A PROPOSED IPA TRANSCRIPTION OF THE SLOVAL LANGUAGE
Languages of publication
The paper advocates the use of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) for the transcription of Slovak sounds. Two main types of transcription are presented - allophonic and phonemic. Furthermore, a distinction is made between a detailed (narrow) allophonic transcription and a simplified (broad) allophonic transcription. The pros and cons of the original Slovak transcription and the IPA transcription are discussed, and it is suggested that the IPA may be a useful tool for some linguists and language students.
