How to make your own IPA Scrabble set

allthingslinguistic:

Everyone talks about wanting to play IPA Scrabble but not knowing how to do it. Well, I made a version with some ling-friends a while back, and we played it, and it was about as awesome as you’d expect (aka, very awesome). I considered trying to make it and market it to linguists, but I realized that a) this would take a lot of time that I do not have and b) Scrabble would probably sue me. So instead, I’ve decided to share the instructions on the Interwebz. Have fun, y’all.

"Whenever I’ve been afraid to make that leap, I’ve thought back to that moment when it seemed like my Mom’s entire world fell apart, and yet she was still convinced of her love for my soon-to-be dad.Time gives your life a unique perspective as you get older. You see that the challenges that once seemed so scary when you were young really weren’t that scary at all. Looking back, you’re glad you took the risks. Like my mother said, ‘If you don’t get a few bruises and scrapes along the way, then you’re not living.’And if time teaches us anything in this crazy world, it’s that nothing worth having ever comes easy.Thank you.”
