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,…
