International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA)

The International Phonetic Alphabet is a system of symbols devised to represent the sounds of human language with a 1:1 sound:symbol correspondence. This allows linguists to describe phones and phonemes clearly and unambiguously.

Example:

[ðɪs ˈsɛnʔ.n̩ts hɯz bɪn ˌtræ̃nz.ˈlɪ.ɾɚ.e͡ɪ.ɾɯd ɪ̃n.tu ˈa͡ɪ ˈpʰi ˈe͡ɪ fɚ ˈɪ̃n.fo͡ʊ.snæks]
