Things that make you go “mmmm”… When is an “N” not an “N”? Is the letter “L” always pronounced the same way? Why do some people pronounce all the “R”s in words, while others seem to drop some of them? We’ve all heard people with a range of different accents. But have you stopped to think how the accents differ? This course will extend your knowledge of articulatory phonetics: the processes by which speech sounds are produced and introduce you to phonological theory to explain which differences are significant for conveying differences in meaning.
