    Re: The pronunciation of English names!!!

    hello,

    What is the correct pronounciation of the famous writer Dryden?



    /draɪdən/ or /drɪdən/ or another variant?

    many thanks,
    Madox

    Kind regards,

    I think you should get the Longman Pronunciation Dictionary, they have so many names pronunciation, including people name, country name, location name, french name.......also have Amr English, British English and sometimes have french and italian original name pronunciation....I don't think online dictionary would provide these function....you may get this dictionary from the internet without paying money, of course I can't teach you how to get it....just find the way yourself.
