Compagnie Générale Transatlantique v. Elting, 298 U.S. 217 (1936)? Kawaauhau v. Geiger, 523 U.S. 57 (1998)? Schuylkill Trust Co. v. Pennsylvania, 302 U.S. 506 (1938)? Some Supreme Court cases are just difficult to pronounce. To help, Yale Law School recently created the Pronouncing Dictionary of the Supreme Court of the United States. This resource provides information about how to pronounce foreign and other difficult party names from hundreds of Supreme Court cases. For each case, the dictionary has an Americanized pronunciation based on the Garner Pronunciation Guide from Black’s Law Dictionary as well as a pronunciation using the International Phonetic Alphabet. Audio of each pronunciation is provided as well.
