ENGL 353 - Sounds of English (3 credits)

(Prereq: Completion of ENGL 101 and ENGL 102 with a grade of ‘C’ or better) This course introduces the systematic study of the sounds of the English language. Beginning with descriptions of the articulation of sounds through discussions of the acoustic properties of sounds and ending with the ways in which sounds work together to form the words that we have in the English language, the course examines all elements of the English sound. English vowel and consonant sounds are not static entities and we examine the variation in such sounds across English dialects. Application of phonetic and phonological methods in “real world” situations is also highlighted. This course is ideal for students interested in linguistics, speech language pathology, foreign languages, English as a second language, and education. F, S.
