Requirements (what you need to use the site)

Here's a short list of the things you need on your computer in order to use this site most effectively:


Quick warning about syllabic [n]:

After you've set up your font as described above, compare the following two symbols:

  n̩      ƞ  

If they look different, you're done. Go learn phonetics. If they look the same, then you're unfortunately the victim of yet another piece of Microsoft incompetence. If you're using Windows XP, installing Service Pack 1 has been known to solve the problem. Otherwise, you're just going to have to use your imagination and pretend that every time you see [ƞ] (but not [ŋ]!) you're really seeing an [n] with a little vertical line under it, just like the little vertical line under the following: [m̩], [ɹ̩], [z̩]. I'll warn you again when the time come. Now go learn phonetics.
