Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject we will provide an introduction to the theory and practice of acoustic phonetics, as well as an introduction to important articulatory phonetics techniques such as electro-palatography (EPG) and electro-magnetic articulography (EMA). We will also provide a grounding in the analysis of intonation, with particularly emphasis on the ToBI (Tones and Break Indices) model. Theoretical background and practical analysis skills will be equally emphasized.
