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.

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).

Read phonetic script 1 Read phonetic script 1 The following exercise is for you to practise reading phonetic script. The words of the text you have to reconstruct have been transcribed in phonetic script. The transcription refers to the text being spoken at a normal speed by a native speaker, so words may be linked together and there may be elisions. Reconstruct the text by guessing what words are hidden behind their phonetic transcription. You can click on each line to hear it.
Pronunciation Pronunciation Lessons Intonation - Intonation is the rising and falling sounds of the voice when speaking. Intonation (Part 2) - Phrasing - In addition to the intonation of a statement, there is another aspect of speech that indicates meaning -- phrasing. Intonation (Part 3) - Contrast - Once the intonation of new information is established, you'll soon notice that there is a pattern that breaks that flow. When you want to emphasize one thing over another, you reflect this contrast with pitch change.
