I'm using TIPA and I'm trying to do something like this:


Which works, but I want the @ character to be an upper index. How do I do this?

I've tried this


but it doesn't work. Any ideas?

  • Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

I'm not familiar with the tipa package but you can use the \textsuperscript command for typesetting superscript in text (not math) mode:


enter image description here


According to the documentation of TIPA, you can also use the command \super which is an abbreviated form of \textsuperscript. Like \textipa{t\super{h} k\super{w} a\super{bc} a\super{b\super{c}}}.
