Find language by phonemes
This search tool allows you to find languages by specifying which phonemes are present in their phonological inventories and/or by specifying phonemes which phonemes are absent from their inventories.
To include phonemes in an inventory, or to exclude them, click on the chart below. To include a particular phoneme in the inventory, click on the appropriate IPA symbol in the chart below, so that it turns blue, like this: t. To exclude a particular phoneme from the inventory, click on the appropriate IPA symbol twice, so that it turns red, like this: t. Clicking on an IPA symbol a third time will deselect it entirely. Note also that you can click on the RESET label in the lower right hand corner of the table to deselect all symbols.
The set of languages that matches the inventory that you have specified appears below the table. This set of languages consists of the languages whose phonological inventories possess the phonemes in blue and lack the ones in red.
The default setting of the table excludes very rare segments. To include all segments in the table, including very rare ones, click the SHOW MORE PHONEMES label at the bottom of the table. Scroll down to see more.
