Funny Phonemes

Screenshot #1 (iPhone)
Phonemic awareness training meets pop culture jargon and clean slang in an app that older students will love! Practice hearing phonemes, identifying missing phonemes and arranging them into words. What words? Over 250 of them including surfing terms, social media lingo, school-yard epithets and, of course, a few terms worthy of Captain Underpants.

Control which phonemes to focus on in the Phoneme Set Editor. With the Editor feature, you can fine tune which phonemes the learner is asked to identify and differentiate. Want to train on word-initial consonants only? Short vowel sounds? Exclude consonant blends? Use single-syllable words only? It's all easy with the Editor.

With over 250 slang words from all over the globe, there are sure to be some words or usages that are new to you or your student. No worries! A tongue-in-cheek slang dictionary is built into the app with a handy text-to-speech function to read the definitions aloud. Any words you'd rather not use at all? Just add them to the app's blacklist.

What's new in version 1.1
- The much requested Chipmunk voice is now available in Extra Goodies (as well as British..ish, Cowboy, Dark&Mysterious and, of course, the default voice, Handsome Canadian).
- Updates for iOS 12.
- Funny Phonemes is now a paid app: access to the phoneme set editor and all the voices, themes, sound effects is fully unlocked.
Our verdict: Ok
  • + Funny Phonemes is a highly rated app (4-star).
