The contribution aims to provide a new proposal, to be used in manuals for foreign students, for the phonetic transcription of partially palatalized (half-soft) consonants in Ukrainian using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). Several issues are taken into consideration, including: IPA limitations on the expression of some specific features of the palatal correlation; the orthographic rendering of partially palatalized consonants in Ukrainian and its correspondence to their common pronunciation; the hardening of some palatal consonants and the different ways of pronouncing the half-soft consonants. The text analyses the works of scholars (mainly Ukrainians) who have examined the phonemic system and the phonetic evolution of partially palatalized consonants in Ukrainian.
