呢個course主要係教IPA Chart入面嘅符號嘅發音方式,而D lecture大致上可以分為4個部分:speech production, consonants, vowels同埋stress/intonation & tone.
初初上嘅時候有D淆底,因為D linguistics terms好technical, 好似上緊Bio咁,不過上多幾堂就會適應左。我每次上堂都會打醒十二分精神,因為有時候聽漏左少少野你就會好難catch up返,最好唔好走堂。
我覺得上呢個course最得意嘅地方係知道我地平時講野嗰D音係點樣發出來,會知道口腔入面嘅運動,例如你條脷、牙齒同喉嚨之間嘅互動。

講下workload先:
1. Tutorial - 20%
Tutorial會喺2粒鐘嘅lecture接住落。Dr. Lee每堂都會派兩張Worksheet俾你,有一張佢會同你一齊做,另外一張就係自己做然後要交出去當計attendance。如果上堂有俾心機聽書嘅話張worksheet唔難做,想攞高分嘅話就要睇清楚題目小心D做。D worksheet通常都係叫你睇圖match返D consonants, 填IPA symbols, 畫線同填充。

2. Take-home assignments x 4 - 40%
頭3份take-home assignment可以算係平時tutorial exercise嘅加長版,format大致上差唔多。而最後一份assignment係一篇individual essay, 3揀1, 都係圍繞住分析/比較唔同語言嘅發音系統,寫2-3頁A4紙就ok!

3. Final exam - 40%
個format同tutorial同take-home assignment大同小異,只要溫熟D worksheet同practice多D就冇問題。考2粒鐘,考試嗰陣佢都會另外俾張IPA chart你睇住來做。雖然考2粒鐘,不過個人認為你都要溫到好熟先得,因為題目嘅量都頗為多,如果唔係做起上來會好易出錯同埋勁驚唔夠時間做。

溫馨小提示:
1. 呢科最好嘅地方就係冇group work, 唔怕freerider, 付出同收穫完全成正比,不過都建議同friend一齊讀有個照應,可以互相對下答案同幫手解答下唔明嘅地方,讀起上來個心都定D。

2. 雖然呢科個grade望落唔錯,workload唔算重,但絕對唔係傳說中嘅輕鬆A range嘅科。如果想有好成績嘅話D assignment唔可以hea做,一定要俾心機細心D睇清楚題目做好佢。

3. 對Linguistics / Phonetics有興趣嘅同學仔可以一戰!Dr. Lee係一位準備非常充足同十分有heart嘅professor, 如果有問題唔明佢都會好細心解答。不過要有少少心理準備嘅就係對於冇linguistics底嘅同學來講有D lecture講得太仔細,其實淨係教最basic嘅音都已經好好了 :D

Prof Lee is very nice and friendly. She answers students' questions patiently. Overall speaking, the course mainly focus on phonetics and using IPA chart to analyze the sounds of different languages. The course is very technical and not very difficult.

For the tutorial, it will be conducted after the 2 hrs lecture time and a worksheet will be delivered to you to test your knowledge about the lecture. Usually, there are 3 pages for the worksheet and prof will guide you to do the first 2 pages and the last page will be done by yourself. And you could ask prof questions if you have any difficulty in doing the last page. Except the first and the last lecture without any tutorial worksheets to be done.

For the 4 assignments, the format of the first three assignments is similar to the tutorial worksheets. So, you could refer to your lecture notes and tutorial worksheets when you do them. For the last assignment, it is a essay with 3 questions choosing one to write about. The questions are related to the phonetic system of the language or the use of IPA chart. You will have to write about 2-3 pages for it.

For the final exam, tips will be given in the last lecture and the exam format is basically just like the tutorial worksheets and the first 3 assignments.

呢個Course適合對於各種語言發音有興趣嘅人,或者希望透過IPA有效掌握語言發音嘅人。上堂會聽到唔同世界語言發音嘅錄音,感受語音嘅多樣性。同時,為咗方便標記世界語言嘅發音,亦都會學哂全套IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet),會接觸好多英文唔存在嘅符號。

Prof 每堂都會準備好筆記俾同學,亦都樂意解答同學問題。

Assignment同Tutorial Worksheets係關於IPA符號、填充、畫圖等等,全部答案都有有據可依,無咩主觀成份,肯認真對答案就唔難全對。全部都係Individual work。

Exam無Essay同Listening。今次有提供IPA表俾我哋邊睇邊做,不過一定要溫書同練多啲先做得快而準。

上Lecture會幾搞笑,啲同學會喺教授講緊某個IPA符號時練習發音,好似牙牙學語咁氣氛幾輕鬆。

要留意嘅係,呢個係簡單版LT3212 - Phonetics,讀咗呢個就唔可以再讀呢個同埋LT3214 - Phonology,想take語言學minor要小心。

基本上個course係introduction to phonetics,適合對語言同發音有興趣既人讀。成個課程主要係圍繞international phonetic alphabet (IPA) 黎教。有趣既係你會知道更多世界唔同語言發音既方式。呢科好就好在無group work,唔洗驚free rider。個人付出同收獲絕對成正比。

Dr Lee好nice,睇得出佢好用心預備課程內容,每一堂都會印好晒notes俾同學,亦好樂意解答同學問題。不過無可否認有時lecture真係幾悶。

4 Assignments 40%
Tutorials 20%

課程唔算好難,只要你肯俾心機鑽研tutorial ex同assignment,exam無難度。
