The charts below show the way in which the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) represents ModernHebrew language pronunciations in Wikipedia articles. Since Modern Hebrew has both non-Oriental and Oriental pronunciations in Israel, certain letters may be transcribed differently depending on the background of the speaker. See Hebrew phonology for a more thorough look at the sounds of Hebrew.
Long vowels (in Tiberian Hebrew) can be transcribed using the IPA gemination sign ː: the word for "hand" would be יָד /jaːd/ in absolute state and יַד־ /jad/ in construct state. Indicating normative consonant gemination uses a double consonant: גַּנָּב ('a thief') /ɡanˈnav/not/ɡaˈnːav/
