COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This is a three credit hour course that introduces the students to the study of Articulatory Phonetics of English. Together with the theoretical presentation of speech production mechanism and basic phonetic terminology, students will get extensive training on the practical side of pronunciation and phonetic transcription (namely the International Phonetic Alphabet) throughout the course.


COURSE OBJECTIVES:


Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

1- Define Phonetic technical terms

2-Describe the physiology of speech.

3-Illustrate and name the vocal organs.

4-Identify the symbols for transcribing English and Arabic.


  1. Identify places of articulation

  2. Identify manners of articulation

  3. Illustrate sounds represented by IPA symbols.

  4. Distinguish between English vowels

  5. Distinguish between English consonants

  6. Provide single phonetic characteristics of segments.

  7. Distinguish between British and American pronunciation.

  8. Provide accurate broad transcription of connected,

  9. Provide accurate narrow transcription of connected speech.

  10. Identify and correct specific pronunciation problems.

  11. Apply basic phonological rules for English consonant allophones.

  12. Label and reproduce articulatory diagrams of consonants and vowel sounds.

  13. Identify simple phonological processes, assimilation, deletion, insertion.

  14. Describe and label simple waveforms (Voice Onset Time)

  15. Identify common occurring vowels and consonants
