Notes on words

  • Phonemic transcriptions are in IPA symbols.
  • Different spellings of identical words are grouped with parentheses.
  • Symbols, numbers/letters are in brackets.
  • There is some ambiguity over homophones since there are different pronunciations of words.

Notes on inclusion

  • Contracted words are included.
  • A few double-words are included. (A word can sound like two words in sequence)
  • Plural nouns, and tensed verbs are included.
  • Some well known proper names (first or last) are included, although this allows endless additions.
