I’m enjoying my phonetics class. This is an easy week for me; my students are giving reports. Today we heard about Korean, Kiswahili, German, and Hindi. Megan introduced us to an online tutorial from the University of Iowa. It includes a graphic display of the organs of speech in action, plus audio and video of a real speaker. You can see examples in Spanish, German, or American English (here)
My new found blogging friend Berkeleyscot also posted a comment in Doric Scots today on her site (here):
Far aboot’s the Mannie Bush and his wee chum, Cheney?
They’re nithin bit big Jessies. The Country an the world is a geen tae Hell, an they’re doon in their bunker.
Fit we need is a BANKER ye twits – nae a BUNKER.
It would be nice if she could include an audio link so we could hear her.
