IPA Council member Marija Tabain and colleagues (to whom many thanks!) have produced a map of locations of languages for which Illustrations of the IPA have been published. Click on a language to access text and audio for its Illustration: https://richardbeare.github.io/marijatabain/ipa_illustrations_all.html.

We've noted on our charts webpage that in some fonts the Laminal diacritic is a square rather than the intended rectangle - because the official "representative glyph" in the Unicode Charts used for this character (U+033B) is a square, with the name "Combining Square Below". The Unicode Technical Committee has now approved a request by Lorna Evans of SIL International and Patricia Keating of the IPA to change the glyph to a rectangle. SIL will modify its fonts accordingly, and it is hoped that eventually other font developers will do so. Many thanks to Lorna for this initiative.

The Association is pleased to announce that Illustrations of the IPA from 2001 through 2013 are now freely available from the Journal of the IPA website,
https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/journal-of-the-international-pho.... Click on "Illustrations of the IPA - free content" to see a list, or access individual Illustrations from contents of back issues. Many of those who find the Illustrations useful are not members of the IPA and thus do not have members' access to the material published in JIPA. We hope that by making them freely available, they will be more widely used.
