challabing, verb.

Pronunciation: /t∫æ’læbɪŋ/
Etymology: chapter + collaborations
Definition: to collaborate on the creation of a chapter or idea.

The pronunciation is using IPA, the International Phonetic Alphabet and with the help of my editors, we have used the characters from the IPA online.

I have worked out the word-pronunciation to be: /t∫æ’læbɪŋ

  • t∫ is the ‘ch’ sound in chapter
  • æ is the ‘a’ sound in cat
  • l is the ‘l’ sound in lima
  • b is the ‘b’ sound in bus
  • ɪ is the ‘i’ sound in interest
  • ŋ is the ‘ng’ sound at the end of sing
