By the end of the course, students will be able to: 1. Describe the phonetic differences of a variety of accents. 2. Analyze the characteristics of foreign-accented English and identify the influence of the speakers’ first language.
This course is designed for students who are writing theses on phonetics. We will read a number of articles related to the topics on accents of English including both native and non-native varieties. All students are required to read the articles critically and actively participate in class discussions. Through reading, we will also study the organization of academic papers, and how writers collect and present phonetic data to support their argument.
Reading materials will be distributed in class.
