Phonology: Case Studies
Web

Description

The phonology of a language consists of the patterns of distribution of its speech categories. Phonological analysis is the process of determining what those patterns are, how they can be represented, and why they are the way they are. This site provides a series of case studies for students learning how to do phonological analysis. The case studies go step-by-step through phonological analyses in three languages - Kinyarwanda, Turkish, and Catalan - with soundfiles and references.

In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination

You may also contact each LRC individually by locating their directory information in the Meet the LRCs menu.
