Edit-copy green.svg Documentation for Template:IPAlink. [edit]
This page contains usage information, categories, interwiki links and other content describing the template.

The template {{IPAlink}} automatically wikilinks an IPA symbol to the respective sound article. IPAlink displays only the IPA letters.

The conversion table is not defined in this template, but inherited from {{IPAsym}}.


These template has only one parameter. If the IPA symbol is not defined in the IPAsym table, then an error message is returned.

{{IPAlink|m}}m invalid IPA characters ([:]), replace : with ː
{{IPAlink|ɡb}}ɡb invalid IPA characters ([:]), replace : with ː
{{IPAlink|pʰɪk}}[[w:Template:IPAsym - Error: Entry "pʰɪk" not found|pʰɪk]] obsolete or nonstandard characters (TP), invalid IPA characters ([:T:IPAE:E""]), replace : with ː, : with ː, : with ː

The latter is normally more an example of accidental misuse than intentional use, or it could be a sign that a symbol is missing from the {{IPAsym}} table.
