Please feel free to hand in your homework assignments hand-written, unless you're instructed to hand it in on cybercampus. The following links are useful if you type any of your assignments or for longer papers in more advanced classes.

Here is a useful website for syntax and morphology trees.

Phonology (flapping): Listen to this video and to this video. In the first video a child star is about to sing a song suggested by a boy in the audience. In the second video, the child star is now older and is hallucinating she is a young child singing the same song. The line is, "I've written a letter to daddy." Try to listen for differences in flapping between the three speakers saying this line:

Boy: [aɪ̯v ɹɪʔn̩ ə lεɾɹ̩ ɾə dæɾi]

Girl: [aɪ̯v ɹɪʔn̩ ɐ lεɾɹ̩ tʰu dædi]

Woman: [aɪ̯v ɹɪʔn̩ ɐ lεtɹ̩ tʰu dædi]

Phonology (Korean rules): Listen to this video and try to figure out what rules of Korean phonology the people in the video are talking about? Try to write the rules.
