French F315 introduces students to core concepts of phonetics and phonology, with a focus on French. The course has three main objectives:
(1) To discover the nature of sounds and sound systems, including how they are structured and how they differ between dialects of French;
(2) To improve students’ pronunciation accuracy and oral fluency through a combination of practice, perceptual and articulatory training, and acoustic analysis;
(3) To develop students’ communicative skills using both listening comprehension practice and conversational practice.
Students choose one of two drill sections and attend drill plus lecture. The course meets four times weekly: two lectures with the professor, and two drill/practice sessions with an Associate Instructor. All components of the course are taught in French.
