Sound systems of the languages of Southeast Asia


This program presents the sound systems of the languages of Southeast Asia. On the first page for each language is the inventory of phonemes of the language. From this page, you can choose any category, such as "stops and affricates", "vowels", "stress", etc. Within each category of sounds, words are presented that illustrate each phoneme. Each word is presented in an orthographic representation (in italics), a phonemic representation (enclosed within slant lines) and a phonetic representation (enclosed within square brackets). For the phonemic and phonetic representation, the symbols used are from the International Phonetic Alphabet. Each word is spoken twice in isolation and a third time in a sentence context by a native speaker.
