Throughout Wikipedia, the pronunciation of words is indicated by means of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA).
The following tables list the IPA symbols used for English words and pronunciations.
As a general rule, the rarer the letter the more points it is worth.
Many languages use sets of 102 tiles, since the original distribution of one hundred tiles was later augmented with two blank tiles.
This key represents diaphonemes, abstractions of speech sounds that accommodate General American (Gen Am), Received Pronunciation (RP), Canadian English, South African, Australian, and New Zealand pronunciations.
