Site of the Week: howjsay.com – A free online Talking Dictionary of English Pronunciation

Like This!

The tagline basically says it all. It’s an online dictionary that pronounces words for you. I thought this was a pretty cool resource, especially for those who could use more English help. It’s especially helpful because there are currently 132,358 entries in this dictionary. I haven’t listened to them all, but the ones I listened to seemed to be correct. There”s actually a cool FireFox plugin so you can just type in the word and it will pronounce it. You can add that by clicking here.

The site seems to be kind-of bare and without any flavor, and has way too many ads, but I guess they’ve taken the “Hey, it’s free – don’t complain” route, which is fine by me.
