I spent the evening fiddling with Unipad. Tried my hand at transcribing
Greek. I had difficulty with the breathings (what are you supposed to use?) A
word like omicron (rough breathing + acute accent) tau iota:
hóti Unipad needs to add grave, acute and circumflex accents to
the Greek keyboard. There is that SIL keyboard package that comes with the SIL
IPA fonts, but I've never quite figured it out.
I checked out the Ladefoged site. Some of the consonants are very weird to
my ears, as if everything is being trilled; [r] sounds like
'are-whah', in a French accent. Parts of the site are 'broken'.
As y'all know, what phonology I have is self-taught. I'll be asking some
very elementary questions.
Here are some sounds rather difficult to transcribe. Has IPA caught up with
the throat-singers of Tuva yet?
