母语的习惯,会把 trdr 分开着连续读出的。比如,tree,印度人可能会把它读成 tɤ.riː,其中的 t 干脆读成 d,并且 r 还会用齿龈颤音;再比如,driver,可能会被俄罗斯人读成 dɤ.raɪvə,其中的 r 同样会用齿龈颤音。

People from many regions, guided by the habits of their native languages, may pronounce tr and dr as separate, continuous sounds. For instance, someone from India might pronounce tree as tɤ.riː, with the t articulated as d, and the r as a voiced alveolar trill. Similarly, the word driver might be pronounced as dɤ.raɪvə by a Russian speaker, again using a voiced alveolar trill for the r.
