> aspects of human speech in the modern phonetic and phonologic traditions.

> proposal to the Unicode Consortium for augmentation of the Unicode
> Standard's current treatment of linguistic transcription symbols.
> Linguists with specific knowledge of transcription symbols which ought
> to be addressed in such a proposal are encouraged to join and contribute
> to this list.
