You’ve heard, no doubt, of train spotting, and maybe even plane spotting. Now’s your chance to indulge in vowel spotting. Years ago I wrote a couple of web pages to help people recognise vowel sounds from our somewhat unhelpful orthography, and to ram home the difference between spelling and sound. They are still around somewhere, I think.
Now I have completed a set of pages covering most of the vowels of General British English. You can find them here. There is also a link in the side-bar.
I would be very grateful, in a strictly non-monetary sense you understand, for any comments, corrections, etc. Please let your colleagues and/or students know about this if you think they may find it useful. I’ll be adding to the material from time to time.
