Phonetics and Phonology

1.4; 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5 (ex.)

4.1, 4.2, 4.3; Ref. 3.8

Homework: 3.6, #1-7, #8 (choose any three) [Mar 5]


Phonetics

Phonetics

  • The sound inventory — and how those sounds are formed — is one of the things we know about our language


Secondary function

Secondary Function?

  • According to evolution theories, vocal process is a secondary function. Organs of speech have a primary function:

    Breathing, expelling toxins and waste material, tearing flesh, masticating, swallowing

  • Lungs, teeth, tongue, uvula, interior of mouth


Secondary function1

Secondary Function?

  • Only glottis & vocal folds appear primarily involved with speech


Secondary function2

Secondary function?

  • Critical thinking question:

  • If language is what distinguishes humans from other life forms, can it be said that speech is a secondary function?


Phonetics1

Phonetics

  • See p. 49 chart of speech production mechanism

  • We need to understand the organs and processes involved in the

    * “Pulmonic egressive airstream mechanism”


Language sounds

Language sounds

1. Consonants

2. Vowels


1 consonants

1. Consonants

  • * We can know three things about consonants:

    A. Voicing

    B. Place of articulation

    C. Manner of articulation


Voicing

Voicing

  • We call speech sounds “voiced” when the vocal folds in the glottis vibrate as the sound is produced

  • m

  • s ~ z

  • p ~ b

    (see pg. 50)


Place of articulation where the sound is made

Place of articulation*(where the sound is made)

(see pg. 51)

  • Lips (bilabial)

  • Lips and teeth (labiodental)

  • Teeth (interdental)

  • Alveolar ridge (alveolar)

  • Palate (palatal)

  • Velum (velar)

  • Glottis (glottal)


Manner of articulation how the sound is made

Manner of articulation*(how the sound is made)

  • Stops

    stopand release air flow

    too, pie, key


Manner of articulation

Manner of articulation

  • Fricatives

    friction restricts the airflow

    fill, so, she


Manner of articulation1

Manner of articulation

  • Affricates

    combination of stop + friction

    church; judge


Manner of articulation2

Manner of articulation

  • Nasal

    air passes through nose

    nose; home; sing


Manner of articulation3

Manner of articulation

  • Liquid

  • air flows around tongue, in a liquid manner

    ride; line; all


Manner of articulation4

Manner of articulation

  • Glide

    tongue glides from one location to another

    boyish; shower


Homework

Homework

  • Prepare the following for next class meeting:

  • Chart P. 54, Examples pp. 45-47

    Know the symbols and the three-part description of sounds they represent

  • Ex. 3.6- due Mar 5

    • Homework counts 10 pts on 2nd Midterm


2 vowels

2. Vowels*

  • Vowels are the nuclei of syllables

    boat; dog; cow


We can describe vowels in three different ways

We can describe vowels in three different ways:

(see chart p. 57)

  • Tongue height* (high or low);

    /a/, /i/,

    /a/, /u/


Vowels

Vowels

  • Tongue position – front or back*

    /i/ - /u/

    /o/ - /e/


Vowels1

Vowels

  • Lips rounded or unrounded*

    /i/ - /u/

    /e/ - /o/


Diphthongs

diphthongs

  • Tongue shifts from one vowel position to another to articulate diphthongs*

    /ai/

    /au/

    /oi/

    /ou/

    /ei/

    [Note: Some Englishes from other regions posses different diphthongs]


Phonetics2

Phonetics

  • Every language has a distinct set of language sounds


Study objectives

Study objectives

We are expected to be able to know

  • the phonetic symbol for each sound of English

  • the voicing

  • place of articulation

  • manner of articulation

    for each English sound


Study objectives1

Study objectives

  • *Three part description of consonants


Study objectives2

Study objectives

  • *Three part description of vowels:

    tongue height, tongue position, and roundedness

    • disregard ‘lax’ and ‘tense’


Study objectives3

Study objectives

  • This knowledge of speech mechanics and the standard manner of transcribing speech provides the foundation for all of our subsequent study of language and linguistics
