IPA Explanation
ˈ Primary stress (placed before the stressed syllable), for example rapping /ˈɹæpɪŋ/
ˌ Secondary stress, for example battleship /ˈbætl̩ˌʃɪp/
. Syllable separator, for example plankton /ˈplæŋk.tən/
 ̩ Syllabic consonant, for example ridden /ˈɹɪdn̩/
  1. ^ Although the symbol r technically represents an alveolar trill, which is absent from most dialects of English, it is nevertheless widely used instead of ɹ in phonemic transcriptions.
  2. ^ Some accents, such as Scottish and much of the American South; see whine and wine and voiceless labiovelar approximant
  3. ^ Often transcribed /e/ for RP, for example in Collins English Dictionary.
  4. ^ Often transcribed /a/ for RP, for example in dictionaries of the Oxford University Press.
  5. ^ See bad-lad split for more discussion of this vowel in Australian English.
  6. ^ See low back merger for more discussion of this vowel in American English.
  7. ^ Alternative symbols used in British dictionaries are /ɛː/ (Oxford University Press) and /eə/.
