For example, find words like piper where the first and last syllables begin with the "p" sound, and the last sound is ur as in piper.
Create a phonetic pattern and retrieve words that match those sounds. To create a phonetic pattern, choose symbols from the phonetic chart containing vowels, stops, fricatives, affricates, liquids, and glides.
Use the "Additional symbols" to match zero or more sounds, any single sound, consonant, or vowel sounds. For example, if you want to retrieve a list of words that have an alliterative "p" sound at the beginning of both first and second syllables, you can do it in either of two ways:
Once you have assembled your phonetic pattern, click the Search button to retrieve a list of words with that pattern.
You can limit your search according to the number of syllables in the words, how the words begin, and how many letters you want in the search results.
Choose which alternate pronunciation you want when you convert a word to its phonetic representation (e.g., when you type "read" do you want it pronounced "reed" or "red"?)
Save time brainstorming for words containing specific sound combinations. Quickly assemble data for minimal pairs, pronunciation exercises, phonics research, and other types of phonetic study.
Phonetic Finder is ideal for research, creating word-based products, or for creating lists of words for children that have trouble with certain sounds.
