Have done phonology as a course in both my bachelors and masters. Two
techniques I used: one is to get a verbal description. For example- the
sound 'O' is like a sprouted bean and the diph thong ei is a simple
combination of small letter e and caps I. The second technique is to make
the shapes using thermocoal sheets (cutting them to make the shape of
various phonemic symbols). This is much easier to learn.
If people can understand syllabols, which I am sure they do, it would be
possible to lay the stress mark. I hope this goes at least to some extent in
clarifying your question.
