Introduction to Phonetics
3 credits
Professor Karen Steffen Chung

Please see Karen Chung`s homepage at:
http://homepage.ntu.edu.tw/~karchung/
for more information.

Eligibility:

This course is primarily designed for future English teachers in the education program 教育學程; non-education DFLL students are also encouraged to join this class, particularly those planning to continue in linguistics. Other students with adequate background (completion of an introductory linguistics course or its equivalent) may also enroll, up to the class size limit of 35 students. Priority will be given first to education students and second to regular DFLL students. Students lacking the requisite background should speak with the professor on the first day of class to determine whether they are suited to taking this course.

Textbook:

Ladefoged, Peter. 2006. _A Course in Phonetics_, 5th ed., with CD. Boston: Thomson Wadsworth. 310pp. Paper. Available at Crane's 文鶴 for about NT$500; request a class discount. Please note that we are using the *5th* edition this year.

Other supplementary texts will also be drawn on. Extensive Web work will be assigned, so each student must have convenient and reliable access to a computer with an Internet connection, also a headset with earphones and a microphone for listening and recording on the computer.

Course overview:

This course is designed to train future English teachers in the phonetics and correct pronunciation of standard American English. It will offer a solid grounding in phonetic theory, but the main emphasis will be on sharpening students' sensitivity to the sounds of language, and on actual practice, mainly through oral reading of the textbook and class presentations. Each student will keep a pronunciation journal to record problem areas of pronunciation, and will be expected to take class notes on material not covered in the textbook. A significant portion of the work for this class will be done online independently. Occasional quizzes and d 

課程目標
To learn about general phonetic principles; to learn how the sounds of English are produced and perceived, and to thereby improve one's English pronunciation and become better able to teach accurately pronounced English to others; to deepen the students' understanding and appreciation of language and linguistic phenomena. 
課程要求
Eligibility:

Students who have successfully completed one semester of an introductory phonetics course; others by permission only. This course is highly recommended for anyone planning to do advanced work in phonetics or linguistics. A serious but friendly course!
