Interactive phonemic chart: American English

Adrian Underhill's Interactive phonemic chart! This excellent teaching tool can be played full-screen and gives clear audio examples of the English phoneme set.

Note: The chart is flash-based and may take a couple of minutes to appear the first time you visit this page. Please be patient – it's worth the wait! Because this is a flash-based chart it means you may not be able to open this on a mobile device. If this is the case, we recommend you use the chart in our Macmillan Sounds app which you can downoad here.

  • Hi,
    We are really sorry but you might have typed the phoneme and it appears as a question mark on the page. We don't know which phoneme you are referring to. Hope you see this comment and let us know.
