A brief introduction to the International Phonetic Alphabet is provided. This course also familiarizes students with the basic concepts, principles, terminology, and goals of phonology.




The Course Objectives:

The main goal of this course is to introduce students to phonetics so that they can improve their language through a precise description of sounds in English. The course also aims at distinguishing accents and pronunciation differences between British and American English. The course aims to enable students to read phonetic symbols appearing in the language dictionaries.
