Subject: XSAMPA question 

The problem is, every resource I can find doesn't seem very complete from the 
perspective of an English speaker with know prior knowledge of 
phonology. For example, I've been through every XSAMPA chart I can 
find looking for the vowel sound in the English words "lake", "rain", 
"base", "fail", etc. It's a common enough sound, but I can find any 
trace of it in the XSAMPA chart. 


Breathe! :)
