Phonetic has three different aspect:
- 1. Articulatory phonetics
- 2. Acoustic phonetics
- Auditory phonetics
th (as in then)
j (as in Jane)
th (as in thing)
When two words are identical in form except for a contrast in one phoneme, occurring in the same position, the two words are described as a minimal pairs.
In contrast to phonetics, phonology is the study of how sounds and gestures pattern in and across languages, relating such concern with other levels and aspects of language. Phonetics deals with the articulatory and acoustic properties of speech sounds, how they are produced, and how they are perceived.
