Linguistics,
Pronunciation and
Phonics!!!!!!!!
(and the villagers rejoice)
Linguistics, Pronunciation and Phonics
is brought to you by T-Time English.
Goals!
•A brief intro to linguistics.
•Use linguistics to look at why certain
problems occur and/or reoccur.
•Give examples of solutions to use in
the classroom.
Intro to Linguistics (言語)
• Scientific study of language.
• It is a sub-discipline(学問分野の下位区分)
of anthropology(人類学).
Parts of Linguistics
•
•
•
•
•
Phonetics (音声学)
Phonology (音韻論)
Morphology (形態論)
Syntax (統語論)
Semantics (意味論)
• Many other insignificant yet wildly fascinating
subsections exist, however, we have neither the time nor
the desire to waste any of our precious 70 minutes on
them.
Phonetics and Phonology
(No, not fun-ology)
• Phonetics: Study of how speech sounds are
made.
• Phonology: The organization of language
sounds.
Morphology and Syntax
• Morphology: Study of the structure of words.
• Syntax: Study of how words combine to make
grammatical phrases and sentences.
ex. Why what we wrote above makes any sense to
anyone…
Semantics
• Semantics: This is the study of the meaning of
words.
(Don’t worry. There is no meaning behind putting
this topic on a slide of its own.)
Bad joke time: Which came first- semantics or its
meaning?
Phonics フォニックスFuonikkusu
A-E-I-O-U vs. あ・い・う・え・お
t-o vs. と
E-n-g-l-i-s-h vs. に・ほ・ん・ご
Possible solutions
Pronunciation with Talia
Phonics with Ted
Pronunciation
• Mirror exercise.
• Silent word game.
• Mouth diagrams. (That’s right. She’s going to draw in your mouth. So stick
out your tongue.)
• Gestures.
• Letter trees. (If you plant Alphabits, they will grow into a tree of that letter.)
Phonics

Ff, Ll, Mm, Nn, Ss, Xx

• “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I
remember. Involve me and I learn.”
-Benjamin Franklin
Morphology and Syntax
Am you likes a dogs?

•
I am like baseball.
I have a brothers.
Do she likes apples?
Because it’s fun.
I want be a teacher.
Next I say him singer favorite.
“What’s a verb?”… 動詞だよ。…動詞って何?
Baseball makes me hard.
Tackling the problems (not the students)
• Involve the students in their
learning.
• Correct the problems at the
start.
• English and Japanese are not compatible
languages.
• Become your own student.
• Get creative- whether it’s phonics or grammar.
Sentence Diagramming
We’re not gods so…
• Now it’s your turn.
• See if you can use some of our examples and
ideas to satisfy the grammar nazi and child
within you all at once.
• We’re sorry you don’t have a lot of time but
the one true god, Zane, only gave us 70
minutes. (We’re sorry Allah, God, Shiva, YHVH,
and Jebus. Don’t strike us down.)
Your mission
