Article should have a phonology chart, and I'm suggesting a phonological chart which compares British English with American English, as people coming to learn English may have a sense of the American English as the standard, such that would make a good reference. -Inowen (nlfte) 23:43, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
why would they get that sense? surely everyone knows English originates in England. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 17:30, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
The dialect section contains a chart that shows the distribution of different pronunciations of the bath, grass, and dance vowels. Someone just changed the IPA values for it without a source. The problem is that the chart itself doesn't have IPA, nor is there even a source to be found. Can anyone come up with a proper source that lists the actual pronunciation in IPA and not just a spelling representation that everyone interprets differently? If not, I'll go ahead and delete it.--Megaman en m (talk) 09:50, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
As nobody responded, I have removed it for now.--Megaman en m (talk) 10:32, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
There are very many articles in WP which ignore this fact. If you look at the entry for 'Leicester', for example, the audio file is clearly the BrE pronunciation /ˈlɛstə/, but the IPA shown is /ˈlɛstər/. And there are many more. Cwrwgar (talk) 12:19, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
