Sites for Writers #16

An Audio Dictionary

By Annette Rey

Have you been taught to use words that are well-known to you? Do you look up definitions before you add an even slightly new word to your writing? These are must practices for writers. You don’t want to present work that shows you are not literate because you have incorrectly interpreted the meaning of a word.

Just as important as your written word is how you speak. The voice in your brain that you draw upon for your writing is the vocal voice you use in everyday speaking. So pronunciation is integral to both your oral voice and your mental voice.

Here’s a great site for setting your speech on the right path.
