  • The English Pronouncing Dictionary (EPD) is one of the most well-known works on English pronunciation. Its first edition, published in 1917 and written by Daniel Jones, used symbols of the International Phonetic Alphabet to represent the pronunciations of English words.

Gimson's system is now used by nearly all English dictionaries published in the UK, including those from publishers like Oxford, Longman or Collins.
