Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Note: Per WP:LEAD, do not use this template in the lead section for common English words (like pub, rose, pencil, bus, Monday, Earth, etc.).

This template is used to display English International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). The pronunciation is broken into individual diaphonemes so that they will have tooltips (mouse-over text) to indicate pronunciation. All diaphonemes from IPA for English are available. For anything outside that set, a different template should be used.

The initial arguments can be used to indicate a pronunciation prescript (eg, English pronunciation:). The available pronunciation codes are:

Code Aliases Output
lang english English
pron pronunciation pronunciation:
local local
ipa IPA
aus AU
ca CA
ie IE
nz NZ
uk UK
us US
za ZA

The first argument that is not a pronunciation code will be treated as a diaphoneme. See the collapsed table below for a full list of diaphoneme codes. As well as diaphonemes, there are some separator codes as well. For example, you can use a keyboard underscore _ for a space between words. Diaphonemes are underlined, but separators are not, and separators do not have any tooltip text.
