YouGlish

From Teflpedia

YouGlish, a portmanteau word of YouTube and English, is a website that shows words in context, taken from YouTube videos. You type a word, (for example "pokemon")[1] and you get several (in the "pokemon" example hundreds) of videos with the word. Many words also have the IPA (such as "brexit").[2]
