The International Phonetic Alphabet IPA, Objective Transcribe English speech sounds in the international phonetic alphabet. What is the international phonetic alphabet IPA and why do we need one. The International Phonetic Alphabet is a way of transcribing speech as it s pronounced which. means it can be used to transcribe any language so long as there are symbols for the sounds. spoken in that language Because there is a one to one correspondence between symbols and. sounds in IPA there are no problems with weird ambiguous spelling silent letters etc such as. we often find in written English, In phonetics and phonology we use IPA to represent data sets of sounds from different. languages Using words written in IPA we can focus on the sounds of a language without having. to learn the writing systems of different languages many of which don t have any writing. system at all or have one that isn t based on sounds such as Chinese. You can use your textbook or handouts or the charts provided here to learn the IPA symbols. used for English consonants and vowels Since many languages have sounds we don t use in. English you may be introduced to more symbols in later problem sets but these symbols are all. you need to start transcribing English speech,Transcription Tips. Sounds Not Spelling When transcribing words into the IPA focus on the sounds not the. way that they re spelled Say the word aloud, Normal Fast Speech Be careful not to say the word too slowly and carefully because. that may change some of the sounds The idea is to transcribe the way you usually. pronounce the word in normal speech, IPA Symbols Are Not the Same As Letters An IPA symbol may look like an English.
letter but represent a different sound than that letter normally does This is especially true. of vowels Note for example that is the vowel sound in say or weigh not in. bed that would be, Ignore Silent Letters Many English words have silent letters the e at the end of. cape for example Remember the difference between cap and cape doesn t have. to do with the e it s a different vowel between k and p that is vs. Your Pronunciation May Vary Even within English people with different dialects may. pronounce words differently Again this is especially true of vowels There may be. more than one way to transcribe a word but there is only one way to transcribe the word. the way you say it, Use Your Friends If you re worried that your accent or dialect is too non standard or if. you can t tell what sound you re saying ask someone else to say the word If you re. worried about priming them to pronounce the word the way you do write down the. word and have them read it to you, The charts on the following pages give examples of the English consonants and vowels We. transcribed the words into IPA using our own dialect of Standard American English your. mileage may vary The symbols in parentheses show alternative symbols for the same sound. Phonetic Alphabet Chart Consonants of English, IPA Symbol Example Standard Orthography Example IPA. powers superhero cape,Batman Robin lab,toxic Green Lantern invisible jet.
Doctor Doom incredible Alfred,costume Doctor Octopus Hulk. Gotham Magneto Rogue,fortress Alpha Flight tough,villain Professor Xavier Batcave. threat Lex Luthor stealth,The Hulk weather scythe,Superman lasso spandex. zonk laser disguise,Shadowcat radiation Flash,treasure Mirage.

Magneto Aquaman crime,Nightcrawler spandex Robin,super strength Batarang. Lois Lane Alfred Smallville,Rogue Alfred Nightcrawler. Wonder Woman Nightwing,y united slayer,uh oh Batman. Weird Consonants to Notice, Glottal Stop Voiceless stop that s rare in English It may almost seem like a short pause. instead of a sound uh oh is the best example but it can also replace t in certain words. like mitten in some dialects, Lateral Flap A quick flap of the tongue Comes out sort of like a cross between a t and d.
sound as in butter, Palatal Glide Be careful with word medial j Compare layer with lair. Phonetic Alphabet Chart Vowels of English, IPA Symbol Example Standard Orthography Example IPA. invisibility,incredible,Doctor Octopus,kryptonite,Weird Vowels to Notice. Diphthongs Although written with two symbols these count as one sound. Schwa Always unstressed Usually comes out sounding like as in cut Found in longer. words when another vowel is stressed, Low Back Round Vowel Not everyone has this sound in their dialect Do you have a difference. between caught and cot If so then caught would be If not they are both. IPA Transcription Exercises,I Consonants, 1 Write the IPA symbol for the first sound in these words.
sniffles bronchitis,cold pneumonia, 2 Write the IPA symbol for the last sound in these words. rash concussion,lacerations hemorrhage,fracture death. 3 Write the IPA symbol for the highlighted sound in these words. alcoholism hemophilia,diabetes cancer,hypothyroidism chronic death syndrome. 1 Write the IPA symbol for the first sound in these words just the first sound of the first. word is fine if it s a phrase,obesity amnesia,epilepsy aphasia. autism attention deficit disorder, 2 Write the IPA symbol for the last sound in these words just the last sound of the last.
word is fine if it s a phrase,dystrophy sciatica,polio punched in the jaw. 3 Write the IPA symbol for the highlighted sound in these words. borderline schizoid,bipolar paranoid,obsessive compulsive antisocial. III From Orthography to IPA,1 Write the following words in IPA. chlamydia gonorrhea,hepatitis syphilis, 1a Alternate exercises for people who find STDs discomforting. fluffy bunnies sunshiney rainbows,pretty unicorns grim death and despair.
2 Transcribe the following into IPA,Do no harm,Off with your shirt let s have a look. A few days with a cooperative test subject could be worth months of theoretical research. IV From IPA to Orthography,1 Write each word in standard English orthography. 2 Write each sentence in standard English orthography. V Going Beyond, 1 If you know another language what if any sounds in that language cannot be represented. using the symbols you now know, 2 Here s a passage from another dialect of English Try transcribing into standard orthography. Can you guess what kind of dialect this is is a new vowel sound To tell what it sounds. like try saying the word nurse without the r,Natural Classes.
Objective Define a natural class Given a natural class identify the sounds that belong to it. Given a set of consonants or vowels identify what class if any they belong to. What is a natural class, A natural class is a way of describing a set of speech sounds that have something in common In. order for a set of sounds to belong to a natural class there must be some way of describing them. includes all the sounds in the set,does not include any other sounds. The set of sounds is in a natural class of voiceless stops. The set of sounds do not comprise a natural class because there is no natural. class that will include all these sounds and only these sounds One could say that they are. voiced stops and this would be correct except that would also include and. which are not part of the set, The set of sounds do not comprise a natural class because while and. are all bilabial stops is not and the natural class needs to include all the sounds in. the given set, Look at the charts next page When analyzing whether a set of consonants comprises. a natural class a good place to start is to look at the IPA chart and see if the sounds all fit. into a particular row manner of articulation or column place of articulation For. example are all nasals and are all velar sounds, Don t forget about voicing Voiceless sounds are shaded in the consonant chart.
provided All vowels are voiced, Look at combinations If there is no clear natural class in the manner or place of. articulation try looking at a combination of the two For example are labiodental. fricatives labiodental has to be mentioned in order to exclude other fricatives such as. Each sound is a natural class For example p is the only member of the natural class. voiceless bilabial stops, Vowels have a different set of descriptors than consonants Vowels are distinguished. from each other by frontness front central or back height high mid or low. tenseness tense or lax and roundness round or non round Check the chart for details. All vowels are voiced, IPA English Consonant Chart Manner of Articulation Place of Articulation Voicing. Place of Articulation, Bilabial Labio Inter Alveolar Palatal Velar Glottal. dental dental,Approximant,Approximant,Shaded sounds are voiceless.
IPA English Vowel Chart Height Frontness Tense Lax Roundness. Front Central Back,Shaded sounds are tense,Bold sounds are round. Natural Class Exercises,I List all the sounds in each class. a Voiceless f Mid,b Fricative g Round,c Velar h Low back non round. d Alveolar stop i High tense,e Velar nasal, II Determine whether the following sets of sounds are in a natural class If so what is the class. Objective Describe speech sounds in terms of their features. Consonant Feature Chart,Vowel Feature Chart,Example Problems.
What are features, From the description of natural classes it is clear that sounds have specific features for example. is alveolar as is but is not It is possible to think of every sound as a collection of. features which distinguish it from every other sound Each sound has a unique combination of. features that can be used to identify or describe it and these features are binary either the. sound has it or it does not This is indicated with a feature or feature notation For. example the sound can be described as alveolar voice continuant This set of features. describes only the sound and no other sounds, Distinctive features are features which differentiate sounds from each other Whether or not a. feature is distinctive depends on the set of sounds that one is describing For example if one. wants to differentiate from there is only one distinctive feature is voice and is. voice These two sounds have all other features in common so they are not distinctive. features in this case, Another aspect of distinctive features is redundancy there are instances where one feature is a. subset of another feature for example all nasal sounds are also consonantal The idea is. to use the narrowest feature possible use nasal instead of consonantal to describe. because the feature nasal is narrower in that it describes fewer sounds and is therefore more. descriptive Once nasal is used there is no need to indicate that the sound is also. consonantal that would be redundant since all nasal sounds are also consonantal. Describing sounds in features is similar to describing sounds in the terms of a natural class but it. is not identical It is helpful to use the natural classes as a guide but not all natural classes. correspond to features for example voiceless is a natural class but not a feature that would. be indicated by voice,List of Distinctive Features Consonants. Feature Feature Included Sounds Definition, consonantal nonconsonantal Consonants not vowels also Consonants.
not w or j, sonorant obstruent Nasals approximants Equal air pressure inside. outside the vocal tract, syllabic nonsyllabic Vowels and sometimes Can be the nucleus of a syllable. approximants, voice voiceless Vowels voiced consonants Vocal chord vibration. continuant stop Fricatives approximants Continuous passage of air. Not nasals through the mouth,nasal oral Air passes through the nose. sibilant nonsibilant Jet of air through narrow,passage toward obstacle teeth.
lateral rhotic but not Air flows along sides of the. labial non labial Use of lips,alveolar non alveolar Use of alveolar ridge. palatal non palatal Use of hard palate,velar non velar Use of velum. anterior posterior Labials dentals alveolars Produced forward of the. alveolar ridge, coronal noncoronal Dentals alveolars palatals Use of tip and or blade of the. List of Distinctive Features Vowels,Feature Feature Included Sounds Definition. high low Has to do with height of production in mouth. low high Has to do with height of production in mouth. back front Has to do with location of production in mouth. rounded non round Lips are rounded, tense lax Involve more constriction of tongue than lax vowels.
Example Problems, 1 What sound s is are described by this list of features. a labial nasal, To find this sound locate all the sounds that are labial Then find out which. labial sounds are also nasal There is only sound that is both labial and. b palatal continuant, As above locate all sounds that are palatal This list includes. Of these which sounds are continuant There are several. are excluded because they are not continuant So the set of sounds described by. the features palatal continuant is,c palatal continuant consonantal. As in b locate the palatal continuant sounds Of these sounds. which are consonantal are consonantal only is consonantal. So the palatal continuant consonantal sound is,d low back.
There are only two low vowels Only one is back, 2 What list of features describe s this these sound s Make sure there a.
