↑ 1.01.11.21.31.41.5While used in the Dragon article "Ay pronunseeAYshun gyd", this character should be avoided on this wiki as a representation of a sound, as it is not immediately obvious how it should be pronounced.
<1st_syllable> – <9th_syllable>
Up to 9 syllables can be spelled out phonetically and separated by pipe symbols (|). The template will automatically create an IPA pronunciation guide, followed by a phonetic spelling. If it is unable to properly determine the IPA (because improper/ambiguous phonetic spellings were used), the article will be flagged as an article with broken pronunciation.
Syllables should be spelled out using the options given in the "Pronunciation Table" shown to the right. The phonetic spellings given in most sourcebooks should already be found in the table, but there may be a few exceptions that you will have to adapt using your best judgment.
If a syllable receives stress, it should be typed in all-caps.
To use this template for multiple words, use _ as its own syllable for the space between the words.
For the two special characters ash (Æ,æ) and schwa (ə), the template can only handle the UNICODE characters, not the HTML codes. (For example, use æ, not æ.)
Optional. The source(s) for the pronunciation. Use the usual <ref> tags.
Optional. The filename of an .ogg audio file of the pronunciation.
Optional. If this is an alternate pronunciation, set this to true or yes. By default, a pronunciation will be prefixed with "pronunciation:"; if alt is set, the pronunciation will instead be prefixed with "or:".
Optional. If more than one syllable of a longer word receives stress, provide which syllable (by number) receives the strongest stress. If two or more syllables are stressed, and this field is not used, the template will assume that the first stressed syllable is primary.
Note: This template usually should be surrounded by parentheses.
