Why is important to know howsounds are articulated?Understanding the process and anatomy of speech can assist teachers in teaching ELL learners.
Sounds can be voiced or voiceless.Voiced sounds require vibration of the muscles in the larynx that form the vocal bands.The space between these bands is called the “glottis.”
Speech results from a complex interaction between several systems in the body.The brain, the sense of hearing, the lungs, larynx, vocal tract, and tongue all work together to produce the sounds of the English language.
1. Approximant and palato- alveolar sound, the tongue is held behind the alveolar ridge (not touching). Voiced2. A palatal approximant sound. The tongue is in the position of a close front vowel (similar to /I/). The soft palate is raised and the sound glides quickly to the following vowel /ə/. Voiced3. A lateral sound, a partial closure is made by the blade of the tongue against the alveolar ridge. Air is able to flow around the sides of the tongue. Voiced
4. A plosive bilabial sound, total closure is made using both lips. The soft palate is raised and is unvoiced.5. Plosive velar sound, closure is made by the back of the tongue against the soft palate, it’s unvoiced.6. Affricate palato alveolar sound. The tongue tip, blade and rims close against the alveolar ridge and side teeth. The front of the tongue is raised and when the air is released there is audible friction, it’s voiced7. Fricative glottal sound. Air passes from the lungs through the open glottis, causing audible friction, unvoiced
