Template:IPAkeys The charts below show the way in which the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) represents Czech language and Slovak language pronunciations in Wikipedia articles.

Stress is always on the first syllable.

English approximations are in some cases very loose, and only intended to give a general idea of the pronunciation. See Czech phonology and Slovak language for a more thorough look at the sounds.
