In studding the alphabet or characters in some languages, one has to look at the speech of the word and the sounds that go along with it. This is called phonetics. In order to do any type of phonetic analysis on the section of text I will be transcribing it into IPA: ɪðəɪɪəɪəəəɔθɛɑʃɪŋəəɒɔɪɪəəəɪɑəəəəɪɑðɪɪŋɑəɛʃəɔðæɛəðəɪðəəəəɛəəɪəəðɪæɪɑəɛəʃðæəðəəɪθɛəəəθɪəɪðɪðæəɛɛəəθɛəəəəɪəɒðæəðəɪəʊʊðæθəəæʃɑʃəɪθɪæəɔəɔɪɛ
When evaluating the transcribed section of text, the analyzing reveals, there are 270 constants and 151 vowels. As shown in Table 1. This data will be further dissected in order to give a more complete analysis of the section of text. To understand how and where the sounds are shaped in the forming of words. Table 1: Constants and Vowels
A consonant is a sound in spoken language that is characterized by a constriction or closure at one or more points along the vocal tract. There are several categories of sounds that I will be analyzing: the place of articulation of the sound, the manner of articulation of the sound, and whether or not the sound is voiced. Table 2 will be used as a visual reference in this next section. Table 2: Sounds
Place of Articulation →BilabialLabiodental
Voiced or Not Voiced→-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
Manner of Articulation ↓
*note: letter or symbol =constant, #=how many in the selected text When one says a constant it can either be voiced or voiceless. Voicing refers to the articulatory process in which the vocal cords vibrate or whether they...
