If the first line of this post is not recognizable, then you probably have a browser (or a machine) that doesn’t properly display
extended ASCII Unicode characters. This may be a problem for this blog, since we will probably often need to use phonetic transcription. I have very little experience with this; the html ASCII character codes for this post’s title were stolen from Geoff Pullum‘s website. The page is not organized in a way that is particularly useful for phonetic transcription (nor was it meant to be), but Geoff (or someone) was kind enough to label where the nonstandard characters, the IPA characters, and the Greek, etc. characters start.
It seems to me that what we need is one or more of the following, in ascending order of preference:
- Someone to edit the html
ASCIIcharacter code page to make it more useful for us phonologists.
- Someone to find a page in which the above has already been done.
- Someone to suggest and/or provide something better than having to type in (or copy-and-paste)
ASCIIcharacter codes for this purpose.
