Online phonetics resources Page maintained by Jennifer Smith ( Last revision and link check: August 2016 This is a list of web sites that might be useful in an introductory phonetics course for classroom demos or homework assignments; most of these sites include audio, images, or interactive material. The list began in 2000 with some of the phonetics resources compiled by Karen Steffen Chung (see LINGUIST List posts 11.1812, 11.1869, and 11.1964). It has grown to include other sites that I have found via LINGUIST List posts, web searches, and word-of-mouth — students in my Linguistic Phonetics and Introduction to Language courses have discovered some fantastic links.

Phonetics: Beats and Rhythm –[Multimedia-English] One of the things that makes English difficult to understand for foreign students is its particular rhythm. Many languages are syllabic, that means that every syllable takes the same amount of time to pronounce. In some languages stressed syllables take longer than unstressed syllables, but still, the pronunciation unit is the syllable. English is different, we don't care about syllables, we don't even care about words, it's all about beats (sound units). Every beat takes the same amount of time to pronounce. A beat may have one syllable, ten syllables, one word or five words, but it still takes the same amount of time (more or less).

Phonology and the brain: it’s all in the features. …and the vision that was planted in my brain still remains, within the sound of silence. (Simon and Garfunkel, The sound of silence 1964) Sound is made of waves. One fundamental trick of speech is that it surfs those waves by slicing them up into discrete bits. Recently, Mesgarani et al. (2014) (see also ) have shown how our brains respond to speech in this cut up fashion, attending to the very features that linguists uncovered after decades of research, in their efforts to make sense of the sound systems of human languages in a branch of Linguistics known as Phonology. This is a beautiful example of convergence between Linguistics and Neuroscience, reminding us (once again) that Knowledge is one, regardless of disciplinary borders and research styles.

Brain Section Multitasks, Handling Phonetics and Decision-Making Scientists from Brown University and the University of Cincinnati found that a portion of the brain that handles decision-making also helps decipher different sounds. Details are in the July issue of the journal Psychological Science. PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — A front portion of the brain that handles tasks like decision-making also helps decipher different phonetic sounds, according to new Brown University research. This section of the brain — the left inferior frontal sulcus — treats different pronunciations of the same speech sound (such as a ‘d’ sound) the same way. In determining this, scientists have solved a mystery.
