FWIW, I would use canIPA if I were more interested in phonetics in
general (rather than limiting myself to Sanskrit phonetics). From what I
can gather from the author's website, canIPA seems to be a well thought
out system. I myself have had many problems in trying to fit Sanskrit
phonetic description to the IPA framework, especially in not finding
many phonetic symbols appropriate for the exact Sanskrit phonetic
description which is available from traditional (native Indian) works
*And* the author's attitude on normative phonetics
is music to my ears because I myself (and the traditional Indian
phoneticians of yore) have always been normative phoneticians.
Anyway... Have these characters actually been proposed? Is anyone taking
up this work?
