What is IPA?
The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) is an alphabetic system of phonetic notation.
The IPA spelling system (phonetic transcription) is more reliable than the English spelling system because the spelling of an English word does not tell you how you should pronounce It.
Linguists designed IPA to be unambiguous: every symbol has only one pronunciation. When you read a word in IPA, you'll know exactly how to pronounce it.
Why should I learn IPA ?
The IPA is used by lexicographers, foreign language students and teachers, linguists, speech-language pathologists, singers, actors, constructed language creators and translators.
Every aspiring polyglot should learn to read the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). It's a powerful tool when learning any language.
What's the challenge?
However, many people find phonetic symbols, which are the ABC’s of transcription, bizarre and hard to comprehend.
How this app makes a difference ?
This remarkable app changes, in big way, the experience of learning IPA. It basically transforms the experience from boring to very engaging by making learning and practicing addictive.
