By the completion of the course, students will be able to: 1. Explain the basic terminology and concepts of phonetics and phonology. 2. Collect and analyze phonetic data to use them in presentations. 3. Understand the organization of an academic article on phonetics and phonology.
The first half of the semester is the continuation of Junior Seminar (Linguistics) 2-1. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of spelling reform and analyze the manipulation of spellings observed in text messages. In the second half of the semester, we will read academic articles on phonetics and phonology and practice giving presentations on various topics such as intonation and connected speech phenomena. In these presentations, students are encouraged to collect and analyze data to support their arguments.
