IPA is [rædɪkl fædɪkl]! But just out of curiosity, it's [treɪ] and not [tʃreɪ]?

Hmm, maybe it is the second one, I didn’t catch that :P

[treɪ] would be pretty strange without that ʃ in the middle. My mistake.

I never realized how useful IPA was until now! What a cool invention.

(For the curious, my name’s pronounced [tʃreɪ] (tray), and my blog is [ˌtʃrˈspiːk] (tray-speek), and my favorite fandom is [ˌreɪˈmæn] (ray-man). In the past I’ve heard all three with different pronunciations, but that’s how I say them, at least.)

can we start a club for teenagers who were constantly complimented on their intelligence when they were younger and are now having trouble coping with the realization that they’re actually of average intellect at best

in elementary school i constantly scored as reading at a college level but then i got to college and suddenly everyone’s reading at college level.

I HAVE NEVER SEEN A POST THAT SO ACCURATELY DESCRIBES MY LIFE.

people on a first name basis with Lana Del Rey throw me off cause I always think they’re talking about me

because, you know, i’m self-absorbed

So is your name Lana. Or Lana del Rey?

my name is Lana. just Lana. 

but you’d be surprised how many people drop the ‘Del Rey’ when talking about her

Pronunciation is key with this one:

  • cinniie = “La-na”
  • Young & Beautiful = “Lah-nuh”

(at least, that’s how I differentiate the two)

this isn’t working, can you do a recording or write it in IPA

cinniie = [lænə]

Del Rey = [lɑːnɑː]
