Answer
  • alm orientation
  • and shape
  • ovement
  • ocation

Question 18

Question
2/4 Phonology Remember the difference between phonetics and phonology. Phonetic deals with the production of sounds and phonology deals with how language organizes sounds and their rules to such organization. Complementary distribution vs Contrastive distribution Complementary distribution occurs when two sounds occur in two [blank_start]different[blank_end] environments and are not present in each others environment. Also, they will not be [blank_start]NO[blank_end] minimal pairs if the sounds are complementary. If this is the case, then you have two [blank_start]allophones[blank_end] of the same phoneme. One being the underlying phoneme, which for the most part is the allophone which is less restrictive. Contrastive distribution is when two sounds can occur in the [blank_start]same[blank_end] environment thus having minimal pairs. If this is the case, then you have two complete different [blank_start]phonemes[blank_end].
Answer
  • different
  • NO
  • allophones
  • same
  • phonemes

Question 19

Question
Phonetic analysis problems. For practice, look at the homework "Phonology: phonological rules" from our assignments. You are given a data set that includes transcribed words from a specific language. Your task for example may be to decide whether such allophones [x] and [x] are of the same phoneme or if each allophone are of a separate phonemes. Follow the steps Step 1: look for minimal pairs Step 2: if minimal pairs are found, then you conclude that the sounds are of contrastive distribution and that you have two separate [blank_start]phonemes[blank_end] or Step 1: look for minimal pairs Step 2: if you do NOT have minimal pairs, then you conclude that you have sounds of complementary distributions and they are [blank_start]allophones[blank_end] of the same phoneme.
Answer
  • phonemes
  • allophones

Question 20

Question
Minimal pairs are two swords (or more) that have identical IPA transcriptions except for [blank_start]one[blank_end] phoneme that occurs in the same position in each word.
