Quiz: vowel pronunciation, part two
In the second half of our vowel quiz, we think about the ‘other’ 10 contrastive vowels of British English. Our dictionary pronunciations use special symbols to represent these, because the spelling often doesn’t tell us what vowel sound to make and can even be totally misleading!
In the quiz below we’ve grouped together words based on the Oxford English Dictionary pronunciations which share the same underlined vowel, but on each page there’s an imposter. Can you identify the odd-one-out from each of these groups?
