The way sounds are articulated is one major component of the study of phonetics and phonology. Understanding how sounds are produced helps teachers and speech therapists, among others, to correct problems in pronunciation. Review Figures 2.10.1 and 2.11.1 in the Clark, Yallop, and Fletcher text, and explore the interactive diagram illustrating the places of articulation on the Place of Articulation web page. Pick two regions of articulation, then demonstrate why the study of articulation is important by utilizing the articulatory concepts we have discussed thus far. For example, you might pick the alveolar region and describe how some individuals who speak with a lisp are often substituting the interdental [Θ] for the alveolar [t]; this knowledge can then be applied in the professional area of speech therapy. Why it is important to understand how sounds are produced? How can this knowledge be applied professionally as a language teacher, speech therapist, or working as a linguist in the field?
