Help talk:IPA for Latin
Can someone record their voice for this entire thing
The bottom three vowels above the nasal vowel line are in English digraphs not IPA.The IPA has changed a lot since I was a little boy(especially in the last year or so)and I'm a bit of a novice at editing the tables, so could some valiant pedant fix this please?

- I believe that's the IPA convention we've been using.
- The IPA hasn't changed much, but fashions in how to apply it come and go. — kwami (talk) 08:57, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
If this article, Latin_spelling_and_pronunciation#Monophthongs states clearly that the open vowel was central, why Aeusoes1 reverted my edit with this comment, "rv unmotivated change of quality for /a/"? --Mahmudmasri (talk) 06:29, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
- If I remember correctly, I checked similar edits to many of the IPA for X pages. In most instances, the changes really were unmotivated as the related language and phonology pages were either vague on the matter or explicitly contradicted the change. I probably didn't even bother looking at the Latin page because AFAIK nobody knows if the /a/ of Latin was front or central. Their position in an uncited vowel chart doesn't undo my skepticism. — Æµ§œš¹ [ãːɱ ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɪ̃ə̃nlɪ] 12:49, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
- And, I can assure you, as the person who put that table there in the first place, that the vowel's position in the central column of that table is not due to some special knowledge about the vowels of Latin. — Æµ§œš¹ [ãːɱ ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɪ̃ə̃nlɪ] 13:01, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
