Documentation[edit]

The following parameters are supported: ipa, phon (phonetic hangul), audio (audio filename), rr (or rv), yr (or y).

If ipa is not supplied, the template {{rfp}} will be displayed.

The phon field will display only if the phonetic hangul differs from the page name.

E.g.:

{{ko-pron|ipa=[haːngugʌ]|phon=한ː국어|rr=Hangugeo}}

IPA slashes[edit]

This template adds its own slashes around the IPA section. That confounds attempts to specify a phonetic transcription and to specify alternate IPA pronunciations. See (r) for an example. May I remove the slashes? Rod (A. Smith) 18:01, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Feel free... or perhaps, since I would suppose that we would always want a phonetic transcription, they could just be replaced with brackets? Sorry for the mixup; things like this always get the better of me. ;-) Incidentally, ipa2 does exist for alternate pronunciations (and we could add ipa3, ipa4 if it seems warranted, though such cases might be better addressed with a written-out explanation). -- Visviva 18:28, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
Some IPA transcriptions require multiple alternatives. Besides, some editors may prefer to transcribe more broadly or narrowly than others, so I think we should let the editors add the brackets or slashes, just as they do with {{IPA}}. I'll make the change now. If you disagree with it, though, feel free to discuss this further and/or revert my edit. Rod (A. Smith) 23:23, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
