You’re pulling my leg!

The pronunciation of “you’re” is exactly the same as “your”. This may surprise you. The transition from /ŋ/ to /m/ can be difficult, but we don’t change anything here. You just have to practice if it’s tricky. Remember /ŋ/ is made with the back of the tongue.

This means “I don’t believe you”, or “I think you’re joking.”
