I'm pleased to see that Eric Bakovic has started a new phonology blog phonoloblog.
It shows promise, already gathering a growing collection of interesting semi-political commentary on the DNC. It's definitely worth a read. I'm also very pleased to see that it's published under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 license. I look forward to tracking this blog, although it seems to have some technical growing pains right now (The RSS feed for phonoloblog (... there, now syndicated at phonoloblog)
seems to be broken; it returns ill-formed XML has been fixed, and there's no helpful way to make comments other than signing up for an account of one's own).**
There's a nice post about [fǝˌnɛɾɪktɹænˈskɹɪpʃn̩] on the web. He writes:
It seems to me that what we need is one or more of the following, in ascending order of preference:
- Someone to edit the html ASCII code page to make it more useful for us phonologists.
- Someone to find a page in which the above has already been done.
- Someone to suggest and/or provide something better than having to type in (or copy-and-paste) ASCII codes for this purpose.
I’d also like someone to help me locate the ASCII code for IPA secondary stress, if it even exists … I ended up having to transcribe two primary stresses in this post’s title because I couldn’t find the secondary stress code.
