Part One: Phonemes and the International Phonetic Alphabet

 

For the first portion of the assignment you will need to translate the first 20 words of your paragraph into the symbols of the International Phonetic Alphabet.  You may need to do a bit of research to find the symbols you need to express this. This link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Phonetic_Alphabet_chart_for_English_dialects) will take you to the Wikipedea page for the IPA symbols used by the various English dialects.  To assist you in entering this for submission you can use the following website to type your answers: http://ipa.typeit.org/full/.  Then simply paste your results into a .doc, .docx, or .rtf file. Make sure that you submit your assignment in one of the three accepted formats. I will not accept any other format! You should also include the text you are translating so we can compare the two easily when we grade your assignment.

 

Example for part one: The two sentences below have been translated into IPA so that you can see how your own efforts should look.

 

The text to be translated:      My name is Christian Petersen. I am a college instructor.

After translation:                  maɪneɪmɪz kɹɪstt͡ʃʌnpʰitʰɹsʌɴ. aɪæmeɪkʰɑlɪd͡ʒɪɴstɹʌktoɹ.


 

Part Two: Morphemes, Bound & Free

For the second part of the assignment, you will need to identify the morphemes for the first 40 words of the first complete paragraph on the page you were assigned. Keep in mind that free morphemes must be related to the original word.  For example the word “firetruck” consists of two free morphemes “fire” and “truck,” but “some” is a single morpheme despite the fact that “so” and “me” could be considered individual free morphemes.  This is because the meaning of “some” is not based on the morphemes “so” and “me.”You should also include the text you are translating so we can compare the two easily when we grade your assignment.

 

Example for Part Two: Here is an example to help you format your assignment.

The capture would be performed robotically, and the relocated asteroid would become a destination for astronauts to explore—and, possibly, for space entrepreneurs to mine.
