Wikipedia has some nice vowel charts, available at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:SVG_vowel_charts.

Example (Korean vowels):

Example (Australian English diphthongs):

AuE diphthongs

Similarly, there are vowel and consonant charts in tabular form; Markdown doesn't seem to support tables easily.

Example (Ubykh consonants):

Ubykh consonants

How should we produce charts like these and use them in Markdown? While it's possible to take screenshots as I've done here, that is hard to use, and hard to edit the output, so it's not a good solution.

I see that the UX Stack Exchange has integrated a UI mockup editor. Perhaps something similar could be added on Linguistics (and maybe the sites on specific languages).

  • Interesting... If you want to ask for the feature, tag it with feature-request and remove support, as there is no such feature.

  • I've had some luck making vowel charts in LaTeX using Tikz, not sure how easily you could take them from that .pdf format and put them onto here though. Commented Jan 24, 2013 at 15:01
