What is phonetics?
It shows you how to pronouce/say certain letters, phrases, and words. Accented letters, such as é, use the symbols above the letter to show you in textual form how the …letter sounds. All vowels in the English language have different types of accented forms due to the long and short way they can be said. For example, "e" can be pronounced "eee" or "eh".
The phonetic alphabet is used to make spellings clearer over phone or radio - kilo for letter k, foxtrot for letter f. Police and other organisations use it to make sure t…hat spellings are clear to the person hearing it. For example a car registration number - F123 ABC would be Foxtrot, 1, 2, 3, Alpha, Bravo, Charlie. The full Phonetic Alphabet is as follows; Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta, Echo, Foxtrot, Golf, Hotel, India, Juliett, Kilo, Lima, Mike, November, Oscar, Papa, Quebec, Romeo, Sierra, Tango, Uniform, Victor, Whiskey, Xray, Yankee, Zulu.
Phonetics is a branch of linguists that is concerned with the way words sound. It also studies how those sounds are perceived by those who hear them.
- Because pronunciation is the biggest thing that people notice about your English and one should study it even if he/she thinks that he/she can already communicate in English…. - It helps us to understand the ethics of sound and it enhances our pronunciation skills and also develops confidence in ones self.
There are three main branches of phonetics: i) Articulary Phonetics ii) Acoustic Phonetics iii) Auditory Phonetics
The phonetic difference between is whereas the vowels can be spoken alone, the consonants cannot be spoken alone. Secondly when reading the vowels, there is no closure of …the mouth or the throat at any given point while for consonants there is closure at some point.
Answer You can find a list of phonetics at the site below.
