Speech and Hearing Sciences | Phonetics of American Speech
S111 | 4383 | To Be Announced
This course involves the exploration and study of the American
English pronunciation through application of the International
Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). The course will include an introduction to
basic linguistic terms and basic anatomy and physiology related to
speech production, followed by extensive work in broad (phonemic)
transcription and narrow (phonetic) transcription. In the first half
of the semester transcription of normal American-English will be
practiced, followed by transcription of disordered as well as non-
native American English speech.
There are two components to this course:
1. The familiar textbook reading and lecture with written exam, and ;
2. Audio tapes for "ear-training", to be practiced on your own, with
in-class assessment of transcription skills.
