Articulatory Phonology examines the relationship between phonological structure and articulation. The theory is based on the assumption that speakers’ and listeners’ lexical, mental representations stand in a principled relation to articulatory actions of the vocal tract. In this view, the basic informational and articulatory unit is the gesture, a linguistically relevant action of the vocal tract. Throughout the course we will examine the basic ideas and current developments of Articulatory Phonology framework by exploring different areas in which the framework has been applied: speech production (gestures, syllables, prosody, speech errors), speech perception and speaker interaction. We will further discuss some experimental methods for acquiring articulatory data. Students are not advised to take this class without having taken LING 512.

Course Requirements:

Grading will be based predominantly on class preparation, assignments, a term paper, and presentations of two readings.

Class Format:

The class meets twice a week.
