HOWJSAY.COM The Pronunciation Dictionary

Here’s a site I stumbled upon while looking for the proper pronounciation of the word “anosognosia”.  Many online dictionaries offer computer pronunciations, but often fall short with technical and medical terminology.  HowJsay.com doesn’t have the greatest design, but I haven’t been able to stump it yet, which makes it a very useful tool if you want to know how to prounce those really tricky words.

To understand the use of the lemon imagery, and for a fascinating read about Anosognosics (people with disabilities that prevent them from being aware of their disability) check out this NY Times column by Oscar winning documentarian Errol Morris.  The Anosognosic’s Dilemma
