This is the first in a series of posts about the phonology module which is a core module for MA Applied Linguistics and MA ELT students at The University of Reading. Below is a working list of some tools and other posts which have helped me so far with the Phonology Module.
As recommended before in the post Trinity Diploma: The Phonology Interview, quizlet has set of cards on British English Phonemes: Place and manner of articulation you can learn each of these, review them on the ‘flashcards’ and play various games to help you memorise them. Quizlet is also available as an app on Iphone/Ipad. I also found it useful to make my own set of paper flashcards:
The previously mentioned Geoffrey Jordan has a post entitled Pronunciation Paper which includes advice on how to approach a pronunciation essay and even includes an example model paper.
I’ll update this post as and when I come across any more useful links and tools. If anyone knows of any other useful links or has any tips regarding studying phonology at MA level then feel free to post these below, thanks.
