    Try to do it yourself, using a dictionary. Post your attempts here, and we'll comment/correct/help.

    Re: Phonemic transcription

    Doesn't this request conflict a bit with your earlier answer:
    Not 'do' my work. Rather to comment if I have done it correctly or help to point out the mistakes.

    Howdy!

    /ju:'nɑɪtɪd/ /steɪts/ /ɒv/[(unstressed) əv] /ə'merɪkə/------>United states of America
    /nɑɪts/-Knights
    /wɔːkt/-walked
    /hɑʊzɪz-houses
    /wɒtʃɪŋ-watching(Well, I'm not sure if there's a stress part in this word)

    Tell you what? I think you should give it a shot before posting any thread!^-^So, you can learn more about PHONETICS..hehe
