Phonetics for Speech and Hearing Sciences

SPHS-S111

Course Description

This course provides an introduction to the sounds of human language. In addition to learning to transcribe speech using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), we will learn how to describe speech sounds in several domains: the articulatory domain (how speech sounds are produced in the human vocal tract), the acoustic domain (their form in the acoustic medium), and the perceptual domain (how listeners process the incoming speech signal).
