In Your Mouth (and Ear) Phonology
Professor Sharon Manuel Northeastern University
Mon, Wed, Jan 18, 20, 25, 27, 01-05:00pm, E39-335

Enrollment limited: advance sign up required (see contact below)
Participants requested to attend all sessions (non-series)
Prereq: See Description
This course will examine acoustic, production, and perceptual patterns of speech. The primary focus will be on consonant acoustics, with some exploration of coarticulation models, casual (normal!) speech phenomena, and perceptual recovery, with attention paid to how the above might affect more macroscopic phonological patterns. The course time will be divided between lecture-discussion and lab-tutorials. Students should have a basic command of articulatory phonetics, and phonological features, as well as familiarity with a number of relatively common phonological processes.
