- IPA has approximately 107 base symbols and 55 modifiers.
- There is a specific chart for the sounds of English.
- Different resources use IPA in different ways.
- There are even different symbols used for British English :(
The result is that, yes we can enter IPA transcriptions when we enable it. The problem however is that we should not allow IPA transcriptions optimised for the English speakers. OmegaWiki is to be used by people with ANY language as a background.
I think that before we enable IPA transcriptions there should be some more discussion.
