Cascadilla Press is delighted to offer a new way to entertain
students who are trying to learn phonetic symbols:

 IPA Bingo
by Lynn Santelmann

IPA Bingo can be used with large or small classes to encourage
students to learn the IPA symbols used for transcribing American
English or to reinforce their knowledge of articulatory
descriptions. This game can be used best in an introductory
linguistics course, or early in a phonetics or phonology course.

In order to solve phonology problems, students need to be
comfortable with the IPA and be able to match symbols to
articulatory descriptions. IPA Bingo is a fun way for students
to practice using the IPA symbols, and some simple variations
help teach distinctive features and natural classes.

The retail package includes rules for IPA Bingo, 100 different
game cards for students to use, and 2 sets of caller cards for
the instructor to use. All of the materials are available on
our web site for free download as pdf files for non-commercial
use if you would prefer to print them out yourself. You can
also order the retail package on our web site.
