    • 6 Pages

    The systematic study of speech and the sounds of language is referred to as phonetics. Traditionally phoneticians rely on careful listening and observation in order to describe speech sounds (Nolan, 2007). Phonetics is often defined with respect to phonology. Both disciplines are concerned with the sound medium of language. Phonology is concerned with the pattering of sounds in a language (and in language in general), and is thus comparable to areas of linguistics such as syntax and morphology which deal with structural elements of language at other levels. Phonetics is more centred on the way those structural elements are "realised" in the world, through movements of the speech organs which create the acoustic signal. Several types of events in the world produce the sensation of sound which includes door slamming, violins,…

As an alternative to the generative and structural approaches, this model is based on the premise that speech patterns develop naturally from birth. A universal set of phonological processes are acquired early since we are born with the same system of processes. According to this model,…

    exercises and discussion, I have built a broader knowledge of teaching phonology. Basics like the parts of the mouth were foreign to me.

    pronunciation is not less important, since “spoken dialects are usually associated with a distinctive pronunciation, or ACCENT.”(ibid.) For instance, “everybody who speaks with a BBC accent also speaks the Standard English dialect […] [b]ut not everybody who speaks Standard English does so with a BBC accent.” (Trudgill 1999: 3) Thus, accents are often connected with a specific dialect, while dialects generally combine different variations in phonology and are therefore not linked to a particular…

    With a vast background in coursework related to articulation and phonology, I feel that phonetic transcription is strength of mine. The one downside to this portion of the analysis was the quality of the recording. Live transcription is ideal, but it is not always possible. When listening to the recording, it was sometimes difficult to make out what the client was saying. This made transcription somewhat more difficult. Listening to the recording multiple times helped solidify my transcriptions.…
