How would you describe Cutty Ranks to a deaf person?

Is there a technical terminology that could describe different styles of popular singing, in the same way that linguists might describe accents? Try your hand at a couple of examples inside. [more inside]

[hɛlp mi si junikod ɪn maɪ deɪtəbeɪs, ɔr maɪ dætəbeɪs ivɛn]

I'm using Navicat Lite to connect to my Oracle research database (Mac OSX). Much of my data is in IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet). These are unicode symbols. Is there a way to display the IPA/Unicode in Navicat? Or some other GUI? Or is there some addon/code/plugin/whatever that will show me the symbols? [more inside]

How do I collect dictionary definitions for ~350 words to put into a database?

I have a list of about 350 words that I'm putting into a database that I'm building from scratch. For each word in the list, I'd like to include its American English dictionary definition (preferably American Heritage Dictionary), UrbanDictionary entry, and Wikipedia page link (I realize that entries may not exist for some columns for many of these words). Is there some way to streamline or data-mine this process, so I don't have to look up each word individually in 3 separate sources x350+, not to mention all the copying and pasting? [more inside]

Please help me solve a maddening problem with Doulos and IPA

Desperate IPA situation! I've opened up an old Word doc that was created using SIL Doulos or SIL IPA93 fonts. These are now defunct. I currently use Doulos SIL and Charis (both unicode, hooray!). The document is substituting certain alphabet characters for much needed IPA symbols. I need to know what those masquerading alphabet characters used to be in IPA. [more inside]

Help creating a keyboard layout shortcut.

Mac users: Can somebody please tell me how to set up a keyboard shortcut or script that allows me to toggle between U.S. keyboard and International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) keyboard layouts? I switch these on and off a LOT when I'm using my iMac and Macbook, but am tired of constantly going up to the little flag dropdown menu in the Finder (which I have to do repeatedly as I switch from program to program, since the drop-down window change doesn't seem to apply globally, but rather only within the current program you have up top). I know there's an easier way, I just haven't gotten around to figuring it out or setting it up. Thanks! [more inside]

I need to create about 8 gender-neutral, speech-synthesized audio files of variants of a made up word for a research project I'm working on. What program should I use to do this?
