The English and Spanish Phonetics libraries are web resources that have the following features for each of the consonants and vowels of Spanish and American English.
This library is intended to be used by adult students and instructors of articulatory phonetics, linguistics or foreign language.

 Ancient Scripts: Phonetics
The most famous one is the International Phonetic Alphabet or IPA, but the American Phonetic Alphabet is also quite widespread.
If you are familiar with the IPA there shouldn't really be any problems once you understand corresponding equivalent symbols in the two systems.
Notice how the 'a' (phonetically [æ]) sounds longer in "sad" than in "sat".

Henry Rogers and Michael Stairs at University of Toronto have developed phthong which teaches, tests, and corrects the phonetic alphabet; actually, it has two forms, one which teaches the "American" modifications to the IPA and the other which teaches IPA by the book.

In articulatory phonetics, speech sounds are classified by the relative positions of the vocal organs and by their effects on the air flow.
To me, it seems as if auditory phonetics requires a lot more research before one may properly call it a science, but at present phoneticians lack accessible ways of measuring auditory qualities of sounds, and it may be impossible at all to advance the knowledge in auditory phonetics without breaking moral boundaries.
Acoustic phonetics was dependent on articulatory phonetics in its early days because the physical data collected by scientific measurements seemed so unrelated to the known speech sounds at first that known articulatory observations were welcomed as a guiding hand.

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.

 Phonetics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Phonetics deals with the sounds themselves rather than the contexts in which they are used in languages.
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 (from the Greek (A native or inhabitant of Greece) word phone = sound/voice) is the study of speech ((language) communication by word of mouth) sound (The sudden occurrence of an audible event) s (voice (The sound made by the vibration of vocal folds modified by the resonance of the vocal tract)).
Phone ((phonetics) an individual sound unit of speech without concern as to whether or not it is a phoneme of some language) s, the objects of study in phonetics, are actual speech sounds as uttered by human beings.
For instance, in Chinese character (additional info and facts about Chinese character) s, a phonetic refers to the portion of the character that hints at its pronunciation, while the radical (A person who has radical ideas or opinions) refers to the portion that serves as a semantic (additional info and facts about semantic) hint.

 Phonology & Phonetics   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Phonetics and Phonology are the branches of linguistics that are concerned with sounds made in the production of human language, looking at this phenomenon from different perspectives.
Accordingly, the tree main branches of phonetics are: articulatory phonetics, auditory phonetics and acoustic phonetics.
Since the orthography of the languages is only imperfectly phonetic and since the number of speech sounds exceeds the number of characters in the Roman alphabet, International Phonetic Alphabet has been invented by the International Phonetic Association (IPA) as a separate system to represent the actual sounds of the human language.

 Learn to teach Phonetics. Teacher Training Programme.
Phonetics is the branch of linguistics devoted to the study of speech sounds.
Phonetics attempts to classify and describe sounds of speech used in all natural languages.
The study may include how speaker produces speech sounds (physiological or articulatory phonetics), how speech sounds are transmitted from the speaker to the listener (acoustic phonetics), how a listener perceives speech sounds (perceptual or auditory phonetics) and how speech sounds function in languages to convey meaning (linguistic phonetics or phonology).

 Phonetics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is concerned with the actual properties of speech sounds (phones) as well as those of non-speech sounds, and their production, audition and perception, as opposed to phonology, which operates at the level of sound systems and abstract sound units (such as phonemes and distinctive features).
There are over a hundred different phones recognized as distinctive by the International Phonetic Association (IPA) and transcribed in their International Phonetic Alphabet.
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.

Another less common use of phonetics in speaker identification is to give evidence as to the extent to which a witness's identification of a person from their voice alone should be considered reliable.
transcription: phonetic expertise is used either to create a transcript of a recording that is difficult to understand (for example if it has a great deal of background noise), or to give evidence as to the reliability of a transcript prepared by someone else.

Without phonetic training the dialectologist, and the missionary who is confronted with a hitherto unwritten language, can neither observe fully nor record accurately the phenomena with which they have to deal.
The only sound basis of a theoretical knowledge of phonetics is the practical mastery of a limited number of soundsthat is to say, of the sounds which are already familiar to the learner in his own language.
Another advantage of phonetic spelling is that when the learner sees the words written in a representation of their actual spoken form he is able to recognize them at once when he hears them.

 Phonetics   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The main objectives of this course are to introduce students to the study of articulatory phonetics, and the technical terms required for describing speech.
Students should not only master the basic notions of phonetic transcription and the symbols for transcribing English, but should also be familiar with general phonetics and be able to describe the phonetic structures of other languages.
This is largely a practical course and students are thus introduced to the phonetic classification of the sounds of speech by means of a series of simple introspective experiments carried out inside their own vocal tracts, their throats and mouths.
