Tomato v. To-mot-to

Posted on: | by |

Do you find yourself avoiding discussions about U.S. Supreme Court cases for fear of a pronunciation faux pas? Fear those Eliza Doolittle moments no more because Yale Law School is on the case.

Current YLS students and a few grads have compiled the Pronouncing Dictionary. The Dictionary, which is arranged by case, provides you with the “difficult name” as well as a visual pronunciation and an audio pronunciation. If you are interested in the background and methodology, The Green Bag has an article about the Dictionary in its latest issue here . Should you not find the pronunciation that you are looking for, there is a way for you to send in suggestions on the site .
