# IPA Symbols in $\rm \LaTeX$

## Failed attempts

• Tried the tipa package, and got the error “command sups already defined”.1

## Source code

I limited the above google search to academic sites only2, and I luckily found a blog post which inspired me to work out the following example. (This link to the post is included in the footnotes.)

## Explanation

Line 2: For inserting characters with accents, for example, ‘é’ and ‘ö’. Without this line, those characters won’t be processed by the typesetting system.

Line 3: For changing to a font that supports IPA symbols. Here are the sources of inspirations.

1. I gave up trying tipa after reading $\rm \TeX$ tips for linguists by Kyle Gorman.

2. This can done by appending “site:*.edu” to the query string.
