Pronunciation Field in Application Form

Last night I joined the Linguistics Society of America.

The online form had a field I thought was cute: how, described in the International Phonetic Alphabet, I pronounce my name.

I entered ʤæɪmz tʰæʊbɘ.

It just occurs to me looking at it now that, although it's a fairly broad transcription, anyone who uses it to pronounce my name will temporarily be taking on an Australian accent :-)

The original post was in the category: linguistic_observations but I'm still in the process of migrating categories over.
