Currently, when copying and pasting IPA script from sources such as ipa.typeit.org , the symbol for a voiced velar plosive:
... gets transmogrified into the following symbol:
The problem with this is that different types of symbol, for example < a, ɑ, æ > refer very specifically to different sounds within the IPA system. Recently, phoneticians have started being picky about the use of so-called "goggles-g" (because it looks a bit like a pair of goggles) when what is really intended is the symbol for the voiced velar plosive, which has no closed loop at the bottom.
The "goggles"-g, quite simply does not exist within the IPA set of symbols, but could get pressed into service in the future for the representation of a different type of sound.
Is there some way that we can get the voiced velar plosive symbol to remain in its correct form in posts on the site?
