  • Page ID
  • In this chapter, you’ve learned that speaking and listening are the primary linguistic skills, and you’ve started to learn to think about words in terms of their sounds and not their letters. You know the names of the parts of the body that humans use to produce speech, and you know how to classify consonants and vowels according to how they’re produced. In the next Chapter, you’ll get more practice at using the International Phonetic Alphabet to transcribe the sounds of Canadian English.
