TEACHING

I lecture in phonetics and phonology at City University, London.Below are links to overheads used in my 2005 lectures.  Many of these require phonetic fonts to be installed on your computer. See this site for free download of a self-extracting file containing all the fonts you need.  However, I now use CitySpace for all my online teaching materials. For old handouts, from universities other than City, please click here.
