PDF File Introduction to Phonetics for Students of English, French, German and Spanish. This Introduction to Phonetics was originally a booklet produced in the School of Modern Languages at the University of Southampton, to serve as a background and further reading text for the Articulatory Phonetics component of our first-year Linguistics unit. It focuses on the structure and linguistic function of the vocal tract, the classification of vowels and consonants, the International Phonetic Alphabet and its use in phonetic transcription. Though phonology/phonemics is not explicitly covered, the references to broad and narrow transcription in the final section will point the user in that direction.
