Sample text

These are the three criteria for the description of vowel phonemes. (1) Closeness/openness, or tongue height in American terminology, refers to t h e d i s tance between the tongue and the palate (and at the same time to the position of t h e lower jaw). If the tongue is high, as in the last sound of the word bee, it is close t o t h e palate, and we therefore speak of a close vowel [geschlossener Vokal]. If the t o n g u e i low, as in the third sound of the word starling, the gap between it and the palate is m o r e open, and we speak of an open vowel [offener Vokal].

You could also repeat the words he and who. D o the same with the open sounds [33, a:, ae, a:, ae, a:, ae, a:]. This time, you could repeat the words bad and bard. Again, you should be able to notice the movement of the tongue from the front of your mouth to the back. 4a Write the monophthongs in the following words as IPA symbols and categorise them as close, open, or mid. Then categorise them as either front, back, or central vowels. 4b Write down the diphthongs in the following words as IPA symbols and group them according to whether they are centring, closing to III, or closing to /u/.

We usually say that it has 1 2 monophthongs and 8 diphthongs. English also has typical vowel sequences that consist of three sounds. They a r e called t r i p h t h o n g s [from Greek triphthonggos, 'tripple sound ]. The 5 English t r i p h thongs (pronounced /tnfGorjz/) are / e i s / as in player, / a i a / as in fire, /oia/ as in royal^ /sua/ as in lower, and / a o s / as in flour. Unlike diphthongs, however, triphthongs are n o t analysed as separate vowel phonemes. They are interpreted as closing diphthongs followed by a schwa.
