I was glad to see someone ask about IPA symbols for wordperfect...
I have been battling this problem for years - how do I get phonetic
symbols with an IBM computer??? I'm on the verge of switching to
Mac, despite the expense and time it will cost me, just because they
have phonetic characters at the touch of a key... So if anyone has
an answer,I'd be really happy to hear it.

(By the way, Ives Goddard described a system he invented in the
SSILA newsletter, but it required very specific software and
hardward... if anybody wants more info on that, I can put you in
touch with him.)

A caution to those looking for IPA symbols for a word processor: the brochures
for Multi-Lingual Scribe, a multilingual word processor marketed by Gamma
Products of the USA, lists IPA as one of the "languages" available as an 
option. In fact, what they supply is *not* IPA, but something like the 
symbols used in the pronunciation keys of dictionaries, and as far as I can
tell, none of the special characters used by linguistics and phoneticians
are included.

I would be interested in making contact with anyone working on
situation semantics and information retrieval.
