Usage[change | change source]

In addition to the generic switches outlined below, IPA-fi has:

  • {{IPA-fi|o|et}}/{{IPA-fi|o|est}}Estonian pronunciation: [o]
  • {{IPA-fi|o|langet}}Estonian: [o]

Several templates can be used to show how a word should be pronounced (said) using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). In order to use them, you need to know how the IPA works.

Template Description Example Result
Basic template
{{IPA}} This template uses a font that allows special IPA symbols to display correctly. {{IPA|prəˌnʌnsiːˈeɪʃən}} prəˌnʌnsiːˈeɪʃən
General pronunciations of English words
{{IPA-en}} Use this template to display a generally-accepted pronunciation of an English word, rather than a regional pronunciation that is usually found only in one or more places. The template links to "Help:Pronunciation" which has a chart showing IPA symbols that are relevant to English. {{IPA-en|prəˌnʌnsiːˈeɪʃən}} how to say: /prəˌnʌnsiːˈeɪʃən/
{{Pron-en}} This template is similar to {{IPA-en}}, but displays the word "pronounced" instead of "IPA". {{pron-en|prəˌnʌnsiːˈeɪʃən}} pronounced /prəˌnʌnsiːˈeɪʃən/
Foreign words, regional pronunciations of English words, English dialects
{{IPA-all}} Use this template for foreign words that are not yet considered as part of English, regional pronunciations of English words, and non-standard English dialects. The template links to "Help:IPA", which has a more complete chart of IPA symbols. {{IPA-all|ˈstʀazbuʀ}} IPA: [ˈstʀazbuʀ]
{{Pronounced}} This template is similar to {{IPA-all}}, but displays the word "pronounced" instead of "IPA". {{pronounced|ˈstʀazbuʀ}} pronounced [ˈstʀazbuʀ]
With audio file
{{Audio-IPA}} This template allows an audio file showing how a word is pronounced to be linked to.

(For a template that does not include IPA symbols, use {{Audio}}.)

{{audio-IPA|sv-åka.ogg|[ˈoːka]}} [ˈoːka]

Respelled pronunciation[change | change source]

The IPA can show the sounds in a word very accurately, but is not easy to understand as it uses many special symbols. Another way of showing how to pronounce a word is to use a respelling method. This method spells words using a simpler system, which can be found at "Help:Pronunciation respelling key". The method is easier to understand because it does not use any special symbols except the schwa ("ə"), which represents the "uh" sound.

The template {{Respelled}} can be used to display respelled pronunciations.

It can be helpful to show how a word should be pronounced with both the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) and respelled pronunciation, as shown in the example below:

Example Result
'''Strasbourg''' ({{pronounced|ˈstʀazbuʀ}},
{{respelled|<small>STRAZ</small>-bur}}),
is a [[city]] in the east of [[France]].
Strasbourg (pronounced [ˈstʀazbuʀ], STRAZ-bur),
is a city in the east of France.
