Unformatted text preview: 1 Introduction to Linguistics Homework 3 (100 points) Due Friday, July 2 nd at the beginning of class 1. (25 pts.) For each of the following broadly transcribed words, please give the word’s English spelling and a narrow transcription of how you say the word. Where appropriate, use the diacritics and extra IPA symbols that we’ve discussed in class, which are given for you at the end of the homework prompt. • / əˌlɛktɹəˈkjuʃən / • / fəˈlænθɹəpi / • / ˈætəˌtud / • / ɹiˈkælkjuˌle͡ɪt / • / ˈpɹɪnsəpəl / • / ˈsɝkəmˌvɛnt / • / ˈbɑtjulɪzəm / • / ˌsænəˈte͡ɪʃən / • / ˌzo͡ʊəˈlɑd͡ʒɪkəl / • / ˈɑltɚ / 2.
