Sample text

Are the parts of the mouth that are moving the same for /m/ and /d/, or different? Tip For this exercise it may help you to use a mirror, or to work with a friend, so that you can look at each other while you produce sounds. Comment You will probably have noticed that the lips move for /m/ and that the tip of the tongue moves for /d/. In the previous unit we saw that the vocal tract refers to all the passageways above the larynx through which air can flow when we produce speech. An articulator is the name given to a part of the vocal tract that can be used to form a constriction.

Hatch’ is CVC, as at the end of the word represents only a single sound. ‘Ring’ is either CVC or CVCC, depending on your regional accent. Most English accents do not pronounce the at the end of ‘ring’, but accents of Birmingham and surrounding areas may do. Finally, ‘robber’ is either CVCV or CVCVC. The double only represents one sound, but accents vary as to whether they pronounce the final , as we will explore now. 8 Rhotic and non-rhotic accents Some speakers pronounce an ‘r’ sound at the end of words like ‘robber’ (as in the previous exercise), and some speakers do not.

Comment a) For SSBE adults, ‘cap’ is /kVp/, ‘Meg’ is /mVɡ/ and ‘ring’ is /rV˛/. b) and c) Where the adult uses a velar, Katy uses an alveolar. This is a pattern called fronting, in which sounds are replaced with ones that have a place of articulation further towards the front of the mouth. It is common in young children until the age of around three and a half years. d) Katy would likely produce ‘king’ as /tVn/, fronting both the velars to an alveolar place of articulation. Thus, she may be difficult to understand, as ‘king’ and ‘tin’ will be pronounced in the same way.
