comment How do you pronounce を after a subject?
Finally you agree on the pitch. you might want to edit your incorrect answer then. as for the pause, its not like we stop for 1 second. its simply a slight separation of sounds.

@sawa: Why is this an "extremely low quality question"? There's an example and it is very valid. I know for a fact that many people learning Japanese want to ask the same question.

comment How do you pronounce を after a subject?
Can we use Japanese words as examples? "ボー" should technically have 1 and unique long sound /o/ with no change in pitch. You're talking about dialects probably to give an English feeling. What about 帽子、大阪、大神。。。?

@TsuyoshiIto: I'm not saying を is not pronounced お. We all agree it is. But in the language I speak with my father there IS a pause or change in pitch in sentences like 日本語を. (and I don't believe it's not the case for you as well) In the comment above you say it's pronounced as 2 /o/. That's correct, we're saying the same thing. There's a pause between both sounds otherwise that would be a 'long' single /o/

comment How do you pronounce を after a subject?
You're wrong. (1) I said pause or change in intonation. There is no denying this. (2) "Ooh" is to give a correspondence to an international onomatopoeia. It's pronounced as an unique long /o/. There is a difference between ゴー! and 語を that is found in either a pause or a change of intonation. Are you saying you pronounce 日本語を and ゴー in the same way? That's hard to believe.

comment How do you pronounce を after a subject?
Yes because there's a slight cut in おお while おう is just a long "oh"

comment How do you pronounce を after a subject?
I believe that with a chōonpu, the vowel is elongated so that there is no difference in sound between both kana. However with を most often there is a brief "cut" or at least change of accentuation: 「尾を引く」In this way 日本語を is not pronounced にほんごー

@TsuyoshiIto: I see. Since they give no other reference than plain refutal I was very skeptical at first but I followed another link gogen-allguide.com/to/tonikaku.html that gives better arguments.
