With a limited knowledge in the field of English orthographics or when dealing with specific terminology taken from another language, phonological guidance proves indispensable. Phonological or phonetic transcriptions utilizing the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) facilitate accuracy and eliminate errors originating from one's native language. Problematic areas such as intonation, stress, and articulation could be alleviated through referencing available phonetic transcription resources.
