    Hi everyone,

    Punctuation is not transcribed in a phonemic or a phonetic transcription.

    There are several ways to transcribe a pause in speech according to the transcription system you are using (for instance, in the Tone and Break Index system now used by most intonationists), but you do not usually use such systems when you are interested in transcribing phonemes or their phonetic realisation.
