I notice that for questions where pronunciation is relevant (e.g. "What words are commonly mispronounced by literate people who read them before they heard them?") folks use the International Phonetic Alphabet notation to properly indicate pronunciation.
- Is there an easy way to type the IPA characters that are not on the keyboard or is it just a matter of using utilities like Windows Character Map to enter such characters?
- Is IPA notation preferred over "spelled out" notation (not sure of the proper term here, but dictionary.com uses a toggle between "show spelled" and "show IPA") on this site?
