Overview


The Oxford Dictionary of Pronunciation, now published in paperback, is the most up-to-date record of the pronunciation of British and American English. Based on research by a joint UK and US team of linguistics experts, with support from Oxford English Dictionaries, it is a unique survey of how English is really spoken in the twenty-first century. The dictionary offers a full reappraisal of the pronunciation models for modern British and American English. Whereas other pronunciation dictionaries use a model which is rooted in the speech of the middle of the last century, this dictionary presents a model of actual, modern English. It is also the most comprehensive dictionary of its type available, and the only one to give full transcriptions for British and American English for every word.
