Pronunciation Rules

Hello! Someone could say me where I can find a list of pronunciation rules on the web? I know that there aren't exhaustive ones, but I've read somewhere that exist about 100 rules and other 100 exceptions for English language and I would try to learn them. Do you think I am mad?

It depends on what you mean by "pronunciation rules".

I have a document that contains the "rules" I think you're looking for. I think you're asking about spelling and pronunciation. Is that it?

I found it online. I'll see if it's still there.

Is this what you're looking for?

You're welcome.

If you remember anything that is on a document you can't find, you can type the words in quotations and do a search. That's how I found it again. I only had the PDF document, not the page I got it from.

Re: Pronunciation Rules

I've found another document containing a larger set of pronunciation rules. Of course, it has exceptions too.

I attach the link for who is interested in this subject:
http://www.uni-greifswald.de/~anglam.../PronRules.pdf

If someone else run across similar documents (in every format) please write them down on this thread.

Re: ...oooops... : Pronunciation Rules

I'm sorry for reviving a very old thread, but the link provided here:

http://www.donpotter.net/PDF/Alphabe...20Sequence.pdf

Doesn't seem to work anymore. I've searched the Internet for this .pdf but I can't find it anywhere.

Could anyone somehow provide this pdf file? I would be really intersted in reading its content.

Thanks.

Strange - it works for me. It's quite a big download - nearly 3 Mb - so maybe your browser's got a time-out set too low (or maybe you're using a computer that doesn't allow downloads that big). Send me a PM.

Fabio: I wouldn't say your ambition was mad; a bit unrealistic, maybe.
