I was using the Dictionary application, and I have noticed it was showing the pronunciation using strange characters.
I checked the preferences, and they were set to use the American IPA characters.
Out of curiosity, I changed the option to "US English (Diacritical)"; I then re-typed the same word, and I have got this:
It seems that it uses diacritical characters when it should use IPA, and vice versa. Something changed in the last twenty-four hours, as it was working fine, the last time I used it.
I think the problem is one of the preference files used by the Dictionary application. Which file should I restore, to get back the Dictionary application working as it is supposed to do?
Could it be another problem? Which one could be causing this?
