Presentation: Phonetics/Phonology and other fields of study: sociolinguistics, speech recognition, perception, computational linguistics.
Assuming no prior knowledge of Phonetics and Phonology, the course introduces students to the basic notions of these fields. The first part of this course explores the production, perception, and acoustics of speech sounds. More specifically, the course introduces the basic notions of sound structure, demonstrates how sounds are transcribed using the International Phonetic Alphabet, and explores the distinctive features of sounds. The second part provides an introduction to suprasegmental structure. The course is arranged thematically: each week, we will examine a major topic providing theoretical, methodological and empirical work.
