- Pronunciations are given with an easy respelled phonetic transcription, with no difficult notations as in dictionaries or the International Phonetic Alphabet.
- Syllables are separated by dashes.
Syllables that are stressed/accented are capitalized.
Example for Seattle: see-AT-ull
Syllables enclosed in quotation marks denotate a sound that is represented by a common English word. This
method is used if it seems more clear or helpful than an awkward transcription. Examples:
Pronunciation for Ai:
Pronunciation for Knightley:
One or more names can be entered in the search box
Example: Mark John Ben
For the pronunciation of a specific individual's name enter the full name
Example: Karol Wojtyla
