Different languages have unique phonetic and phonological systems. These systems affect how a particular language is produced. In particular, phonetic and phonological systems of English as a global lingua franca contribute to intelligibility because users of this language come from different linguistic and cultural backgrounds that give rise to unique accents and pronunciation styles. Given the importance of intelligibility in English-speaking environments, this course learns both segmental and suprasegmental phoneme, phonological rules and the sound production which is studied in articulatory phonetics. Pronunciation Practice will be experienced by the students. By the end of this course, the students are able to pronounce English words correctly and become fluent speakers.
