The charts below show the way in which the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) represents Berber language pronunciations in Wikipedia articles.

In the interest of pan-dialectal legibility, the Berber Latin alphabet omits the partly phonemic contrast found in some Berber language varieties (notably Kabyle and Tarifit) between stops and fricatives.
