English Learner's Guide to Homophones and Heteronyms, S.J. Lieberman. The accent is General American.

The key in page vi is not used in the body of the dictionary. For example, /aɪ/ in the key is /ɑɪ/ (eye, aisle) or /aɪ/ (wild, wine) in the body.

(*) /ʊə/ instead of /juː/ (beauty /bʊəti/, queue /kʊə/) or /jʊə/ (pure /pʊəɹ/) is clearly a mistake. It goes beyond a reasonable interpretation of the IPA definitions.
