You made me jump!

you-made-me-jump

The interesting bit here is the way we pronounce the d of “made”. Because it’s followed by /m/, we make it with both lips, but be careful! Keep your lips closed between the two sounds. That’s why I’ve written a link between them. I hope that makes it clearer.

The phrase means “you startled me”, or You scared me”. It’s Hallowe’en tomorrow!
