Ilau.png Documentation for Template:Hv-IPA. [edit]
This page contains usage information, categories, interwiki links and other content describing the template.

This template generates automatic IPA transcription for High Valyrian entries. It uses Module:hv-pronunc as its back end.



Term used in the calculations. Most of the time the page name is used but there are a couple respelling rules mainly for stress of loanwords. Use ́◌ (acute accent) to place the stress in a syllable whose nucleus is a short vowel. Use ̀◌ (grave accent) instead if the vowel is long—i.e. if it already has a macron. Imperative forms of verbs, and terms lengthened for coordination if they occur in a phrase, must also have their stress indicated manually.

Additionally terms with hiatus and any forms or phrases derived from them that contain hiatus should have a · placed between the vowels in question. If the vowels are the last in the word, then the stress has to be placed manually. This may be fixed in the future.
