comment What is the correct way to pronounce 'router'?
I know but there is another option called US English (Diacritical) which doesn't use IPA but some other custom symbols (like Merriam Webster)

comment What is the correct way to pronounce 'router'?
kiamlaluno, you're using the IPA version of the NOAD (are you on a Mac by any chance?). The diacritical version, which is also the one found in the NOAD WordWeb add-on, says: "router 1 |ˈroutər| noun a power tool with a shaped cutter, used in carpentry for making grooves for joints, decorative moldings, etc. router 2 |ˈroōtər; ˈroutər| noun a device that forwards data packets to the appropriate parts of a computer network." I have never, however, heard any American call a router(2) "rooter" instead of "rowter."
