The charts below show the way in which the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) represents Haitian Creole language pronunciations in Wikipedia articles.

English approximations are in some cases very loose, and only intended to give a general idea of the pronunciation. See Haitian Creole phonology for a more thorough look at the sounds of Haitian Creole.

Notes[संपादित करें]

  1. The contrast between /ɣ/ and /w/ is lost before rounded vowels; the two phonemes merge as /w/ in that environment. Some orthographies of Haitian Creole follow the etymology of the word, using ‹r› for /w/ before a rounded vowel where this comes from an original /ɣ/, e.g. gro /ɡwo/ "big" (cf. French gros /ɡʁo/). The official orthography follows the modern pronunciation of the word and uses ‹w› for /w/ in all cases, so that /ɡwo/ is spelled ‹gwo›.
