Phonetics and Phonology – definition and distinction Phonetics Phonetics is a scientific description of what speech sounds exist in a language. It represents how they are produced and perceived and what acoustic properties they have. Thus, it can be put in the class of natural sciences.

This book is an introduction to practical phonetics, the description and classification of the sounds of speech. Catford's unique interactive approach leads readers to explore the entire range of human sounds through a series of introspective experiments carried out in their own vocal tracts, proceeding systematically from familiar vocal postures and articulations to new and unknown ones.5/5(1).
