|The internet says AC Gimson|
The Chart and the IPA are two vastly different things. Calling the OUP 'pronunciation chart or even the mighty Adrian Underill's chart the 'IPA' is as cringe-worthy misplacing an apostrophe. Its' very annoying, isn't it?
|Copyright with OUP-note they don't refer to this as the IPA. It's a 'pronunciation chart'|
This blog started as a Grail Diary of sorts about that Chart above. Recently I was given the opportunity of writing for a small readership in Ireland by Peter Lahiff of ELT Ireland's writing group. They are putting together a publication called ELT Ireland Bulletin. Look out for it early next year. In my reading I ran into this wonderful little story by Geoff Lindsey about AC Gimson and Peter Roach and our favourite ELT classroom artifact.
