A World of Englishes: The International Phonetic Alphabet

A World of Englishes: The International Phonetic Alphabet | TELT | Scoop.it

The current revision of the IPA chart (above) starts with a large table showing consonant sounds, or phones, made on a pulmonic egressive airstream (i.e., with air from the lungs). Place of articulation (POA) is indicated by which column a symbol is located in. The passive articulator is usually indicated, i.e., the part of the oral cavity which remains in place while the active articulator – often the tongue – moves towards it; e.g., if a sound is labelled “alveolar” it means the tongue moves towards the alveolar ridge. Manner of articulation (MOA) is indicated by row. Where voiceless and voiced pairs of consonants are given, the one on the left is voiceless. The usual way of describing a consonant is to use a VPM label, where VPM stands for “voice place manner” – so [t] is a voiceless alveolar plosive.

Dynamic dialects

Dynamic dialects | TELT | Scoop.it

Dynamic Dialects is the product of a collaboration between researchers at the University of Glasgow, Queen Margaret University Edinburgh, University College London and Napier University, Edinburgh. Dynamic Dialects is an accent database, containing an articulatory video-based corpus of speech samples from world-wide accents of English. Videos in this corpus contain synchronised audio, ultrasound-tongue-imaging video and video of the moving lips. We are continuing to augment this resource. For modelled International Phonetic Association speech samples produced by trained phoneticians, please go to Seeing Speech.

Shona Whyte's insight:

This looks like an interesting project - some elements online already.

English phonemic transcription

"Phonology practice using the international phonetic alphabet for English language learners and teachers" by Ted Power.  

 

Shona Whyte:

Many links to places to learn about English pronunciation and practice with vowels and consonants.  Some quite old sites, but useful practice in transcription and phonetics nonetheless.

Many exercises for matching the transcription to the words. Practicing these exercises will help you improve your understanding of the sounds vs the words as they are spelled.
