The vertical bars are used when one refers to a spelling (some'd use < >
instead -- a German habit?).
The square brackets are used when one refers to pronunciation (phonetics).
Like this, you can say |know| is [n@U].
There's also a possibility to distinguish between phonemic and phonetic
notation, phonemic notation being represented with slashes / /. However,
not all linguistic theories recognize phonemes.
Like this, you can say the /t/ in |stone| is [t] but the /t/ in |tone| is
