A Dictionary of Phonetics
Articulatory, Acoustic, Auditory
English - Arabic

SOLOMON I. SARA, S.J.
Georgetown University

The aim of this dictionary is to provide the Arabic students and
scholars a comprehensive set of English technical vocabulary that is
currently used in phonetics with the corresponding set in Arabic.
Phonetics is a vast field of study with branches reaching out into
many speech and language sciences. Thus, a dictionary of phonetics
can not be limited only to the field of linguistics. It must include
articulatory phonetics and technical terms from the anatomy,
physiology, and neurology of speech; acoustic phonetics and the
technical terms from speech encoding and transmission processes; and
auditory phonetics and technical terms from speech reception,
decoding, and perception. In addition, a dictionary of phonetics must
include all other relevant terms occurring in the neighboring
sub-fields of linguistics that touch upon phonetics, in particular
instrumental phonetics and phonology. The proposed dictionary is such
a dictionary of phonetics. Even though this dictionary accounts for
all of the phonetic terminology in use in the study and teaching of
phonetics, it is arranged alphabetically rather than by the many
sub-disciplines of phonetics. This alphabetical arrangement makes the
dictionary accessible not only to the beginner but to the specialist
as well. Furthermore, the cross classificatory arrangement of its
entries makes it more user friendly.

Message 2: African Linguistics: Aspects of Dagbani Grammar, Knut J. Olawsky

Subject: African Linguistics: Aspects of Dagbani Grammar, Knut J. Olawsky

Aspects of Dagbani Grammar 
With special emphasis on phonology and morphology

KNUT J. OLAWSKY

This study constitutes a synchronic description of Dagbani, as spoken
in the Northern Region of Ghana. The work gives an overview of a
little-known Gur language in which various aspects of lexicon, syntax,
morphology, and phonology are characterised. Special emphasis is put
on the description of phonology and morphology. One section discusses
the number inflection of nominals, supported by psycholinguistic
evidence drawn from experiments with Dagbani speakers. This presumably
reflects one of the first trials to explore the morphological
structure of an African language by means of experiments. The largest
part of the work is dedicated to the phonology of Dagbani. The
sections on tone re of particular interest, as they represent one of
the few attempts to characterise the tonology of a Gur
language. Dagbani displays a number of interesting phenomena of tonal
interaction of various kinds which are ilustrated by numerous
examples. The data are the result of various fieldtrips by the
author. Where possible, frequency distributions and other statistical
information are given in order to illustrate how representative a
phenomenon is. The systematic description of Dagbani grammar is a
task which has not been undertaken so far. Though far from being
complete, this description of Dagbani is the most comprehensive
linguistic work on the language.
