    Re: Some IPA of names

    Hi teachers.

    Would you please type me the IPA of the word "brachii"?

    Here's the context. The biceps brachii, commonly known as the biceps, is a two-headed muscle that lies on the upper arm between the shoulder and the elbow. (From wikipedia.com)

    Re: Some IPA of names

    Hi teachers.

    I wonder if you show me the IPA of these two words in the following context.

    1) I'm suspending judgment on the book I'm reading until I've finished it.

    Should it be "t" or "d"?

    2) Sam blocked the corridor off with a row of chairs.

    Should it be "roh"?

    Re: Some IPA of names

    For me, /d/.

    "roh". Row rhymes with "now" only when it means "argument". It's rarely used in that sense in American English.

    Re: Some IPA of names

    Don't try to transcribe individual words if they occur in context. You should aim to transcribe the whole utterance. The final '-ed' of finished is pronounced as /d/ in this context.

    In sentence 2, row is pronounced to rhyme with 'know' and 'grow'.
