Parent topics

  • Linguistics [r]: The scientific study of language. [e]
  • Phonology [r]: In linguistics, the study of the system used to represent language, including sounds in spoken language and hand movements in sign language. [e]

Subtopics

  • Consonant [r]: Unit of language, defined in phonetics as a speech sound that involves full or partial 'closure' of the mouth, and in phonology as a segment that cannot occupy the nucleus or 'peak' of a syllable. [e]
  • Vowel [r]: Speech sound with relatively unhindered airflow; different vowels are articulated mainly through tongue movements at the palatal and velar regions of the mouth, and are usually voiced (i.e. involve vocal fold movement). [e]
  • Back-chaining [r]: Pronunciation-teaching technique for polysyllabic words, in which syllables are learned in reverse order. [e]
  • Rhyme [r]: A particular form of assonance in poetry, in which the syllable(s) at the end of one line have the same or similar sound as the syllable(s) at the end of another. [e]

Other related topics

  • Phonetics [r]: Study of speech sounds and their perception, production, combination, and description. [e]
  • Phoneme [r]: Theoretical unit of language that can distinguish words or syllables, such as /b/ versus /m/; often considered the smallest unit of language, but is a transcription convention rather than a true unit in most models of phonology since the 1960s. [e]
  • Sign language [r]: A system of language in which expressions are conveyed using body movements rather than the human voice. [e]
  • Spoken language [r]: An example of language produced using some of the articulatory organs, e.g. the mouth, vocal folds or lungs, or intended for production by these organs; alternatively, the entire act of communicating verbally - what people mean or intend, the words they use, their accent, intonation and so on. [e]
  • Written language [r]: The communication and representation of a language by means of a writing system. [e]
  • Writing system [r]: A set of signs used to represent a language, such as an alphabet, or a set of rules used to write a language, such as conventions of spelling and punctuation. [e]
  • Chinese characters [r]: (simplified Chinese 汉字; traditional Chinese: 漢字) are symbols used to write varieties of Chinese and - in modified form - other languages; world's oldest writing system in continuous use. [e]
  • The Sound Pattern of English [r]: A landmark work on the rules of English phonology by Noam Chomsky and Morris Halle, which importantly rejected the phoneme as a true phonological unit; subsequently built upon by other analyses that recognised the syllable and other units of prosodic organisation. [e]
  • Wordplay [r]: Literary technique in which the words that are used become the main subject of the work. [e]
