In IPA a consonant can have different places of articulation such as Bilabial, Labio-dental, Dental etc.

I want to create a IPA chart that doesn't take much space. For that purposes the words are too long. Instead of using words, I would like to describe the places of articulation of the IPA characters with symbols. Is there an existing set of symbols for the places of articulation?

    Use numbers. There are no IPA symbols for phonetic categories, only for phones.

    I don't know of any conventions either, but instead of numbers I'd advocate single letters, or, if that causes confusion, two-letter sequences. They would likely be much easier to remember.
