Phonetic Transcription Exercise

Below is the exercise of phonetic transcription from antimoon.com. It is very important for those who learn English to read this.

Demonstration of phonetic transcription

This page shows you how to read and write the phonetic transcriptions of English words. Dictionaries use phonetic transcriptions to tell you how you should pronounce words.
All the transcriptions on this page are written in the phonemic system used in most dictionaries for English learners. They use symbols of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). All the pronunciations are written with "universal" (British-American) symbols, but are spoken in American English. For example, their is transcribed as /ðeəʳ/, and the r sound is heard in the recording.
For more information, look at the table with English sounds and IPA symbols. Instructions: Play the sound samples (Flash required), listen to the words, and read the transcriptions.
