Pronunciation edit

-o͞od, /-uːd/, /-u:d/

RP: [ɵʉ̯]

American: [ʊu̯]

Australian: [ʉː]

Irish: [uː]

Notes edit

  • For more rhymes, add d, ed or 'd to some words at -uː.
  • In Scottish English, however, words in which -d is part of the word stem are pronounced /ʉd/ (e.g. crude), those in which it is an ending are pronounced /ʉːd/ (e.g. crewed). Such pairs accordingly constitute only impure rhymes.
