Phonetic Film Quiz #4

This week’s phonetic quiz is from a film written and directed by one of my favourite directors.  I will tell you which director, but only in phonetics.

So, here it is.  First the director’s name, then the actors’:

/ˈkrɪstəfə ˈnəʊlʌn/
/li:ʌˈnɑ:dəʊ dɪˈkæpri:əʊ/
/ken wætɪ'næbi:/
/'dʒəʊsɪf 'gɔ:dɪn 'levɪt/
/'elɪn peɪdʒ/
/tɒm 'ha:di:/
/'sɪli:yn 'mɜ:fi:/
/'mɑɪkəl keɪn/

There is also one other main actress in the movie but her name is French, which uses different pronunciation rules.  Here is the phonetics but these are not in the English phonetic system.

/maʁjɔ̃ kɔtijaʁ/ (Phonetics for French)

Remember to visit the Macmillan Interactive Phonetic Chart for help as well as this helpful video which explains the chart by Adrian Underhill.

Here are the answers.
