More Sheep To Count

A grandmother was watching her 8 year old granddaughter while her parents were out of town. The young girl was delaying bedtime, as usual, so her grandmother told her about counting sheep to fall asleep. The 8-year-old thought that was a good idea.

Everything was quiet for a while. But just as grandmother was dozing off herself, a little voice sounded:

"Grandma?"

"Yes?"

"There are 38."


More Sheep To Count

[mɔː ʃiːp tə kaʊnt]
Больше овец чтобы посчитать

A grandmother was watching her 8-year-old granddaughter
[ə ˈɡrænˌmʌðə wɒz ˈwɒtʃɪŋ hɜːr eɪt jɪər əʊld ˈɡrænˌdɔːtə]
Бабушка присматривала за своей восьмилетней внучкой,

while her parents were out of town.
[waɪl hɜː ˈpeərənts wɜː aʊt ɒv taʊn]
пока ее родители уехали из города.

The young girl was delaying bedtime, as usual,
[ðə jʌŋ ɡɜːl wɒz dɪˈleɪɪŋ ˈbedtaɪm æz ˈjuːʒʊəl]
Маленькая девочка оттягивала время ложиться спать, как обычно,

so her grandmother told her about counting sheep to fall asleep.
[səʊ hɜː ˈɡrænˌmʌðə təʊld hɜːr əˈbaʊt ˈkaʊntɪŋ ʃiːp tə fɔːl əˈsliːp]
поэтому ее бабушка сказала ей о подсчете овец, чтобы заснуть.

The 8-year-old thought that was a good idea.
[ðiː eɪt jɪər əʊld θɔːt ðæt wɒz ə ɡʊd aɪˈdɪə]
Восьмилетка подумала, что это хорошая мысль.

Everything was quiet for a while.
[ˈevrɪθɪŋ wɒz ˈkwaɪət fər ə waɪl]
Все было тихо какое-то время.

But just as grandmother was dozing off herself,
[bʌt dʒʌst æz ˈɡrænˌmʌðə wɒz ˈdəʊzɪŋ ɒf hɜːˈself]
Но когда бабушка уже начала сама дремать,

a little voice sounded:
[ə ˈlɪtl vɔɪs ˈsaʊndɪd]
тоненький голосок сказал:

"Grandma?"
[ˈɡrænmɑː]
"Бабушка..."

"Yes?"
[jes]
"Да?"

"There are 38."
[ðeər ə ˈθɜːtɪ eɪt]
"(Их) 38".

 

До встречи!
