Why Online Dictionaries (Plural) Make You More Open When Developing English Pronunciation Skills – Users’ Self-reports

Abstract

Many online dictionaries apart from the meaning definition(s) incorporate some information on the pronunciation of the listed items, most often in the form of a recording made available for users to listen to and emulate. Others complement it with IPA transcription.

To develop that, users need more comprehensive and versatile dictionary entries.
