What Is The Full Form of IPA?

The Full Form of IPA is International Phonetic Alphabet. IPA is an alphabetic system of phonetic notation (also known as phonetic script or phonetic transcription which is the visual representation of speech sounds) based primarily on the Latin alphabet.

The IPA has represented only oral language, other than writing e.g intonation,  phones, phonemes, phones. The extensions to the International Phonetic Alphabet may be used to represent additional qualities of speech, such as sounds made with a cleft lip and cleft palate, tooth gnashing and lisping.

Led by the French linguist Paul Passy in 1886, a group of  British & French language teachers formed what would come to be known from 1897 onwards as the IPA later officially adopted by the International Clinical Phonetics and Linguistics Association in 1994.
