Sample text

Different languages will use different sets of sounds, sometimes overlapping considerably, and sometimes hardly at all (TUTORIAL – VOWELS AND VOWEL-LIKE SOUNDS IN ENGLISH). German, Dutch and English use many of the same sounds, but differ more from languages like French and Portuguese. LABELLINGSOUNDS/ARTICULATIONSANDCLASSES Phoneticians need to identify and label the sounds they perceive as making up the speech of a language. They do this with a symbolic representation consisting of a set of main symbols to identify not just the sounds but also the articulation or gesture associated with the sound.

Is the voiced alveolar flap commonly used in US English in this context. Educated speakers in the south of England use the usual released /t/ in this position; Cockney speakers regularly substitute a glottal stop here; and American speakers usually use a voiced version of the /t/. These variants are optional, and because of this have to be specified in the speaker’s plan for the pronunciation of the word. The plan is transcribed using the / bracketing. e. e. the representation must be unique to the particular morpheme later, and /t/ is used to distinguish it from others.

The articulators rarely stop moving during a phrase or sentence, and only briefly on a nondiphthong long vowel or during the stop phase of a plosive consonant. Even in these cases there is some movement or tendency to move towards the next sound’s position for the articulators. We speak of a continuous trajectory for the articulators, interrupted from time to time by pauses. The articulators do not always pause in a synchronous way; for example, during a voiced alveolar fricative [z] the tongue may pause for a few tens of milliseconds, but the vocal cords keep moving.
