Heteronyms and polyphones: Categories of words with multiple phonemic representations
Martin M., Jones GV., Nelson DL., Nelson L.
Heteronyms are words that have two different possible pronunciations that are associated with two (or more) different meanings. They can be used to investigate psychological mechanisms in reading and other cognitive processes. A corpus of English heteronyms has been collected and is tabulated here. In addition, a corpus of English polyphones is tabulated. These are words with different pronunciations that are not associated with different meanings. © 1981 Psychonomic Society, Inc.
