    The Difference between Phonetics and Phonology

    Phonetics and phonology are the two fields dedicated to the study of human speech sounds and sound structures. Thedifference between phonetics and phonology is that phonetics deals with the physical production of these sounds whilephonology is the study of sound patterns and their meanings both within and across languages. If they still sound like

    more or less the same thing, read on. Well discuss each one individually and then compare them side by side, whichshould clear things up.


    Phoneticsis strictly aboutaudiblesounds and the things that happen in your mouth, throat, nasal and sinus cavities, andlungs to make those sounds. It has nothing to do with meaning. Its only a description. For example, in order to producethe word bed, you start out with your lips together. Then, air from your lungs is forced over your vocal chords, whichbegin to vibrate and make noise. The air then escapes through your lips as they part suddenly, which results in a B sound.Next, keeping your lips open, the middle of your tongue comes up so that the sides meet your back teeth while the tip of

    your tongue stays down. All the while, air from your lungs is rushing out, and your vocal chords are vibrating. Theres yourE sound. Finally, the tip of your tongue comes up to the hard palate just behind your teeth. This stops the flow of air andresults in a D sound as long as those vocal chords are still going. As literate, adult speakers of the English language, wedont need a physical description of everything required to make those three sounds. We simply understand what to do inorder to make them. Similarly, phoneticists simply understand that when they see /kt/, its a description of how mostAmericans pronounce the word cat. It has nothing to do with a furry house pet. In fact, if there were a word in any otherlanguage pronounced the same way, the phonetic spelling would be the same regardless of meaning.Again, its not aboutmeaning. Its strictly physical.


    Phonology, on the other hand, is both physical and meaningful. It explores the differences between sounds that changethe meaning of anutterance. For example, the word bet is very similar to the word bed in terms of the physicalmanifestation of sounds. The only difference is that at the end of bet, the vocal chords stop vibrating so that sound is aresult only of the placement of the tongue behind the teeth and the flow of air. However, the meanings of the two wordsare not related in the least. What a vast difference a muscle makes! This is the biggest distinction between phonetics andphonology, although phonologists analyze a lot more than just the obvious differences. They also examine variations onsingle letter pronunciations, words in which multiple variations can exist versus those in which variations are consideredincorrect, and the phonological grammar of languages. If you are a native speaker of English, you pronounce the letter Pthree different ways. Its true. You may not realize it, but you do, and if you were to hear the wrong pronunciation, you

    might not be able to put your finger on the problem, but you would think it sounded really weird. Say the word pop-up.

    The first P has more air behind it than the others, the second is very similar to the first, but it doesnt have much air in it ,and the last one is barely pronounced at all. The word just sort of ends there when your lips close. Now, say it again, butput a lot of air in the final P. See? Weird, right? Thats because the aspirated P (with air) sound is not grammaticallycorrect at the end of an English word. Similarly, Spanish words do not begin with an s sound followed by a consonant,which makes it very difficult for Spanish-speakers who are learning English to say words like school, speak and strict.Phonologists study things like that.

    Side-by-Side Differences Between Phonetics and Phonology

    If youre still confused about which is which, heres a little side-by-side comparison to help you out:

    Phonetics is strictly physical while phonology also pays attention to the function or meaning of a sound. Phonetics only asks, Does this sound go here or not? Phonology asks, Does the meaning change if I put this

    sound here instead of that one? Phonetics makes a pretty general description of sounds and can be used to describe sounds in any language.

    Phonology makes very detailed descriptions of sounds, so each language has its own unique set of symbols(because no two languages use all of the exact same sounds).

    Hopefully that clears things up, but if you need one more way to remember the difference between phonetics andphonology, look at the word endings. Phonetic ends the same way askinetic, which refers to movement. Both are purelyphysical. Phonology, like any other -ology, is more of a science, exploring the hows and whys of the physical.
