THE URANTIA BOOK GLOSSARY & PRONUNCIATION GUIDE

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

This GLOSSARY AND PRONUNCIATION GUIDE has been limited primarily for those words used in The Urantia Book which are not included in other standard reference sources.

The pronunciations indicated are those generally used by English-speaking readers of The Urantia Book in the United States and may differ from pronunciation used in other countries and languages. The pronunciation principle followed in this GLOSSARY has been to record the actual, current use by long-time readers, without intending to dictate standards of correctness. A phonetic spelling approach to pronunciation has been used for simplification and to avoid the need to include a separate guide for pronunciation symbols. It is our intention, however, in future editions to utilize the alphabet of the International Phonetic Association IPA to facilitate international usage of this guide.

The accent mark used is a single accent ( ' ) denoting stress to be put on the most heavily pronounced syllable in the word.

The reference notation convention of page references contained within parentheses is page and paragraph of the specified page as it appears in the Foundation editions of the text. The first indented paragraph on each page is numbered "1." Thus the notation (201,1)[17:3.3] refers to the first indented paragraph of page 201. A list of indented numbered items is counted as one paragraph unless each number in the list contains a complete sentence. The notations appearing within brackets denote Paper: Section. Paragraph. Thus [45:2.3] refers to Paper 45, section 2, paragraph 3.

We hope you will find this reference aid of use in your continued study and understanding of The Urantia Book. We intend to improve and expand it based upon readers' comments and suggestions and encourage you to contact us with your ideas. Thank you.
