IPA countdown

Online game useful for practising IPA knowledge

IPA countdown is a game I developed using Shiny R, essentially replicating the famous British TV show in which contestants have to form words from a set of randomly selected letters. The key difference? In IPA countdown, you’re using IPA symbols to put together phonemic transcriptions rather than orthographic representations. I think this is a really good resource for students, particularly undergraduates who are learning the IPA chart for the first time in introductory phonetics classes.
