Linguistic Phonetics: Course Description

Offered by the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at MIT in Cambridge, MA, this OpenCourseWare concentrates on how we produce sounds and distinguish others' sounds in speech. The course covers the relationships between linguistic acoustics and other language techniques. Course materials also explore how phonetics influences interpretation of a spoken sentence. Throughout the course, students combine grammar, semantics, syntax and phonetic theory to enhance their understanding of linguistics. Linguistics professor Dr. Edward Flemming teaches the course. Students need prior coursework in linguistics to complete this graduate level course.

Included in this OpenCourseWare is a syllabus, a list of recommended readings, lab projects, assignments, a list of external links and a full download of the course material. Those interested in this free course should visit the Linguistic Phonetics course page.
