Pronouncing a person's name As administrator of the VOA Pronunciation Guide, I am constantly asked to provide the "correct" pronunciation of a person's name. Phrased as such, the question implies that there is only one "correct" way, to the exclusion of all others. How do we know what is "correct"? Were it a perfect world, we would endeavor to carefully interview each person whose name we wish to learn how to pronounce. Even then, opinions will vary. With this in mind, please be aware that every entry in the VOA Pronunciation Guide database is a compromise, to one degree or the other. Pronouncing a place name At VOA, we treat people and place names differently. However, for place names, we rely upon the Merriam Webster Geographic Dictionary as a first source.

Problem areas Significant confusion can occur when Merriam Webster's Geographic Dictionary lists more than one pronunciation for a place name. The guide is not intended to be a language teaching tool. Jim Tedder July 2003. ABC Services - Podcasts. English as a Second Language Podcast. Listening : Downloadable MP3 Files.
