Searching Minimal Pairs

Searching Minimal Pairs image
You can easily search for minimal pairs on Ambiki by visiting

The easiest way to search is to add a minimal pair you have in mind (choose two example words that differ by only one sound) and Ambiki will generate a list of minimal pairs for you based on the words you selected. For example, if you choose "take" and "make" Ambiki will return words that are the same except one has the "t" sound and the other has the "m" sound. See the results of the example search here.

You can also filter your results by:
  • Word pattern
  • Position in word
  • Syllable count
  • Word frequency
  • Dolch sight word group
