Talk a Lot Clear Alphabet Dictionary Introduction e.g. make = Meik, day = Dei, change = Cheinj, etc. Is the Clear Alphabet better than the IPA? i zth Kliy Ral f be_ Be t thn thii Yai pii yei? From Talk a Lot Foundation Course: The current IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) was invented in the nineteenth century by French and British linguists. The IPA can be helpful in some situations, for example if a student takes the time to learn it they will be able to accurately pronounce any word in the dictionary. When teaching language – and especially pronunciation – we do need a way of representing sounds on a page, but the current IPA is no longer fit for purpose in the Digital Age, because it cannot be easily reproduced on a keyboard or mobile phone keypad. Just try sharing a document that uses IPA symbols and you will see what I mean. Everybody needs to buy a new font – which does not happen. So we need a new phonetic way of writing. Another problem with the IPA is that students have to learn a whole new alphabet of around fifty new characters. Students are often put off by the unfamiliar and exotic-looking symbols that they have to learn, which only adds an extra burden for students – especially those whose first language does not always use the Roman alphabet, e.g. those whose first language is Arabic, Russian, Chinese, etc. They already have to learn one new alphabet to learn English; then we try to add a second. It’s no wonder the IPA is put on the back burner. For example, let’s compare this earlier sentence in the Clear Alphabet with its equivalent in the IPA: Normal spelling: I don’t like living in a small flat. Clear Alphabet spelling: ai Deun_ Lai Kli ving i n Smorl Flat. IPA spelling: /~fDÇÉìå\Dä~fDâäfKîfÏKfKåDëãlWäDÑäôíL= While Clear Alphabet spelling takes some learning and getting used to, it is far easier and more intuitive to learn than the IPA because the letters are already familiar, and has the added bonus of showing the stressed syllables – the all-important sound spine – as well as normal punctuation marks. Is the Clear Alphabet a replacement for the current Roman alphabet? i zth Kliy Ral f be t r Plei smn_ f th Ku rn_ Reu m Nal f bet?

Talk a Lot Clear Alphabet Dictionary Introduction In Talk a Lot Foundation Course I have argued that, yes, it could be: We need a new written English alphabet. The old one (a, b, c, etc.) is not fit for purpose because it doesn’t contain enough letters (especially vowel letters) to adequately represent all of the 48 sounds of English. We cannot write phonetically – as we speak – with this alphabet. It allows us to write words, but we speak syllable by syllable, not word by word. It doesn’t show stressed syllables, but it is vital for us to know which syllables are stressed. It doesn’t show the “hidden” features of spoken English – schwas and glottal stops – but if we don’t use these features our pronunciation will be much worse, and communication will be reduced. The old written alphabet has 26 letters – but there are 48 sounds in English. The old written alphabet has 5 vowel letters – but there are 23 different vowel sounds in English. [The Clear Alphabet] provides the remedy to both problems, because it allows us to write phonetically, representing the sounds we make when we speak. It is a true alphabet. It also clearly shows individual syllables, stressed syllables, schwas, and glottal stops. How many words are there in the dictionary – and how were they chosen? Hau Me nii Wer dz th rin th Di kshn rii – yn Hau w thei Cheu zn? The dictionary contains just over 2,000 common words and phrases, so it is not intended to be an exhaustive dictionary along the lines of a major English dictionary. Also, there are no definitions – just words in the Clear Alphabet and in normal spelling. However, the dictionary certainly contains enough terms for anyone to be able to understand and learn how the Clear Alphabet works and how it can be used to represent sounds in a word or sentence. The terms were chosen from a wide range of sources, with the focus on high-frequency words: • Talk a Lot Elementary Books 1-3 discussion words and sentence block verbs • Talk a Lot Intermediate Book 1 discussion words, sentence block verbs, and a selection of common idioms & slang terms • Oxford English Dictionary Corpus top 100 words in written English 2 • The Dolch Basic Site Vocabulary 220 frequently used words 3 • Top 20 Phrasal Verbs my own list 4 • Big Grammar Book basic words from Essential English pages • …Words You Must Know (series) common word list: nouns, verbs, adjectives, function words 5 2 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Most_common_words_in_English [accessed on: 04.08.12] 3 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolch_word_list [accessed on: 04.08.12] 4 http://www.scribd.com/doc/64293397/Tali1-20-Basic-English-Phrasal-Verbs [accessed on: 04.08.12] 5 For example: http://www.scribd.com/doc/69123367/100-Common-English-Adjectives-You-Must-Know-Part-1 [accessed on: 04.08.12] For more fun worksheets, games, and quizzes log onto englishbanana.com now!
