- Strathclyde. The IPA on Wikipedia doesn't help. I have no idea how to pronounce this. PseudoSkull (talk) 03:01, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
- I added the pronunciation for the English word as per Merriam-Webster; it looks like the pronunciation you're referring to is for Srath Chluaidh, not Strathclyde. I created an entry for it and copied over the IPA, but good luck finding someone to pronounce that correctly... Pariah24 22:47, 29 July 2017 (UTC)
- ancora and ancora (Italian) please record a file for each of the two etymologies (Etymology 1=Stress:àncora; Etymology 2=stress: ancóra), for easier learning by non-native speakers, for the distinction between the two allophones of the letter "o" (the "o" in the etymology 1 is slightly different from the one of the etymology 2) and the three allophones of the letter "a" (the pronucniation of the first "a" of the etymology 1 is the same of the second "a" of the etymology 2, the second "a" of the etymology 1, instead, is slightly different in tone (slightly lower), and the first "a" of the etymology 2 is more similar to the IPA phoneme "ʌ" in the English "cup"). --DelvecchioSimone12 5 96 (talk) 12:57, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
- Furcoax edit: made an acc; can anyone pronounce à á â ä æ ã å ā for me? thanks.
- Please create the missing audios in Appendix:Pronunciation list of English words, (I have manually checked for missing audios for the former list, so those in red links do not have an audio yet.) and may be also for its extended version.
Also, it would be very awesome if one can create a continuous pronunciation audio for all terms in Wiktionary:Frequency_lists#Wikipedia in the way it is ordered! :) (example) Vis M (talk) 03:45, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
