CIED 4013: Capstone Course for Foreign Language Licensure Language Sounds Chapter Three Dr. Freddie A. Bowles
Week Three September 10 and 12 Goals: • to become familiar with the English sound system • to become familiar with the TL sound system • to compare the two sound systems
Objectives • Students will be able to show evidence of their understanding of the English sound system by using the terminology for manner and place of articulation for consonants and vowels. • SWBT compare English with the TL sound system by using a Venn diagram to show similarities and differences.
What is phonetics? • Phonetics is the general study of speech sounds. • The smallest unit of sound is a phoneme. • There are 40 phonemes in English. • We use the phonetic alphabet to transcribe the sounds (phonemes) of a word.
Types of phonetics • Articulatory: how speech sounds are made • Acoustic: the physical properties of speech as sound waves • Auditory: the perception of speech sounds through the ears
Talking the talk • Manner of articulation: • How are these sounds made? • Place of articulation: • Where do these sounds come from?
