With all the sounds we can make with our mouths, how do we know which ones are important for our language? In this week’s video, The Ling Space takes a look at phonemes, the basic sounds of language, and how we can identify them, how we tell them apart, and how our brains react to them.
I really love sounds, and all the different ways we can use them, so I’m really looking forward to hearing what people have to say about this! ^_^
Big fan of this one, and (SPOILERS) of the second part coming next week! I was way into phonetics and phonology at university, and it’s fun to see the excitement never really goes away. LANGUAGE!
