    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.
