How do you say "one of those" or "one of them" fast or naturally? Is it "one uh those" or "one uh them " where 'uh' is the schwa and the 'v' sound is just skipped? When I try to say it myself I think that's what it is, but I couldn't find any sources to confirm, so, can anyone confirm this?
Without getting into regional dialects, I commonly hear the following in conversational English:
- One Of Them: we'll squash the words "one" and "of" together, softening the "f" to sound more like a "v", and hacking the "th" of *them" off completely for a final result that looks like "one of 'em."
- IPA: /wʌn əv ɛm/
- Spell: /wun uhv em/
- One Of Those: we'll squash the words "one" and "of" together, but instead of softening the "f" we hack it off completely, and leave the "th" of those intact, for a final results that looks like "one o' those."
- IPA: /wʌnɒ ðoʊz/ or /wʌnʌ ðoʊz/
- Spell: /wunna thohz/ or /wunnu thohz/
