Phonetics is the study of speech sounds, and is generally divided into three broad areas:
- Articulatory phonetics: how do humans physically produce speech sounds?
- Acoustic phonetics: what are the acoustic properties of speech sounds?
- Auditory phonetics: how do humans perceive speech sounds?
In this series, we’ll aim to cover the basics of articulatory phonetics. As new posts and videos in this series get made, links will be added to this index.
