I would like to know if it is possible to use MediaWiki API to get the
International Phonetic Alphabet of a word.
For example, I would like to retrieve the IPA "niːs" from the word
Nice as found in http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Nice
If yes, how is this possible?
If not possible, is there a way for me to help in order to make this possible?
No I'm afraid this is not possible. The MediaWiki API only covers the software
and not the content. IPA will be done differently on different wikis using
templates or just inline text. You will have to parse the wikitext yourself.
