For vous…

Written By: Usree Bhattacharya on January 26, 2009 2 Comments

I discovered a really cool multilingual wiki (pronouncing) dictionary called Forvo.com. The site contains pronunciations of over a hundred thousand words in 207 languages.

Check it out! 🙂

    Very cool to see how they have a ‘crowdsourced’ pool of pronunciation data where individual multilingual users armed with their onboard mics add to the corpus…though does that mean that people are going to be out there policing each other’s pronunciation??

    ok that is ridiculously awesome. They even had banal! The rating system is great, it helps filter out the more uncommon pronunciations.
