@vivien hmm, after readings the comments, I found myself not fully understanding the scope and uses of IPA. Maybe bit more than can chew? ^^

Well, I just want the sounds the "hiragana base characters" make. The small chart here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiragana#Writing_system "あ,い,う,え,お,か,き,く,け,こ,さ,し,す,せ,そ,た,ち,つ,て,と,な,に,ぬ,ね,の,は,ひ,ふ,へ,ほ,ま,み,む,め,も,や,ゆ,よ,ら,り‌​,る,れ,ろ,わ,ゐ,ゑ,を" It's around 47. Not really concerned too much with ん anyway or long vowels. Just those listed really.

"Furigana (振り仮名?) is a Japanese reading aid, consisting of smaller kana, or syllabic characters, printed next to a kanji (ideographic character) or other character to indicate its pronunciation." Ah, yup.

@istrasci Yes, what he said. Sorry, if I am not expressing myself well. It's out of what I know.

I think that's it. Is it possible you can map the kana sounds using that system, which is ultimately what I would like. I myself don't know how to use it.

@istrasci Yes, but looking for something can be used for any language as well, not just Asian languages. Or, imagine if communicating with ppl who don't know English. Need some international standard we can refer to
