    Second term exam in Phonetics


    I. Transcribe the following words.What is the rule governing their stress placement?(7pts)


    Word

    Transcription

    The Rule governing stress placement

    Pekinese



    /pi:ki'ni:z./

    Primary stress is put on the suffix "ese"because it affects stress placement.

    Disconnect:



    /diskə'nekt/

    Primary stress is put on the third syllable because dis is a prefix that does not affect stress placement /kə'nekt/Stress is put on the second syllable because it ends with more than one consonant


    Almond-cake



    /'a:mənd keik/

    Stress is put on the first element because it is a compound word made by two independant English nouns


    Examine

    /ig'zæmin/

    Stress is put on the second syllable


    Escort(v)

    Escort(n)



    /is'kɔ:t./

    /'eskɔ:t/

    Stress is put on the second syllable because it is a verb (Word Class Pairs)

    Stress is put on the First syllable because it is a noun

    Guarantee



    /gærən'ti:./

    Primary Stress is put on the suffix "ee"because it affects stress placement.
    II.Rewrite this transcription in ordinary script (spelling form); underline the weak forms in the text. (6pts)

    I really think we ought to do something about all this.
    Yes, it really is getting completely out of
    hand. Ever since those terrible rock concerts started we’ve been gettingnothing but long-haired hippies and freaks coming from all over the place withtheir vans and dogs and bottles of beer.


    Yes,it’s time we did something about it as a community, you know, if you wait for the police to do something you’ll be waiting a long time.


    III.Explain the aspect of connected speech in the following sentences ( 7pt)


    1. /sen ˈfræŋk ə ˈkɑ:d/ Send Frank a card (/d/is elided )"Elision
    2. /frυkkeik/ Fruit Cake /t/assimilates to /k/"Assimilation
    3. /læm mɑ:k/ Land Mark Elision +Assimilation
    4. /dɪdʒuˈʊ/ Did You Go? Coalescent Assimilation
    5. /teks bʊk/ Text Book Elision of /t/
    6. /hæm bæg/ Hand Bag Assimilation + Elision
    7. /wem ˈbraɪən kɔ:ld/ When Brian Called?Assimilation/n/Assimilates to /m/
