LEA X2NLA – Programme amménagé 2009
TRANSCRIPTION EXERCISES FOR PRACTICE

General remarks:
- Religiously apply the transcription conventions outlined in the first semester.
- Begin & end phonemic transcriptions with oblique brackets (/.../).
- Do not use any punctuation signs.
- Only use the symbols given in the brochure (page 4).
- Don’t be influenced by spelling (e.g. six => /'sɪks/).
- Pay attention to precision of symbols (e.g. /z/, /ð/, /j/) & beware handwriting habits
(e.g. /z/ ≠ /ʒ /).
- Remember that certain symbols only occur in specific contexts (e.g. in Standard
British English, ‘r’ is only pronounced when followed by a phonemic vowel, including
linking-‘r’ as in /ðǝ 'fɪǝr ǝv ɪt/; the vowel /ǝ/ never occurs in stressed syllables, etc.).
How to proceed:
- Read the text carefully.
- Indicate all stressed syllables on the written version of the text, using small vertical
marks before the syllables carrying primary stress.
- Apply basic stress rule: lexical (content) words are always stressed; grammatical
(function) words are usually unstressed and reduced, but take note of exceptions
(stressed function words, full forms, role of context...).
- Do not write a draft version (only use it for particularly difficult words); gradually
add all the stresses of your graphic version into your transcription.
- Always reread your transcription carefully. Does the transcription correspond to the
intended pronunciation?
Provide a phonemic transcription of the following sentences. Do not forget to indicate
stressed syllables and use vowel reductions and weak forms where appropriate. Read the
sentences out loud for practice.
