Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Linguistic LingField(s):  Phonetics

Query:   My daughter is taking a course in linguistics. She is looking for set
of fonts that have incorporated into them the International Phonetic
Association symbols. There are two she really needs. I'll attempt to
describe them since I obviously can't type them.

1st: looks like a capital G reversed with a tilde attached.
She says it is ''e'' upside down and reversed (shwa with r coloring)

2nd: looks like a numeral 3 with a tilde attached
(stressed shwa with r coloring)

Might there exist a set of fonts she can download for use in her college
course?


Thanks.
