CLUSTER Vowel cluster Consonant cluster This deals with the pronunciation It is a group or sequence of that students give to synthetic words consonants that appear containing orthographic vowel- together in a syllable without a cluster and analyzes the observed vowel between them. pronunciations . Initial cluster Medial clusters Final clustersInitial two-consonant clusters Spanish and English mightmay occur in both English and have from two up to four- Spanish has no clusters in final positionSpanish while three-consonant medial consonant clusters while English words containing fromclusters just take place in except English which may pile two up to four final consonant clusterEnglish. up to five-consonant clusters: - may perhaps occur: -VCC; -VCCC ; - VCCCCCV-. VCCCC. Four final consonant cluster is by and large the outcome of the plural forms, third person singular or possessive nouns in English. Intrasyllabic medial cluster When it belongs to the second of English: /nd/: <second> Spanish: /pɾ/: <probar> the two syllable peaks between English: /pɹ/: <pray> which they appear as medial /nst/: <against> Italian: /pɾ/: <premere> /mpts/: <attempts> Intersyllabic medial cluster It is when one consonant of the cluster belongs to the first syllable and the other(s) to the second, so syllable division occurs between the members. English: Intrasyllabic <address> Intersyllabic: <improper>

Cyrillic alphabet Greek alphabet The Cyrillic alphabet is an alphabetic writing systemThe Greek alphabet is a set of twenty four letters that has developed in the First Bulgarian Empire during the 10thbeen used to write the Greek language since the late 9th or century AD at the Preslav Literary School and is used inearly 8th cebtury BC. It is still used today. It is the first and various languages, past and present, of Eastern Europeoldest alphabet in the narrow sense that it notes each and Asia, especially those of Slavic origin as well as nonvowel and consonant with a separate symbol. Slavic languages influenced by Russian.
  12. 12. Description The general principle of the IPA is to provide one letter for each distinctive sound (speech segment).This means that it does not use combinations of letters to represent single sounds, the way English does with ‹sh› and ‹ng›, or single letters to represent multiple sounds the way ‹x› Linguists represents /ks/ or /ɡz/ in English. Symbols and soundsAlthough IPA is popular fortranscription by linguists, it is also The International Phonetic Alphabetcommon to use Americanist phonetic is based on the Latin alphabet, usingnotation or IPA together with as few non-Latin forms assome nonstandard symbols, forreasons including reducing the error IPA possible.[5] The Association created the IPA so that the sound values ofrate on reading handwritten most consonant letters taken fromtranscriptions or avoiding perceived The International Phonetic the Latin alphabet would correspondawkwardness of IPA in some Alphabet (IPA) is an alphabetic to "international usage“.situations. system of phonetic notation based primarily on the Latin alphabet. The IPA is designed to represent only those qualities of speech that are distinctive in spoken language: phonemes, intonation, and the separation of words and syllables. UsageAlthough the IPA offers over a hundred andsixty symbols for transcribing speech, only a Brackets and phonemesrelatively small subset of these will be usedto transcribe any one language. It is possible [square brackets] are used for phoneticto transcribe speech with various levels of details of the pronunciation.precision. A precise phonetic /slashes/ are used to marktranscription, in which sounds are describedin a great deal of detail, is known as a narrow off phonemes all of which are distinctive in the language,.
  13. 13. TRANSCRIPTION It is a system of notation that represents utterances or partial utterrances of a language pronounced by people in general. Some details might be ignored or included in the transcription. Therefore, depending on the level of detail abstraction, the hearing limits and IPA conventions, two kinds of transcription appear: Phonemic or Broad Transcription and Phonetic or Narrow Transcription. Broad transcription Narrow transcriptionAlso identified as PhonemicTranscription, it is It is also named as Narrow Transcription. It is athe notation that represents utterances of a notation that represents variants of a specificlanguage by indicating only the significant phoneme. It captures as many as possible detailsand underlying sounds (phonemes) that make up which are represented by the diacritics provideda word. It ignores as many as possible details and in the IPA.captures . [ ˈpha:ɹk ̚ ] [ˈga:ɹʔņ ] /ˈpaɹk / /ˈgaɹdən / [phɹɪˈtɛ:nd ] [ˈkhɔ:ɫ ] /pɹɪˈtɛnd / /ˈkɔl / STRESS It is another important feature which is often represented in phonetic and phonemic transcription. Every single word has a stressed syllable. The vowel sound of the stressed syllable is often longer, louder and higher in pitch. Currently, to show main stressed syllables a superscript accent mark is being placed before the stressed syllable ( ˈ )
  14. 14. Marking stress in both monosyllabic and multisyllabic words is some didactic advice for students to beable to use and pronounce properly the stressed syllables in words. This will help them distinguish thepart of speech the words belong to as well as recognize the phonemic and/or phonetic changes thathappen within the phonological group and that mostly implies changes in word meanings;e.g. / pɹəˈdʒɛkt / /ˈfɪltər / / ˈblækˌbɔɹd / /ˈblækˌbɔɹd / / ˈpɹadʒɪkt / Verb Noun Noun Noun Noun to stick out an apparatus piece of work beyond an edgecontaining paper that needs skill, tool used in Notice how or surface.through which a effort, and classroom to stress placement careful planning.

Vowels are not formed by blocking Lo n airflow; instead by passing air through different shapes of spread neutral roundedVowel w the mouth and different positions of the tongue and lips. The vocal folds are adducted and vibrating. That is whygrid every English and Spanish vowels sound is voiced. Lip shape DIPHTHONGS When vowels occur in combinations, they are called diphthongs. A diphthong starts in one position (nucleus) and moves to another position (the glide) or viceversa. Therefore, a diphthong is a speech sound which is usually considered as one distinctive vowel sound of a particular language but really involves two vowels, with one vowel gliding to the other. VOWEL PRODUCTION Dimensions: - Voicing: Every vowel sound is voiced. - Vowel quality: Simple and Complex. - Tongue position: High, middle and low. - Area: Front, central , back. - Muscle tension: Lax and Tense. - Lips shape: Spread,, neutral and rounded.
