Abstract:
			
Thomas Spence's Grand Repository differs from the many English
pronouncing dictionaries produced in the late eighteenth century
firstly in that it was intended primarily for the lower classes, and
secondly in that it used a truly 'phonetic' script in the sense of one
sound = one symbol. In this unique account, Joan Beal pays attention
to the actual pronunciations with a view to reconstructing what was
felt to be 'correct' pronunciation in eighteenth-century Britain.
