What is IPA?

The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) is the standardized system for representing the sounds of language. It is used by linguists, foreign language learners, speech pathologists, and phonetics enthusiasts to study and describe the pronunciation of words.

Technical details

The underlying IPA transcription data is captured in a structured, machine-readable format, making it possible to use it to build language models, train speech recognition/synthesis algorithms, and conduct phonetic research. The pronunciations follow the format used by Wikipedia's IPAc-en template.
