IPA Source

To help singers, teachers, and all those interested in the correct and knowledgeable performance of vocal literature, the IPA Source supplies literal translations and also International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) transcriptions, teaching pronunciation and finer qualities of speech that are part of oral language such as intonation and the separation of words and syllables.

The goal of IPA Source is to promote the comprehension and accurate pronunciation of foreign language texts in art song and opera in order that the singer may imbue each syllable with the appropriate emotional content.

What are trial databases?

Trial databases give the IUP community an opportunity to preview a database. Positive feedback from students, faculty and staff will encourage the library to consider purchasing the database to make it a permanent part of the library holdings.

As such, these databases are not available for long periods of time! If you believe that a database will be essential to your studies and research, please make yourself heard by contacting Emily Szitas.
