IPA(key): /aɪ piː ˈeɪ/


This template adds the proper formatting and links to a pronunciation transcription in the International Phonetic Alphabet. It applies proper formatting and adds links to the language's IPA key using Module:IPA/templates. It should be used in pronunciation sections only. If the language has a template that automatically generates pronunciation from spelling, that template should be used instead of this one.

By default, the module counts the syllables in every phonemic transcription of a language that has diphthongs listed in Module:syllables, and a category is added based on the count, such as English 1-syllable words. To turn off syllable counting, add the parameter |nocount=1.

The module also tracks various IPA and some non-IPA symbols in particular languages' transcriptions (see Module:IPA/tracking). It gives a preview-only message in red if any symbols are invalid, based on the list in Module:IPA/data/symbols, and offers suggestions to correct some common substitutions.

Parameters

|1=
The language code (see Wiktionary:List of languages) for the current language section. The parameter |lang= is a deprecated synonym; please do not use. If this is used, all numbered parameters move down by one.
|2=, |3=, |4= ...
Indicates one or more pronunciations. These should be formatted in correct IPA and be surrounded by slashes / / for phonemic representations, and square brackets [ ] for phonetic representations. They will be displayed separated by commas.
|qualN=
Specifies a qualifier to be placed before pronunciation N. This is formatted with the {{qualifier}} template.
|nN=
Specifies a reference note to be placed after pronunciation N. The reference is placed in the ===References=== section at the bottom of the language's entry.
|nocount=1
Turns off syllable counting.
|sort=
Manual sortkey. Use sparingly; the makeSortKey method in Module:languages can usually generate the correct sortkey.

Accepted symbols

Besides the official IPA, the following extensions are accepted:

‼ ᶑ ᵻ ᵿ ͈  ¡ ʬ ʭ ˭ ↑ ↓ ꟸ ᷽

as well as the following common substitutes:
