It provides a set of symbols to represent the pronunciation of Franco-Provençal in Wikipedia articles, and example words that illustrate the sounds that correspond to them. Integrity must be maintained between the key and the transcriptions that link here. Changes should reflect consensus; especially if the conventions of this key are already in wide use, any substantive change to it should be discussed on the talk page first so as not to create discrepancies between the key and transcriptions.
^ ab/h/ varies in realization: [h], [x] and [ç] (the latter also a realization of other phonemes) all occur.
^ abcdefghiThere appears to be considerable variation among [dz], [dʒ], [ʒ], and [ɟ], as well as among [ts], [tʃ], [ʃ], and [c], as a result of the palatalization of /ɡ/ (or /d/) and /k/ (or /t/), respectively. Other possible realizations, which also occur separately, are [ð], [v], [z] for the voiced phoneme and [θ], [f], [s], [h] for the voiceless one.
^The most common pronunciations include [ʁ], [ʀ] and [χ], albeit in many regions as well as in Switzerland and Italy the older [r] is still very common.
