Using the phonemic chart for autonomous learning Encourage your learners to record the pronunciation of new words they meet, both in and out of class, in their vocabulary notebooks. You can also set homework related to pronunciation, which learners can check using the online chart before bringing to class. As mentioned above, you could ask them to write 5 new words from the class in phonemic script for homework, to be used to test their classmates. Similarly, if you want to focus on a sound which is problematic for your learners, ask them to find 5 words including that sound and write them in phonemic script. With a little training, your learners could prepare their own 'minimal pairs', for example with the sounds /i:/ and /I/.

The International Phonetic Alphabet and the IPA Chart The official International Phonetic Alphabet, and its organization in a chart, is maintained by the Association. As noted in our 1999 Handbook (Appendix 4), modifications have always been the result of "members making proposals for changes, which were published in the journal and voted on by the Association's Council" (p. 196). Only changes to the alphabet or chart that have been approved by the Council can be considered part of the official IPA. For further information, please consult the Secretary. Reproduction of The International Phonetic Alphabet The IPA chart and all its subparts are copyright 2015/2005 by the International Phonetic Association.

What's the pronunciation? This is a pronunciation game I made up called 'What's the pronunciation?' Preparation I collect a list of about 10 words students have mispronounced. Procedure I divide students into teams of 2-4 people I spell out the first word, e.g., C-U-L-T-U-R-E I ask the teams to confer on the correct pronunciation and to pick a spokesperson Then I ask each team's spokesperson what the correct pronunciation is I mark on a piece of paper if it's right or not. After each team has given its guess, I allot points on the board to the teams that pronounced the word well I continue with the next word.

Consonant cluster - Wikipedia In linguistics, a consonant cluster, consonant sequence or consonant compound is a group of consonants which have no intervening vowel. In English, for example, the groups /spl/ and /ts/ are consonant clusters in the word splits. Some linguists[who?] argue that the term can only be properly applied to those consonant clusters that occur within one syllable.

Educationcing: Minimal pairs and beyond The construction of rules stating allophonic distributions. These rules are based on the identification of phonemes, for which we relied on the two fundamentai tools of predictability of occurrence and invariance of meaning: if two sounds occur in non-overianning, predictable sets of contexts, and if substituting one for the other does not make a semantic difference, then those two sounds must necessarily be allophones of a single phoneme. On the other hand, if those two sounds can occur in the same environments, producing different words, they belong to different phonemes. This diagnosis is confirmed by the commutation test, which involves putting different sounds in a particular context, to see if minimal pairs result. An example for English consonants is given in:-

Welcome! Skills Speaking Listening Overview - The Cognitive Foundations of Learning to Read: A Framework From the cognitive perspective of learning to read, reading comprehension (or, simply, reading) is the ability to construct linguistic meaning from written representations of language. This ability is based upon two equally important competencies. One is language comprehension–the ability to construct meaning from spoken representations of language; the second is decoding–the ability to recognize written representations of words. These two main foundations of reading are represented by the two supporting legs in the graphic depiction of this cognitive framework. Both of these are complex abilities themselves, each based on other abilities, as shown in the graphic.
