system for processing phonetic symbols in LaTeX
TIPA is a system for processing IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) symbols in LaTeX written by Fukui Rei. TIPA stands for either TeX IPA or Tokyo IPA and derived from the tsipa package, made in 1992 by Kobayashi Hajime, Fukui Rei and Shirakawa Shun.
Among many features of TIPA, the following are the new features as compared with tsipa or any other existing systems for processing IPA symbols:
* A new 256 character encoding for phonetic symbols (`T3'), which includes all the symbols and diacritics found in the recent versions of IPA and some non-IPA symbols.
* Complete support of LaTeX2e.
* Roman, slanted, bold, bold extended and sans serif font styles.
* Easy input method in the IPA environment.
* Extended macros for accents and diacritics.
* A flexible system of macros for `tone letters'.
* An optional package (vowel.sty) for drawing vowel diagrams.
* A slightly modified set of fonts that go well when used with Times Roman and Helvetica fonts.
Type 1 fonts for TIPA are also included in this package (to make them available in X11 applications other than LaTeX, please install the xfonts-tipa package).
