LIN 301

Phonetics and Phonology

Back to "Fall 2014" courses

Why does the accent move around in words “finite”, “infinite”, “infinity”, “infinitesimal”, “infiniteness”? Could “tqnqnk” be a word in some human language? (Yes.) Phonologists study such facts to determine what a possible sound system is and the unconscious computations people perform in order to speak and comprehend utterances. A basic but fairly technical introduction to the science of speech sounds: their articulation, acoustic properties, and mental representation. Data and problems from diverse languages.

Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:00-10:50am
