Discover wordsmith heaven—there's nothing like Phonetic Finder.
While programming for WordPerfect Corporation in 1990, Robert Stevens (our President) programmed Rhymer. Dr. Mel Luthy, a Ph.D linguist, manually created phonetic representations for each of the 93,480-words, one at time.
Using the rhyming dictionary database, they next created the world's first searchable phonetic dictionary and named it Phonetic Finder.
The example below shows a search requesting, "Find words like piper where the first and last syllables begin with the "p" sound, and the last sound is ur as in piper."
Create search queries in seconds with just a few mouse clicks, but you must use the Additional symbols to perform any useful searches.
You may limit your search according to the number of syllables in the words, how the words begin, and how many letters there are in the words.
Choose which alternate pronunciation you want when you convert a word to its phonetic representation (e.g., when you type "read" do you want it pronounced "reed" or "red"?)
With the Phonetic Finder Dictionary you can save time brainstorming for words containing specific sound combinations. Quickly assemble data for minimal pairs, pronunciation exercises, phonics research, and other types of phonetic study.
Phonetic Finder is ideal for research, creating word-based products, or for creating lists of words for children that have trouble with certain sounds.
