|THE URANTIA BOOK GLOSSARY & PRONUNCIATION GUIDE
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.
