Phonetic Pronunciation Tips
Pronunciations are given with an easy respelled phonetic transcription, with no 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.
Example for the name Ai: "eye"
Example for the name Knightley: "NIGHT"-lee
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
Multiple names can be separated by commas
Example: Wen Jiabao, Karol Wojtyla
Searches are case insensitive
