Phonon spectra of detwinned SrFe$$_2$$As$$_2$$ crystals, as measured by inelastic X-ray scattering, show clear anisotropyaccompanying the magnetostructural transition at 200 K. We model the mode splitting using magnetic DFT calculations, including a phenomenological reduction in force-constant anisotropy that can be attributed to magnetic fluctuations. This serves as a starting point for a general model of phonons in this material applicable to both the antiferromagnetically ordered phase and the paramagnetic phase. Using this model, the measured splitting in the magnetic phase below T$$_N$$, and the measured phonon linewidth, we set a lower bound on the mean magnetic fluctuation frequency above T$$_N$$ at 210 K.
