ScreenLex:   A Pronunciation Guide for Film & TV studies
ScreenLex contains pronunciations of key phrases and people’s names from the disciplines of film studies and television studies.  Its items are available in three ways:

  1. As a podcast.  Download them to your iPod or other mobile-audio device.
  2. Online:  Listen to them online at screenlex.org using a Flash-based player.
  3. As a downloaded MP3 file.

For more information, please visit:

http://www.screenlex.org

The first 30 pronunciations (see below) have just been released.  More will be added, on an irregular basis.  Subscribe to ScreenLex’s podcast to make sure you catch each new item!

Or, if you use iTunes, search for ScreenLex there, or go directly to

ScreenLex seeks suggestions for terms/names to be added to its collection.  We also seek native speakers in languages other than English that would contribute (accurate!) pronunciations.

And, of course, we welcome corrections or alternative pronunciations!
