I am writing a linguistics MA thesis in LaTeX, and I will possibly need to use the Uralic Phonetic Alphabet, for example in glossing environments. What would be the best way to do this? I've seen there are separate packages to facilitate using IPA, but my department generally prefers UPA. Mostly I would need letters like a̮, š and ĺ. The source text is in UTF-8 Finnish.
If I input
I get the three characters. So it mainly depends if the font has them.
