Phonetics is the study of the sounds of natural language. This chapter breaks down the makings of a word, including the organs we use to create them. The distinction between letters, sounds and phonemes is discussed at length, as well as the effect that context can have on the pronunciation of sounds. The chapter finishes by outlining the basis of articulation.
