– American English Pronunciation –

– ( Numbers ) –


 

An alphabetical pronunciation guide of The Common Tongue – a.k.a. – American English Pronunciation, containing the phonetic spellings of a vast selection of common and not-so-common words in the English language, with more added daily.

The pronunciations are not Universal as there are many different dialects of the English language, both world-wide and throughout America.  The pronunciations that are presented here are based upon a combination of both common usage and the most neutral accent used in The International Common Tongue.

 

It may seem that the entries in the boxes below are of a slightly chaotic nature, with the “randomness” of the numbers added. This is because the entries are added as they come up in lessons with my students.
