Language Demos for Articulatory Phonetics
Brief instructions for use:
In each demo, highlighted buttons play the corresponding sound.
Many demos are arranged in tabular form. When the column or row heading is in a highlighted button then the complete column/row can be played with one click.
For many speech items a sonagram has been prepared (as JPG or PDF).
These are indicated by a capital "S" link. Clicking on this link opens the sonagram in a separate tab.
