Sample text

Three main types are recognised: fricatives, stops or plosives, and a further, less common, type: affricates (TUTORIAL – CLASSES OF CONSONANT IN ENGLISH). STATIC MODEL In speech, a model is static when it considers segments more or less in isolation without paying much attention to how and why segments behave differently in dynamic running speech. SOUND PRODUCING SYSTEM The overall system comprising the lungs, the supraglottal cavities (including the oral and nasal cavities) and the articulators which border the cavities – lips, teeth, palate, velum, uvula, tongue, pharynx – all of which can be manipulated to produce sounds sufficiently distinct to be usable on a consistent basis in language.

That is why the phonemic symbol /l/ is visually associated with the utterance plan symbols /lj/ and /lɣ/ and the symbols of the phonetic transcription [lj] and [lɣ]. The use of ‘l’ throughout shows we are dealing with a representational family or grouping, while the subscript diacritics ‘j’ and ‘ɣ’ and the brackets ‘/’ and ‘[ ]’ indicate the systematic way in which variant members of the family or group are associated. THEAIRSTREAMMECHANISM Most speech sounds are made using a pulmonic egressive airstream.

2, of an articulatory score, illustrates the point. We tend to think of segments as having articulatory or sound targets (TUTORIAL – TARGET THEORY), but the idea of a string of individually specified segments tends to blur as the string of planned segments is rendered – turned into actual articulations and sounds. Thus the boundaries for any particular intended sound tend to be lost in the continuous movement between articulations. Often, particularly when we speak quickly, there is not enough time to hit the target, let alone dwell on it.
