KEY TO PRONUNCIATION

When the pronunciation is self-evident the titles are not respelled; when by mere division and accentuation it can be shown sufficiently clearly the titles have been divided into syllables, and the accented syllables indicated.

a as in sofa o as in not iu as in duration
" " arm " " nor c = k " " cat
a " " at u " " full2 ch " " church
ā " " fare ū " " rule cw = qu " " queen
e " " pen1 U " " but dh (th) " " the

o " " obey ei " " oil hw (wh) " " why
ō " " no iū " " few j " " jaw

1In accented syllables only; in unaccented syllables it approximates the sound of e in over. The letter n, with a dot beneath it, indicates the sound of n as in ink. Nasal n (as in French words) is rendered n.
2In German and French names ū approximates the sound of u in dune.
