This is a chart of International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) symbols. For an explanation of IPA, see the International Phonetic Alphabet article on Wikipedia.

In the row for each IPA symbol are words that are typically transcribed using the symbol, or are known to have the sound represented by the symbol in at least some pronunciations. The part of the word that corresponds to the IPA symbol is bolded.
