Pronunciation[edit]

The pronunciation "/ho33 hɜp35/" was given in the entry labelled as IPA. It clearly isn't IPA, so I've moved it here, but what actually is it? And should it be in the entry at all? Thryduulf (talk) 10:53, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

The numbers show pitch and pitch contour. They are very commonly employed for this purpose in tone languages. Equivalent symbol for 33 = ˧, 35 = ˧˥. The number range for Vietnamese is from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest). 3 is midrange and 33 means level contour. —Stephen 06:55, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
