Phonetics – a favorite thing

I love language systems, particularly letters that are weird, like the shwa or thorn. I also like when speech therapists discuss fricatives and sybilants. So how happy am I to see this wikipedia chart of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), which includes all the discrete sound bits for every language in the world? So happy.

Here are some samples:

Voiceless retroflex approximant

 

 

 

Biliabial trill

 

 

Voiced alveolar lateral fricative

 

 

Here is the whole chart
