Kirshenbaum, X-SAMPA IPA with Quail … Marrakesh from the BBC … die Kasse 17th of June, 2006 ANTE·MERIDIEM 12:38
For the throngs of you who prefer to do your editing in an emacs and find Kirshenbaum IPA and X-SAMPA more comfortable and more complete than the ad-hoc mapping supported by the editor’s IPA input method, here’s a development of that file to support typing Kirshenbaum or X-SAMPA and generating the corresponding Emacs characters for the real IPA.
To use it, you would download the file, type M-x load-file RET
~/ipa.el RET (in your editor, assuming you’ve saved it to your home
directory), C-u C- kirshenbaum-ipa RET. Now you can type
/ k ; o : / comfortably and have /kʲoː/ appear on screen, from where you can copy it to
browsers and other applications that don’t support M-x tetris
RET (or indeed M-:
(dolist (entry '("fee"
"fie" "fo" "fum")) (message "%s"
entry)) RET ).
Here’s a great photo; it’s an aerial shot of central Marrakesh, and at first sight it’s hard to believe that this warren of courtyards and casbahs is a city.
Word of the day: касса is Tajik for till, or counter in a shop, roughly what the German word means.
