4/8/2010 1 For next time! • Since we didn’t finish the vowels, you can do the following for Thursday of week 4: – Worksheet #4 from course website and exercises 1 and 2 in Fagan on p. 46. – Please read pp. 14-20 in Fagan. • Your first Sick summary is due, nicht wahr? (Perhaps best for Tuesday of 4 th week and worksheets 1-3 of consonants, if you haven’t already handed them in.)

4/8/2010 5 The criteria (X 5 here! --as opposed to 3 with consonants) • Tongue position—2 diminsions (1) high versus low front versus back , . • (3) Lip rounding . (Is there any?) • (4) Muscular tension, i.e. tense versus lax . • (5) Length: short versus long – The colon shows a long vowel, e.g. [a:].

4/8/2010 6 More criteria? • Yes, there are more relevant criteria, like nasalization . But for our purposes, what I’ve given you will suffice.

4/8/2010 7 Don’t let me forget the diphthongs! • *We’ll pretend that there are really only three and we won’t need to describe them like the other vowels, though you will need to know them. – [ai], as in mei n, etc. – [ i], as in neu , etc. – [au], as in Hau s, etc. • diphthongs in Pfui , Toi lette are peripheral sounds * every vocalic r following a vowel forms a diphthong! e.g. hier, Uhr, Ohr, etc.! :p-. We’ll practice this but ignore it in our phonetics.
