Affricate /l/[edit]

ᵈl doesn't show up right on my browser (IE6). What's the difference between [ᵈl] and [tl]? — Ƶ§œš¹ [aɪm ˈfɻɛ̃ⁿdˡi] 06:41, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
it is a raised lowercase < d >, which is U+1d48 (which is in the phonetic extensions range). [tl] suggests a voiceless closure. You can also write this as [dl], but to capture the short closure duration you could use the breve diacritic [d̯l]. But that's usually used on vowels, not on the closure components of affricates, which usually use a superscript letter (be it IPA or non-IPA transcription). Could it be that the IPA template does not have an appropriate font with these superscript letters? One could also use html code: [dl]. – ishwar  (speak) 07:04, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
Ahh, [dl] is the best idea I think. — Ƶ§œš¹ [aɪm ˈfɻɛ̃ⁿdˡi] 07:44, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
