If you always wanted to be able to read sentences like the one above, this might be the perfect seminar for you!
In this course we will take a closer look at the sound system of English. We will revisit concepts you already met in the introduction (e.g., phones, phonemes, allophones) and work on our transcription skills as an empirical basis for further phonological analyses. We will take a closer look at phonological variation and phenomena of connected speech.

Students who need to complete 2 CP for the V2 Module (1./2. Komponente)/ANG-V-SW (1.Komponente) may register for the „History of English [2CP lecture]“ (Dr. Pentrel) or for the „Grammar of English" lecture (Prof. Bergs). Only under specific circumstances, such as a particular interest in the topic, a provable scheduling conflict or if you already took any of these lectures before, you may approach me about completing this class for 2 CP.
