I wonder how an American pronounces…
recipe … receipt … prescription
/ˈrɛ-sə-piy/ … /rɪ–ˈsiyt/ … /prɪ–ˈskrɪp–ʃən/
instructions for making something
(such as a food dish) by combining various things
My mother never used a written
recipe for making plum dumplings.
In fact, I never saw her use
a recipe for cooking anything.
the recipe for success
What do we have
to do in order to succeed?
a piece of paper on which the things that you buy are listed
with the total amount paid and the prices for each
related to the verb ‘receive’
note: the written p is not pronounced
a written message from a doctor
that officially tells someone to use a medicine.
fill a prescription
You get a prescription filled by a
pharmacist at a pharmacy or drugstore.
Is that prescription medicine or
can you get those pills over-the-counter,
without a prescription?
