English pronunciation - s sound and z sound - YouTube
Please forward this to President Obama.
His pronunciation of these sounds distracted me greatly form the message of his jobs talk today.
His grammar and understanding of meanings is magnificent, but I find his pronunciation distracting.
He seems to pronounce 'his' as 'hiss'. I like to hear the 's' sound in 'sounds' as a buzz not as a hiss. The 's' in the 'jobs' I love is buzzed not hissed.
