Encyclopedia > List of names in English with counterintuitive pronunciations

This is a set of lists of English personal and place names whose pronunciations are counterintuitive to their spelling, either because the pronunciation does not correspond to the spelling, or because a better-known namesake has a markedly different pronunciation.


See International Phonetic Alphabet for English and Help:IPA English pronunciation key for guides to the IPA symbols used. See English Phonemic Representation for a guide to the enPR symbols used. For readability, a colon is used for the long vowel sign (ː) in the IPA pronunciation, as the latter displays awkwardly in some fonts and browsers, and ‘r’ is used rather than the more precise ‘ɹ’ since these are all words pronounced in English. The symbols of the International Phonetic Alphabet can be used to show pronounciation in English. ... The English Phonemic Representation (abbreviated enPR; sometimes referred to as the AHD system) is a wiktionary-specific system of phonetic notation based on the Latin alphabet as representation of the sounds used in pronouncing spoken English. ...
