How do we define vowel sounds? What are all the different vowels we can make? In this week’s episode, we return to the International Phonetic Alphabet to look at vowels: what parameters we use to define them, what variation we see across languages, and some ways we can play with them to create more categories of sound.
We definitely had fun making this one, and we hope you like it! Looking forward to hearing what you all think. ^_^
Brand new episode! I’ve gotta say, one of my favourite things about this one is the thumbnail the graphics team picked. How did they find one where Moti’s doing the same gesture as Cony on his t-shirt!
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!
