As editors, we often find and correct incorrectly spelled names in webtexts and reference lists. Instead of creating a list of correct spellings just for our editorial team, we decided to make this reference database public and to update it on a regular basis. But to make it even more useful (we believe) we would also like to add short audio clips of people speaking their name as it should be (or that they prefer it to be) pronounced, along with the correct spelling. This wiki is not intended to supply comprehensive details about scholars — just the spelling and pronunciation of names, but we will link to entries in the Writing Studies Tree for each entry (we'll add one if it doesn't already exist).
To add a name, record yourself saying your name as you would like it pronounced and send the sound file to scholarNames@technorhetoric.net. We use mp3 as the file format, but we can convert other formats to mp3 as needed. We also welcome recordings of scholars collected by others, but be sure that you have permission to send that audio for inclusion in this wiki.
