Course Contents
This course begins with the exploration of key linguistic concepts surrounding the study of phonology and phonetics in the English language. Phonology is a branch of linguistics that comprises the study of the sounds of human speech. This module explains and illustrates the basic concepts of phonology with a focus on English, and also explains the relationship between phonology, syntax and morphology. Phonetic analysis of English words and sentences will be part of the module. Such theoretical knowledge in English language phonology will be used to develop a firm pedagogical background in English language teaching. Students will be asked to prepare lessons and language learning materials that apply their knowledge of English phonology and grammar
