Extended Minimal Pairs for English

Pick one or more sounds from the left and one or more sounds from the right, then press the "Submit" button to get a list of minimal pairs. You can get the usual minimal pairs, like "ship" and "sheep" (I and i), as well as extended minimal pairs, like "rides" and "rise" (dz and z). Use the buttons for a convenient entry, or enter text directly in the boxes.

See also John Higgins' page of minimal pairs, which is based on the same data as this.
