It provides a set of symbols to represent the pronunciation of Danish in Wikipedia articles, and example words that illustrate the sounds that correspond to them. Integrity must be maintained between the key and the transcriptions that link here. Some keys are built on consensus more strongly than others; if the conventions of this key are already in wide use, any substantive change to it should be discussed on the talk page first as it would affect a large number of articles.
^ ab[tɕ] is phonemically /tˢj/, and [ɕ] is phonemically /sj/.
^ abcDiphthongs with an underlying long vowel always have stød, but the ones with an underlying short vowel do not. [eɪ̯, ɛɪ̯, æɪ̯, øɪ̯, æʊ̯, oʊ̯, ɔʊ̯] all have an underlying long vowel and so always have stød. Conversely, [aɪ̯, ɒɪ̯, uɪ̯, aʊ̯, ɒʊ̯] have an underlying short vowel and so never have stød. The other diphthongs (including all diphthongs ending with [ɐ̯]) appear both with and without stød (Grønnum (2005:294)).
^ ab[ɪ] and [ʊ] are assimilatory variants of [ɪ̯ə] and [ʊ̯ə], respectively.
