How Do You Spell OLD?

The spelling of the word "old" in English is a bit tricky. It is pronounced as /əʊld/ in IPA phonetic transcription, with the vowel sound represented by the symbol /əʊ/ and the consonant sound /ld/. The vowel sound is often written as "o" in English, but in this case, it is pronounced as a diphthong, blending the sounds of "o" and "u." The consonant cluster "ld" is also pronounced differently than simple "l" or "d" sounds, producing a final sound that is distinct and recognizable as "old."
