The pointless game thread

Post by Xing » 21 Nov 2011 21:31

I was inspired by the "How do You Pronounce X"-threadon the ZBB, and was thinking about making a game of it.

The first poster posts a word in the standard orthography. For example:

<dog>

The next poster provides a phonetic transcription (in IPA or X-SAMPA), and provides a new word for the poster after her/him:

[dɒg]

New word:
<cat>

The next poster continues:

[kʰæt̚]

New word:
<bird>

Etc.


First word:

<Wikipedia>

This makes me think I probably actually have [fəˈniːʃən] or something, then.

Well. [fəˈnɛʔɪk]?
