Linguistics Games by Nathan Sanders

Here are some of the educational games I've created for linguistics, mostly for practicing IPA symbols and phonetic terminology:

Print and play

IPA Bingo for general North American English (modelled after Cascadilla Press's original): bingo sheets and calling cards (double border for calling out natural classes for a faster game, single boarder for calling out individual phones for a slower game)

IPA Bingo for standard French (with Fatimi Hamlaoui): bingo sheets and calling cards

IPA Discard for non-English consonants (shedding game modelled after Crazy Eights and Uno): rules and cards

IPA Hunt for non-English vowels (guessing game modelled after Battleship): rules and rules and playsheet

Online (all created with Flippity.net)

Acoustics Apple Picker (guessing game for acoustics terminology, modelled on Hangman)

online version of IPA Bingo for general North American English: online card generator and randomizable lists for calling out individual phones and natural classes

IPA English Consonant Open Match (matching game modelled after Concentration, with face-up cards)

IPA English Consonant Memory Match #1 (harder matching game, with face-down cards)

IPA English Consonant Memory Match #2 (even harder matching game, with more face-down cards)

IPA Vowel Open Match (matching game for non-English vowels and diacritics, with face-up cards)

IPA Vowel Memory Match (harder matching game for non-English vowels and diacritics, with face-down cards)
