ENG 332 Linguistic Phonetics and Phonology

Uses a linguistic approach to explore speech sounds as physical entities (phonetics) and as elements in language systems (phonology). Participants will learn the linguistic methods employed to describe, classify, and analyze speech (articulatory phonetics) and "see" speech to better understand its physical properties (acoustics). Participants will also learn to find and describe general speech sound patterns in natural languages and the systematic relationships between the actual sound produced and the abstract cognitive patterns.

Prerequisite: ENG 320 or ENG 334.
