Amcanion cyffredinol

This module provides students with a deeper understanding of how to conduct research in phonetics. The module will focus on phonetic transcription, acoustic phonetics and the experimental investigation of speech production. It aims to provide students with information on a selection of techniques for transcribing and analysing spoken language, allowing the student to make sense of speech data collected in the field or in a laboratory.

Aims:
1. to introduce students to the advanced study of phonetics including speech production and the acoustic analysis of speech,
2. to make students aware of the concepts, theories, and methodologies characteristic of this field of study,
3. to provide training in how to conduct research in this area of study, including data collection and analysis.

Cynnwys cwrs

This module will cover topics such as:
- experimental data design,
- recording speech,
- sociophonetic variation,
- speech technology,
- analysing the acoustic properties of sounds,
- reading waveforms and spectrograms,
- relating waveforms and spectrograms to articulation,
- analysing fundamental frequency (pitch),
- using speech analysis software.
