English - Pronunciation

* (Received Pronunciation) IPA(key): /əˈləʊn/ * (General American) IPA(key): /əˈloʊn/, enPR: ə-lōnʹ * (Hong Kong) IPA(key): /ɐˈluŋ/ * Rhymes: -əʊn * Hyphenation: a‧lone * _one_ and _once_ are pronounced differently from the related words _alone_, _only_ and _atone_. Stressed vowels often become diphthongs over time (Latin _bOna_ → Italian _bUOna_ and Spanish _bUEna_), and this happened in the late Middle Ages to the words _one_ and _once_, first recorded ca 1400: the vowel underwent some changes, from ōn → ōōōn → wōn → wōōn → wŏŏn → wŭn.
