"The Spelling Blog is about anything to do with English spelling, but particularly the teaching and learning of it. It prides itself on taking a FRESH look at what some consider to be a fuddy-duddy (boring and old-fashioned) subject. The Spelling Blog aims to point you in some interesting directions, make you question received wisdom and give you tools for improving spelling - your own or someone else's. It's also there for people who just happen to be interested in spelling." Johanna Stirling
"This website is for teachers who want to develop their use of the Sound Foundations phonemic chart in their English language classroom, in order to make pronunciation an attractive and successful activity that integrates with and inspires all other language work."
"Welcome to the online atlas of Alexander J. Ellis's The Existing Phonology of English Dialects (EPED). The EPED, which was published in 1889, is our chief source of information of the phonetics and phonology (and much more besides) of traditional English and Scots dialects in the second half of the 19th century."
"Newton is a resource designed to help you recognise General British English nuclear tones. The set of nuclear tones used can be seen in the table below together with the notation used illustrated on the single syllable NO."

"Regular English Pronunciation is a suggestion for how English would sound if its pronunciation were logically connected to its spelling. Regular English Pronunciation is the antithesis of spelling reform as the solution to the problem of English spelling. Instead of changing our spelling, why not change our pronunciation? It wouldn't involve reprinting all books or breaking with the past. And pronunciation is in our hands, not in the hands of "authorities". All we have to do is to pronounce words the way they are spelled."
"We are pleased to announce the launch of a national initiative to collect the accents of 1000 Australian English speakers. Australian English accents from adults of all ages from various locations in all states and territories will be collected to represent the regional and social diversity of Australian English. "
"This paper focuses on the evolution of my awareness of the importance of teaching connected speech forms in ESL/EFL classrooms. It also includes my recent efforts to compile the literature on the topic and formulate the rules underlying continuous speech forms including such concepts as word stress, utterance stress and timing, elisions, reductions, insertions, intrusions, simple transitions, assimilations, contractions, and combinations of all of the above." James Dean Brown, University of Hawaii
