International Phonetic Association

The IPA is the major as well as the oldest representative organisation for phoneticians. It was established in 1886 in Paris.

The IPA provides the academic community world-wide with a notational standard for the phonetic representation of all languages - the International Phonetic Alphabet (also IPA).

Phonetic Alphabet

These are not phonetic alphabets as in those used to guide pronunciation, rather they are a selection of alphabets used, particularly by radio operators, to spell out words.

To accept the silence, enforcing it in the due moments. And, above all else, to listen.
