hi, i am compiling a new glossary of English words that show particular phonetic anomalies.

PROJECT

It's just 1500 words and the main work consists of inserting an IPA phonetic transcription for each entry. Collaborators should be fluent in English.

It's longer if done by just one person, but if shared with a number of collaborators it can be finished in a few days.

ADVANTAGES

Everyone willing to participate in the project will be listed among collaborators and a freeware version may be published on Proz.com / and on the internet /my linguists web site and distributed to members /schools/universities.

I plan to submit this work to IPA and other research bodies too.

If successful, this can be turned into a small dictionary software too. Based on my experience as ESL teacher, i believe there is good potential for that with Italian users.

If interested, please let me know. You can also get details by e-mailing me on Proz.com

Best Regards / Saluti,

Mauro Baglieri

Thank You Oct 6, 2004

Ciao Sabina,

And thank you for your interest in the project!! I'm sure that with a knowledge of IPA symbols and experience as an ESL teacher we can help each other out!

The 1500 entries are already listed in a Word document.

Please e-mail me directly to my mailbox by going to my profile page, for the .doc document and instruction for installing the phonetic font(s) provided by IPA and other foundation (free of charge)

Grazie di tutto e tanti cari saluti,

Mauro

P.S. Your information is safe with me and your e-mail will not be given away for any reason.
