The International phonetic transcription. It was introduced by the International Phonetic Association in But the science of phonetics has been considerably developed since then. And drawbacks of that system are quite evident; it suggests the same symbols for different phonemes: [i: - i], [ ; -o], [ u: - u ], [d'-ifcl, which gives the wrong impression that those phonemes differ only in duration length.
The phonemic transcription broad.
Phonetic difficulty and stuttering in English
In phonemic transcription every phoneme is given an individual symbol, the number of which is 44 according to the number of phonemes in British English. Words and sentences transcribed with the help of this phonetic script are placed between the slanting brackets, e. This type of transcription is used in studying English as a speciality. The allophonic transcription narrow.
In this type of transcription every allophone has either a special symbol or a diacritical mark.
It is used in doing research work in the field o f phonetics. The English Vowel System The vowel is a speech sound in the production of which the air stream coming out of the lungs meets no obstruction on its way.

The allophones of a phoneme form a set of sounds that: 1 Do not change the meaning of a word, 2 are all very similar to one another but discrete in the allophonic narrow transcription [ ], 3 Occur in phonetic contexts different from one anotherfor example, syllable initial as opposed to syllable final.
The differences between allophones can be stated in terms of phonological rules. Approximant: An articulation in which one articulator is close to another but without the tract being narrowed to an extent that the airstream is produced.
Aspiration: n. It is usually symbolized by a small raised [ h ] following the main symbol.

Method Participants Forty two participants were diagnosed as showing signs of stuttering by a speech pathologist in a clinic in the United Kingdom. Cambridge University Press.
An example of phonetics is the International Phonetic Alphabet IPA , which standardizes the pronunciation of words from any language so that anyone reading any word in any language can pronounce it properly.
