Word Lists and Pronunciation Guides
This page contains links to PDFs of the words, phrases, and sentences used in some of the LocuTour software titles. The manuals usually contain more information on the guidelines we used when selecting words and writing sentences. It also contains our pronunciation guide which is useful for understanding how we placed words into different categories.
LocuTour Guide to Sounds
These guides are meant to be used as a reference when using LocuTour software. They show how we categorize the sounds that are in words. For each sound we show how we: spell it, label it, classify it, and produce it. We show the IPA representation, spelling, and give examples.
