Unlike text search tools, Sketch Engine can determine parts of speech (noun, adjective, verb…) and grammatical categories (singular/plural, present/past, passive…) making it possible to quickly look up specific word combinations or even grammatical structures.

Intro to Linguistics: Phonetics

In the coming weeks, we'll be discussing the main fields our new Intro to Linguistics series. We'll be starting the series with phonetics. Phonetics is the branch of linguistics that studies the physical properties of speech sounds. In general, phoneticians don't focus on the meaning of the sounds, as that is considered a part of phonology, which we'll discuss next time. Instead, phonetics is all about the sounds you make, how you make them, and how they are received by a listener. There are three basic areas of study in the field of phonetics. Articulatory phonetics This is the study of how speech is produced. Acoustic phonetics Just as you might guess, this is the study of the transmission of speech from speaker to listener. Auditory phonetics The field of phonetics has many practical applications in everyday life. RSA Animate - Language as a Window into Human Nature.
