Example text

We looked at the fundamentals of articulatory phonetics including voicing, places and manners of articulation, voice onset time, and dimensions that are relevant for vocalic articulations such as tongue height and backness, as well as lip positions. We also reviewed some common non-English sounds that might be of relevance. Finally, we had a brief account of syllable and suprasegmental features such as stress, tone, intonation, and length. 24 PHONETICS EXERCISES 1. Examine the following transcriptions.

For example, “# __ a” indicates that [s] occurs in 38 PHONOLOGY word-initial position (# stands for the word boundary) before the vowel [a], as exemplified in word number (4). When we have more than two sounds in question in the group, it is customary to look at them pairwise. Thus, we start with [s – S]. The numbers next to each environment cited indicate the items from the data above. [s] u __ # (1) # __ e (2) a __ @ (3) # __ a (4) # __ o (5) o __ @ (5) # __ u (6) l __ u (10) p __ a (11) [c] # __ i (7, 9, 10, 11, 12) a __ i (8) When we examine the distribution of the two sounds in question, we see that they can have the identical context for the preceding environment, namely at the beginning of a word.
