The aim of the lectures is to provide an insight into the major aspects of English pronunciation, phonetics and phonology and to help students understand the most important components of speech mechanism, articulation of speech sounds in general, and the English articulatory setting. The lectures will form the theoretical basis for enhancing students’ awareness of speech production with special regard to better English pronunciation. The lectures will cover both segmental and suprasegmental areas, and proper attention will be given to the specific nature of prominence in English and the function and realisation of a variety of tunes. The lectures are designed in such a way as to facilitate the application of the subject matter during the follow-up seminars. During the course the choice of basic model will be the educated Southern variety of British English.
The aim of the seminar is to provide an insight into the major aspects of English pronunciation, phonetics and phonology, to help students understand the most important components of speech mechanism, articulation of speech sounds, and encourage students to gain conscious control over speech production on both segmental and suprasegmental levels.
