Ibaraki JALT:

Teaching Phonetics for Multiple Purposes - One Approach

Date: Sunday, February 17th, 2008 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Joe Tomei, Kumamoto Gakuen University

The large number of phonetic texts available suggests that there is no real consensus about what a phonetics class should teach. In this presentation, Tomei will present the outline of his own phonetics course that addresses multiple needs in the university curriculum, needs which are often unaddressed, and include encouraging a familiarity with IPA and English dialects, coping with aspects of what a university course might be like in the West, and encouraging further interest and research. He hopes to show how a course that focusses on these multiple aspects can function in a university curriculum and some of the potential pitfalls it may face.
