Usage

This template can be used to add an infobox for a phonetic sound.

This infobox can be used to describe a phonetic sound, both by its name and its IPA symbol. Additional information can be added, like the X-SAMPA letters and a graphic image file.

In general, the descriptive name corresponds with the article name. The infobox is then placed on that article page.

Parameters

Basic parameters

Only a few parameters are required to produce a useful infobox. The above header can be set, and up to four IPA symbols can be shown:

|ipa number= is required to show the sound if available and the header if |above= is omitted.

Decimals are decimal character references, also known as "Entity", to define the symbol in HTML. The template tries to find all known information with these two numbers.

Some more basic parameters:

Voiced velar stop

Entity (decimal)ɡ
Unicode (hex)U+0261

Encoding
Entity (decimal)ʎ​̥​˔
Unicode (hex)U+028E U+0325 U+02D4

| ipa number = 157 402A 429
| decimal1   = 654
| decimal2   = 805
| decimal3   = 724
| decimal4   =

Multiple symbols

Up to eight symbols can be shown in big font.

Downstep and upstep
ꜛ◌
ꜜ◌
| above = Downstep and upstep
| ipa symbol  = ꜛ◌
| ipa symbol2 = ꜜ◌
| ipa symbol3 =

Image

Adding an image of the symbol:

Voiceless
ʎ̥˔
{{infobox IPA
| ipa symbol = ʎ̥˔
| imagefile    = Lateral fricatives.svg
| imagecaption = image example
| imagesize    = 50px
}}

Sound file

The template tries to determine the default sound file name by the IPA symbol as defined at Module:IPA symbol/data:

Priorities in parameters

The template tries to get as much information as possible from the input. Overwriting:

| above        = (overwrites ipa symbol name (IPA symbol) in header)
| unicode      = (overwrites Unicode numbers that were determinated by the decimal numbers)
