Need a pronunciation tip? Ask Howjsay

howjsay
How often have you started arguing with a friend over the correct pronunciation of a word? You know, the kind of word that you read all the time, but suddenly realize you've never heard spoken out loud. Well, before you beat your friend to a bloody pulp, you might want to check out howjsay, an online pronunciation dictionary.

All you do is type in a word, and howjsay will speak that word back to you in a rather dignified sounding voice. You'll also get a list of similarly spelled words in case you typed your entry wrong.

One of the most impressive things is that you get multiple pronunciations for words that can correctly be said more than one way.
