Pronunroid - IPA pronunciation


★★★★★

Pronunroid is an educational game that makes practicing English phonetics more fun!

It's aimed at practicing IPA (International Phonetics Alphabet) transcription of English words using General American accent. It has four main parts:

* Guess symbol: In this game, you are presented with three words that share a phonetic symbol which you have to guess.

* Guess pronunciation: In this game you are presented with a written word and you have to write the pronunciation for it in IPA.

* Guess spelling: In this game you are presented with the pronunciation of a word in IPA and you have to write the corresponding word. This, in addition to training your pronunciation skills, trains your spelling!

* Look up word: This function looks up the IPA pronunciation of a word.

Pronunroid is aimed at English as second language (ESL) learners. You can check out the symbols used at Wikitionary.

Right now, Pronunroid uses for the games the 2000 most common English words. However, you can try to look up the pronunciation of any word with the search feature. If Wordnik is aware of different pronunciations, you will get them all.

Offline Could be better if the transcriptions were already part of the app rather than needing connection.

Needs RP and other accents Apart from multiple accent support, it would be nice to hear the phoneme upon pressing the letter, to further reinforce the association between the symbol and the sound.

Good for students Fun and informative app for those taking linguistics at a university level. Noted the transcriptions are definitely not Canadian centric but that's is not a big deal if you are aware of that. Could be better if the transcriptions were already a part of the app rather than needing internet connection. Still great.
