# How can I get the ð symbol with TIPA?

According to the description, \dh should do the trick -- but although TIPA is installed and although \textbeta and \textgamma show up just fine, \dh produces an error:

"Command \dh unavailable"...

Any ideas?

Do you need the fontenc package? Detexify says it should be \dh and that worked for me, with or without tipa

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{tipa}
\begin{document}
\dh
\end{document}


The tipa package will give you \dh but only within an IPA environment (either textipa{\dh} or \begin{IPA} ... \end{IPA}). Independently of this, the [T1] encoding (plus a font that has the relevant glyph) will enable \dh without loading tipa at all (but obviously not other phonetic characters.) –  Alan Munn May 24 '13 at 17:59
tipa loads fontenc internally. If you are going to load it manually you should use the noenc option when loading tipa, like it says in section 3.1.1 of the documentation. But in any case \dh should be available even outside textipa and the IPA environment (it is Input 1); within tipa you can use D and that's enough: \textipa{D} –  jja Aug 16 '13 at 18:38
