searchable English pronunciation dictionary

This is an English pronunciation dictionary which contains somewhat more than 70,000 items with RP transcriptions. The source of the dictionary file is Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary 3rd ed. (thanks to Dariusz Laska for telling me this after more than ten years of living in ignorance).

You can search the dictionary online.

I have found the dictionary quite reliable though there were (and probably still are) typos in it. If your find and send them, I'll correct them in the database.

This dictionary can be used to look up the pronunciation of individual words and also to find spelling regularities, phonotactic constraints, and the answer to questions like "how many English words begin with ð."
