My son has, over the past two days, developed a strange pattern in his sleep. He wakes up and screams before he is really ready to be awake, both in the morning and at naptime. I have figured out that if I go in fairly quickly and calm him, then lay him back down in his crib, he goes back to sleep. I just wish he didn't do it to start with...I have no idea what is bothering him. Sigh.
Vocabulary Geek-Out #2
What are elementary sounds? How [are they] classified?
Again, I'll have to go straight to looking this puppy up.
There are forty-two elementary sounds in the English language. They are (to the best of my knowledge on reading their classifications) the basic sounds that letters or combinations of letters is/are capable of making in the language.
There are three classifications for elementary sounds: vocals, subvocals, and aspirates.
Vocals are sounds made with the vocal cords open, and consist of pure tone only, as man.
Subvocals are sounds obstructed by the vocal organs, in the process of articulation, as man.
Aspirates are mere emissions of breath, articulated by the lips, the teeth, the tongue, and the palate, as he.
As educational as that was, I don't feel like going into the long list of all of the sounds, but if you want to see them, you can check out the OLD (1900) grammar book I found on Google Books here.
