It provides a set of symbols to represent the pronunciation of Icelandic 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. Changes should reflect consensus; especially if the conventions of this key are already in wide use, any substantive change to it should be discussed on the talk page first so as not to create discrepancies between the key and transcriptions.
