課程概述

課程目標
This course is an intermediate phonetics course aimed at the graduate-level. This course plans to examine general phonetics and deals with the phonetic structures of a variety of languages, with coverage of basic auditory/acoustic phonetics. The main function of the course is to provide the essential background for further work in phonetics and laboratory phonology at the Master’s and Ph.D. level, which students of foreign languages, general linguistics, and speech pathology should find useful. However, this course presupposes some basic knowledge of phonetics. If you want an introduction to basic phonetics and transcription, you should enroll instead in an undergraduate phonetics course (FL3137). 
課程要求
Your final grade for this course will be based on the total number of points you accumulate during the semester. There will be NO curving. You will be evaluated according to the following criteria:
Participation 10%
Homework 10%
Quizzes 10%
Midterm 20%
Final 25%
Project 25%

Participation
Graduate courses are meant to advance knowledge, and successful learning requires the active engagement or involvement of the student. Learning at the graduate level requires that you connect yourself with information and materials and actively participate in class. In addition to coming to class on time, class participation also includes critical thinking, in-depth discussions, hands-on acoustic analyses, experimental designs, etc.

Homework
Homework will be assigned accordingly. It is a good idea to look through an assignment at the beginning of the week before it is due, and to try to think of solutions to the questions that are not explicitly assigned as well as to those that are. They can be a guide to what material will be emphasized in the lectures and on the exams. (The weekly reading assignment in the Schedule below sometimes gives hints on which questions are particularly helpful.) In writing up the assigned questions, keep in mind that these are exercises to practice knowledge; they are not mini take-home tests. So, don’t agonize over any single
particularly difficult question at the expense of others. Points will be taken off if the assignment is incomplete or carelessly done. Also, because solutions to assigned exercises will be discussed in class on the day that the homework is due, late homework CANNOT be accepted.

Quizzes
Except for the first week, quizzes will be administered at the beginning of each meeting session and will cover the required reading texts for that session, which I will assume that you have already read prior to class meetings. Please do not be excessively anxious about the quizzes, as they are meant to be simple checks for common basis, rather than detailed
exams. They will be graded as pass/fail only and the passing grade is 70%. There will be no make-up quizzes, as we will go over them right afterwards.

Exams
The midterm will cover material from the first section of the course, and the final will be comprehensive. No make-up exams can be given except in the case of death in the family or dire documented medical emergencies. Any other reasons for a make-up exam would only be possible if prior consent from the instructor is obtained.

Course project
You are required to do a course project on a topic of interest. There will be a presentation period at the end of the semester. The topic has to be of phonetic/phonological interests and is investigable by using empirical methods. Four milestones, described below, are set throughout the semester for the course project.

(1) CP1: Research plan (20%)
This is due on 10/17 and should include a brief sketch of what you propose to study. You should include your research question(s), method of study, predictions of results, and implication of the study. Relevant literatures should also be included.

(2) CP2: Progress report (20%)
This is due on 11/7 and should include a detailed method used in the study. You should carefully lay out the details regarding the target language(s) of study, speakers, equipment used, and procedure. Preliminary results should also be included.

(3) CP3: Presentation (30%)
You will be given 30-min presentation time slot on 1/2 . During this time-slot, you are to highlight whatever significant findings you have found in your study. The style of presentation should be formal. You can use whatever media you please. You will be graded on both your presentation skills and audience response.

(4) CP4: Final report (30%)
This is due on 1/9 , Friday. 10% of the grades will be deducted for each late day. It should be no more than a 20-paged, double-spaced, polished report incorporating all the comments you have gathered throughout the semester, including the final presentation. The report should follow a formal format, with at least seven sections—abstract, introduction & literature review, methods, results, discussion, conclusion, and references.

A note on collaboration
Students often find it helpful to form study groups with classmates to discuss the readings regularly. The course instructor encourages such cooperative study habits. However, each student must work independently in writing up his/her works.
