Can Pronunciation Patterns help me remember the correct pronunciation of the words?
Pronunciation Patterns offers over one hundred pronunciation tips and phonics rules to help you understand the phonetic patterns existing in English words. Since English is a lingua franca, a mixture of many languages, there are exceptions to the rules. Nevertheless, the tips and rules offered in Pronunciation Patterns can help you remember the correct pronunciation of 80% of English words without using IPA. Here is one typical example: AI –When the letter A and the letter I are together, the letter I is silent as in the words MAIN, NAIL, AIL, etc. AIR — When the letter A, letter I and letter R are together, those letters create a diphthong in the words HAIR, AIR, LAIR, etc. You can learn this tip under the AI rule in the Rules section of Pronunciation Patterns for free.
