This paper describes changes to the extIPA (Extensions to the IPA) symbol set, the motivation for these changes, and areas where future changes by the IPA might be helpful to clinical transcribers. The extIPA symbol set was introduced some twenty-five years ago. Since that time, some minor changes have been introduced to the extIPA chart but no major rearrangement has been attempted. The 2010 Oslo meeting of ICPLA (International Clinical Phonetics and Linguistics Association) started a revision… 

Revisions to the VoQS system for the transcription of voice quality

This account describes the first major revision of the VoQS chart, these changes being mostly in the form of additions to the section on phonation types, but include also changes to the layout of the supralaryngeal settings section.

An automated tool for comparing phonetic transcriptions

The web-based Automated Phonetic Transcription Comparison Tool is a validated and versatile tool for quantitatively comparing even complex IPA phonetic transcriptions and is freely available to clinicians and researchers, who may find it useful for a variety of potential scenarios.

The Impact of Real-Time Articulatory Information on Phonetic Transcription: Ultrasound-Aided Transcription in Cleft Lip and Palate Speech

UTI is a useful complement to traditional phonetic transcription for CLP speech and was more likely to identify covert errors such as double articulations and retroflexion than the audio-only transcribers.

Students’ views and experiences of the training and use of phonetic transcription in speech and language therapy – the Irish perspective

Participants' responses suggest that more clinically relevant transcription practice of disordered speech, the opportunity to refresh and apply phonetic transcription skills throughout the four-year curriculum and smaller group teaching would benefit their learning and enhance their confidence using transcription on placements and in the workforce.

Transcribing rhotics in normal and disordered speech

Some developments in transcription are reported that would allow clinical phoneticians to avoid the use of difficult-to-read diacritics when transcribing sonorant sounds in normal and disordered speech.

Chimpanzee vowel-like sounds and voice quality suggest formant space expansion through the hominoid lineage

It is concluded from the results that supra-laryngeal articulatory capacities show moderate evolutionary change, with vowel space expansion continuing through hominoid evolution.

Rythme et contrôle articulatoire : étude préliminaire du Human Beatbox (Rhythm and articulatory Control : Preliminary study of Human Beatboxing)

Dans cette étude nous nous intéressons à l’analyse spectrale d’imitation de grosses caisses, de charleston et de caisse claire dans un paradigme d’augmentation de la vitesse de production. La vitesse



Characteristics of Atypical Speech currently not included in the Extensions to the IPA

The Extensions to the IPA for the transcription of disordered speech and voice quality (extIPA) were approved at the 1989 IPA Congress in Kiel (see Duckworth et al. 1990, Ball 1991). A transcription

An atypical articulatory setting as learned behaviour: a videofluorographic study

We describe the case of a child with severely unintelligible speech, referred to our clinic after unsuccessful therapy elsewhere. Thomas's speech was char-acterized by deapicalization and velodorsal

Extensions to the International Phonetic Alphabet for the transcription of atypical speech

This paper introduces and illustrates the Extensions to the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) that have been recommended for the narrow transcription of disordered speech. The relationship

I read with interest the note by Leigh Lisker in JIPA 22 (pp 57–61) concerning the problem of marking force of articulation in phonetic transcription, and his regret that the 1989 revisions did not

The symbolization of central approximants in the IPA

Approximants that can be considered weaker versions of voiced fricatives (termed here ‘frictionless continuants’) are poorly served by the IPA in terms of symbolization as compared to semi-vowel

Revisions to the VoQS system for the transcription of voice quality

This account describes the first major revision of the VoQS chart, these changes being mostly in the form of additions to the section on phonation types, but include also changes to the layout of the supralaryngeal settings section.

Problems in the classification of approximants

It is shown that the approximant feature refers to a phonetic class which includes other subcategories of sounds, such as semi-vowels, rhotics, laterals and a subset of consonants, which points out that the outflow of non-turbulent airstream is caused by either the opening of the organs or the lack of articulatory precision.

The VoQS System for the Transcription of Voice Quality

The traditional term voice quality will be retained but with a wide application to account for voice quality derived from airflow features, vocal fold activity, and supralaryngeal activity.

Phonetic Transcription in Theory and Practice

This book surveys the history of attempts to represent speech, considering the relationship of transcription to written language and includes a thorough analysis of the many different kinds of phonetic transcription.
