The Use of Pronunciation Symbols.
The use of pronunciation symbols is investigated in this paper, with emphasis on the pronunciation symbols used by the Rules of Correspondence Activity and based on the conventions employed in linguistics, the agreement and variety of the pronunciation symbols commonly used in textbooks and dictionaries, and a suggested set of pronunciation symbols for possible use by the Southwest Regional Laboratory (SWRL) in nontechnical documentation. Three tables provide further information on the pronunciation symbols used by various sources, the stress symbols used by several sources, and the number of dictionaries and textbooks using pronunciation symbols.
