The internet is riddled with gaps and mysteries. Into this frayed material it is possible to create something radically new - new resources people never knew they needed, to be the sole expert in a self-defined field directly answerable to no one. Such is the Pronunciation Book - a well-designed YouTube page (which has spawned copy-cat pages and parodies) in which a myriad of words and their pronunciation are presented anonymously. Ranging from the mundane (until, slap bass, past) to the more esoteric (Zyzz, Mjölnir, kitsune), each video features the word in black block letters against a white background with its clear pronunciation repeated a few times by a calm male voice. The effect is puzzling, hilarious, and curiously poetic.
