From cinema to cities to sports, from places to people, hear how words and names are pronounced in their native tongue. In other words, “avoid the faux pas of mispronouncing the phrase ‘faux pas’” advises Finding Dulcinea.
Also help others hear words in your language by participating in this ambitious Me2We-style start-up project called Forvo. For yourself, type out a word you want to hear. For others, answer their query and pronounce words in your native tongue. So far Forvo has 104,429 words in 190 languages. About half of them already have audio pronunciations for us to hear. Thank you ever-fascinating VSL for this tip. If you are a word–lover then you’ll enjoy visiting these magnificent resources for us: Truespel, idioMeanings, The Rosetta Project and LingWiki.
