When I need phonetic symbols, I just copy them off of Wikipedia. I don't know how to add diacritics with this method though. Take ◌̥ for example. When I try to delete the dotted circle, and replace it with a letter, the diacritic is always deleted first. What do I do?

  • Microsoft Word International Keyboard...

If you copy the HTML code for the combining character (̥), you can put it after the character you want to modify. It's easy as Ḁ B̥ C̥!

That is,


I found the HTML code on unicode-table, but you can really just google up a site.

  • And does this work for multiple diacritics on the same symbol?

  • Never mind, I checked it and it's possible to just string them along :)

  • Yes, you can put an HTML code for another diacritic after the first (and so on) and they combine with the one character you want to modify.

By far and away the easiest method is to go to IPA.typeit.org. Use their full keyboard, type whatever you want with whatever diacritics, and then cut and paste into your post.
