Addendum for European Languages (non-English):

Swedish - The Yonie hotline.

PM for a secret phone number. The password you have to utter is the resulting concoction you get from mixing kangaroo drool, llama belches, and badgers pubic hair.

Mind. Blown. That is an awesome list - thank you for passing that on, Melissa.

Checked it for my current go-tos for pronunciation, and found them all on there.

Another example of why this community is so ace!

That is one of my favoritist sites ever. Thanks for putting it here, eX!

One other very worthy investment - get the paid version of the Merriam Webster Unabridged online. The medical dictionary (with audio pronunciation in most cases) is golden!
