Message 3: New phonetics Web site

Subject: New phonetics Web site


 Some of you may remember that some time back I posted three lists of
phonetics-related URLs to LINGUIST. Here are the links to the archived
copies, if you missed the original posts:
(1) http://linguistlist.org/issues/11/11-1812.html#1
(2) http://linguistlist.org/issues/11/11-1869.html#1 and
(3) http://linguistlist.org/issues/11/11-1964.html#2 .

 I have begun incorporating these resources, together with additional
links and some original material, into a Web site. The URL is:

 http://ccms.ntu.edu.tw/~karchung

 Enter the phonetics areas by clicking on "Introduction to Phonetics" and
"Phonetics II".

 My main target audience is Chinese (especially Taiwanese) university
students, and there are bits of Chinese text (in Big5) here and there in the
site, but non-Chinese may find things of interest as well (like a
downloadable virtual theremin as an aid to better understanding frequency
and amplitude, on p. 18). Many more pages are planned, including
student-authored tutorials on English pronunciation, and a list of
linguistics links and resources in Taiwan.

 I would be *very* grateful for any feedback, including first
impressions, corrections, and suggestions. I am also very interested in
collecting more URLs to phonetics sites (like maybe your own Web page?) that
are not in the original three lists.

 Many thanks!
