Pronunciation

Print Friendly and PDF

The Pronunciation tool allows you to easily find the correct pronunciation of Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek lemmas, in addition to some English words. The Pronunciation tool can be accessed from the Context menu within a Bible resource, in the Factbook, or opened as a panel from the Tools menu.

Note: The Pronunciation tool provides the pronunciation of lemmas (the dictionary form of a word) but does not provide the pronunciation of inflected forms.
