This phonemic chart uses symbols from the International Phonetic Alphabet. IPA symbols are useful for learning pronunciation. The symbols on this chart represent the 44 sounds used in British English speech (Received Pronunciation or RP, an educated accent associated with but not exclusive to south-east England).
This version of the phoemic chart is based on the familiar Adrian Underhill layout. Learners and teachers may want to print a copy of this phonemic chart to keep close at hand for reference. See full size (will print on A4 or US Letter)
