This course builds on the fundamental knowledge of phonetics and phonology covered in Linguistics 1. The first section will include a description and discussion of acoustic and articulatory phonetics. focussing on the physiological and cognitive aspects of production and reception. This will include more detailed discussion of sound classes, vowel position, the place and manner of consonant articulation, as well as a more detailed look at the auditory system. With a view to course projects and assignments, transcription skills will be further developed and a brief introduction to software used for speech and auditory analysis will be provided.
The second section will cover both segmental and suprasegmental English phonology. The phoneme inventory and phenomena such as phonological processes in connected speech will be further analysed. Within the realm of suprasegmental phonology, special focus will be given to the structure of the syllable and to prosody (pitch, intonation, rhythm, intensity). The concept of ‘discourse intonation’ (Brazil 1985) will also be considered. The course will end with a brief consideration of phonological variation across World Englishes.
Course readings and course requirements and assignments will be discussed in the first class.
