IPA stands for International Phonetics Association. It is an association that organises a set of characters used to describe the pronunciation of words. Their goal is to provide a common set of characters to describe the pronunciation of all languages around the world. It even has symbols to describe the click sounds used in Southern African languages.

The other meaning of IPA is India Pale Ale. But I am sure languages nerds were looking for the International Phonetics Association rather 😀
