Course Description

This course builds on the introduction to phonetics and phonology covered in Linguistics I to show you the full complexity of pronunciation. First, we will refresh previous knowledge on acoustic and articulatory phonetics, focusing on the physiological, acoustic and cognitive aspects of speech sound production. A detailed discussion of articulation of speech sounds will include particularities of vowels and consonants and insights into acoustics. With a view to course projects and assignments, a brief introduction to software used for acoustic analysis will be provided and we will analyze a few current papers on phonetic aspects of English. In the second half of the course, we will discuss the phonology of English phonemes, syllables and intonation. We will then have a look at speech perception. The course will end with a brief consideration of phonological variation across varieties of English in the World.
