  1. Articulation
    modification of the vocal tract by partially or completely interrupting the voiced or unvoiced air stream to produce distinctly different speech sounds
  2. Phonology
    system of language concerned with the rules for the structure, distribution, and sequencing of speech sound patterns
  3. Phoneme
    class of phonetically similar sounds considered equivalent in a particular language
  4. Allophone
    an acceptable variation in the production of a phoneme
  5. Minimal Pairs
    • Two words that differ in one phoneme production 
    • ex)bat vs. bag
  6. Cluster/Blends
    A combination of 2 or more consonants that release or arrest a syllable
  7. Phonotatics
    works to explain what sounds can and cannot be combined with each other in our language
  8. Speech as a Secondary Function
    in times of danger, biological processes take precedence over speech
  9. 5 Speech Processes
    • Articulation 
    • Respiration 
    • Phonation 
    • Resonance 
    • Cerebration
  10. Articulation Speech and Biological Functions
    • Biological: mastication and deglutition 
    • Speech: produce the phonemes of the language
    • Needed for all speech sounds
  11. Respiration Speech and Biological Functions
    • Process of breathing; inhale=replenish oxygen; exhale=remove carbon dioxide 
    • Speech: provide and direct air through larynx and oral and nasal cavities; provide energy source for speech 
    • Biological: sustain life by bringing in oxygen and removing carbon dioxide
    • Needed for all speech sounds
  12. Phonation Speech and Biological Functions
    • The process by which laryngeal sound is produced due to vibration of vocal folds activated by outgoing airstream 
    • Speech: provide an acoustic sour of all oral communication except unvoiced consonants 
    • Biological: provide mechanical barrier between trachea and pharynx to prevent entrance of foreign matter; provide protective cough reflex to expel intruding matter; allow for buildup of sub glottal pressure for strenuous events
    • Only needed for voiced sounds
  13. Resonance Speech and Biological Functions
    • process of modifying the voiced airstream by amplifying and damping certain frequency components as it passes through various structures 
    • Speech: prevent or allow the voiced airstream to pass through the nasal passages 
    • Biological: mastication and deglutition
    • Only needed for some speech sounds
  14. Cerebration Speech and Biological Functions
    • Biological: controls the Peripheral and Central Nervous Systems; Coordinates all muscle movements in proper sequence and time with the desired result
    • Speech: Tells articulators when, where, and how to move
    • Needed for all speech sounds
  15. Cerebrum
    • Receives and transforms sensory-motor experiences into symbols for oral communication 
    • Divided into left and right hemispheres that are connected by the corpus callosum 
    • Wrapped by 3 meningeal linings for protection 
    • Contains 4 Lobes: frontal, temporal, occipital, parietal
  16. Frontal Lobe
    • Contains Broca's Area (Anterior Communication Center)
    • Speech production movements are planned here
    • Formulates expressive language
  17. Temporal Lobe
    • Resposible for auditory perception 
    • Wernicke's area (posterior communication center)
    • Receives, assimilates, and interprets phonemes, words, and other oral communication symbols
  18. Parietal Lobe
    • Receptive area for general sensory stimuli that are not covered by other lobes
    • Responsible for sensory control of various parts of the body
    • Not really responsible for oral communication
  19. Occipital Lobe
    Responsible for visual stimulation and visual processing
  20. Phonological Processes
    • systematic change of sounds to make complex articulations more simple
    • they are innate 
    • Over time they will be suppressed; usually by age 4
  21. Coarticulation
    • Influence that sounds have on each other in connected speech 
    • Retentive: retaining an aspect of articulation when a sound does not need it 
    • Anticipatory: adjusting before the sound is produced
  22. Parts of a Syllable
    • Peak: most prominent part of syllable; will be a vowel; every syllable must have one 
    • Onset (Releasor): anything that precedes the peak
    • Coda (Arrestor): any element that follows the peak
  23. Open Syllables
    Syllable that lacks a coda
  24. Closed (Checked) Syllable
    Syllable that has a coda
  25. Assimilation
    Adaptive articulatory changes in which one sound becomes similar/identical to neighboring sound segment
  26. Rhyme
    • Occurs when the peak and coda of two words are the same 
    • ex) will; bill; etc.
  27. Juncture
    • The way that syllable interact and join in connected speech 
    • Closed Juncture: typical transition/blending when speaking at a moderate pace; consonant that ends one syllable is used to begin the next syllable 
    • Open Juncture: State each word deliberately and separately
  28. 8 Cognate Pairs
    • p/b
    • t/d
    • k/g
    • f/v
    • θ/ð
    • s/z
    • ∫/ʒ
    • t∫/dʒ
  29. Free Variation
    • Adding aspiration/plosive due to stress of a word
    • Speaker's choice 
    • Allophones
  30. Complementary Distribution
    • No changing
    • The sound that is created can only be placed in that situation and not substituted for an allophone 
    • ex) You cannot substitute the t in pat for the t in stop
