This is the British English phonetic chart. It is the chart that I will be using in these videos. It is also called the IPA chart. IPA is an acronym for the International Phonetic Alphabet. The symbols in the chart were developed by the International Phonetic Association as the standardized way of representing the sounds of spoken language.
The full IPA chart has over 160 symbols representing all of the distinct sounds of all the world’s languages. Our British English IPA chart uses forty-four of the IPA symbols.
Each symbol in the chart represents a distinct sound in English. It is important that you can distinguish between each of the different sounds on the chart and that you can accurately reproduce them. This ability will help you to better understand British English pronunciation and will also help you if you need to look up the pronunciation of any English word in a dictionary.
The boxes at the top right of the chart are used to show strong and weak stresses and the five basic intonation patterns in spoken English. English is a stress-based language and getting the stresses right while speaking is an essential skill to master for good pronunciation and for making yourself understood.
