  Phonetics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For instance, in Chinese characters, a phonetic refers to the portion of the character that hints at its pronunciation, while the radical refers to the portion that serves as a semantic hint.
Characters featuring the same phonetic typically have similar pronunciations, but by no means are the pronunciations predictably determined by the phonetic due to the fact that pronunciations diverged over many centuries while the characters remained the same.
Phonetics was studied as early as 2500 years ago in ancient India, where there existed numerous phonetically extremely accurate treatises on the orthoepy of Sanskrit and a Tamil grammar book Tolkāppiyam (c.

 Articulatory phonetics -- Facts, Info, and Encyclopedia article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
The field of articulatory phonetics is a subfield of (The branch of acoustics concerned with speech processes including its production and perception and acoustic analysis) phonetics.
That is, articulatory phoneticians are interested in how the different structures of the vocal tract, called the articulators (tongue, lips, jaw, palate, teeth etc.), interact to create the specific sounds.
The way in which the electrodes are "contacted" by the tongue during speech provides us with important information, such as how much of the palate is contacted in different speech sounds, or which regions of the palate are contacted, or what the duration of the contact is.

 AllRefer.com - phonetics (Language And Linguistics) - Encyclopedia
Phonetics studies speech sounds according to their production in the vocal organs (articulatory phonetics), their physical properties (acoustic phonetics), or their effect on the ear (auditory phonetics).
All phonetics are interrelated, since human articulatory and auditory mechanisms correspond to each other and are mediated by wavelength, pitch, and the other physical properties of sound.
Whereas phonetics refers to the study of the production, perception, and physical nature of speech sounds, phonology refers to the study of how such sounds are combined in particular languages and of how they are used to convey meaning.

 Linguistics: Phonetics - Wikibooks
Phonetics is the systematic study of the human ability to make sounds using the vocal organs of speech, especially for producing oral language.
For the purposes of articulatory phonetics, consonant sounds are typically characterized as sounds that have constricted or closed configurations of the vocal tract.
For example, a sound such as [w] phonetically seems more like a vowel (with relative lack of constriction or closure of the vocal tract) but, phonologically speaking, behaves as a consonant in that it always appears before a vowel sound at the beginning (onset) of a syllable.

Phonetics is concerned with the properties of the individual sounds, not with the ways in which they are used or the structures which they can build.
Articulatory Phonetics is concerned with the movements of muscles and other bits of anatomy which produce human speech sounds.
Phonetic symbols are written between phonetic brackets "[" and "]", so that a word such as "cat" is transcribed [k a t] and a phrase such as "Don't lose me now" might be transcribed as [d o n t l u z m i n au].

Phonetics is a branch of Linguistics that examines the inventory and structure of the sounds of speech.
The second, acoustic phonetics, measures and analyzes the physical properties of the sound waves humans produce when we speak.
While the focus of this unit will be the articulatory properties of speech sounds, we will implicitly make reference to acoustic and perceptual properties of speech sounds throughout the course.

 Motivation for Articulatory Phonetics Introduction to Linguistics
Phonetics provides you with the capability to understand and record differences and similarities between the sounds of languages.
In phonetic script, the symbolic alphabet for accurately representing sounds rather than letters, the sound is symbolized as [x] (where the brackets indicate that we are using phonetic script, not the regular alphabet).
We know the least about this area of phonetics, but one example is the perception of hissing sounds or sibilants, such as the sounds often represented by the letters s, z, sh, or ch.

Most articulatory phonetics courses focus on learning an alphabetic transcription system, the International Phonetic Alphabet or IPA (http://www.arts.gla.ac.uk/ipa/ipa.html) being the most commonly used.
Training in articulatory phonetics should allow students to recognise and transcribe all sounds which are used linguistically.
Students should be encouraged to create new symbols and descriptions as the need arises: a phonetic alphabet thus serves as a platform for transcription but does not limit the ultimate type and number of symbols used.
