The acronym IPA can refer either to the International Phonetic Association or to the International Phonetic Alphabet. The International Phonetic Alphabet is the association’s alphabet, published periodically in chart form, usually referred to as the chart of the IPA. The chart has been refined and updated over the years to accommodate the need to represent symbolically the sounds of the world’s languages. The purpose of the association and of its alphabet has been to devise and promulgate a uniform standard for phonetic writing, known commonly as phonetic transcription.
