ranscription phontique des sons de la langue anglaise


Pourquoi un tableau des sons de la langue anglaise ?
Cest bien simple. Lis ces quatre mots : flood, foot, soon, door. Tu las devin : ils se prononcent diffremment et pourtant ils contiennent exactement les mmes voyelles. En anglais, les mots ne se prononcent pas comme ils scrivent, comment sy retrouver ? Si tu nas personne de comptent qui le demander, utilise ton dictionnaire. Si tu cherches le sens des quatre mots cits plus haut, tu trouveras tout dabord leur transcription phontique. flood [fl d] foot [ft] soon [su:n] door [d :]

Lorsque le mot comporte plusieurs syllabes, une apostrophe est place devant la syllabe accentue. [ifint] : efficient est accentu sur la 2e syllabe (fi). Ainsi, lalphabet phontique, comme les notes de musique que lon crit sur une partition, permet denregistrer les sons dun mot sur le papier, ce qui est trs utile lorsquon tudie langlais, a fortiori distance ! Rappelle-toi que : Les symboles phontiques ressemblent parfois des lettres, ou sont parfois diffrents. Les symboles reprsentent des sons. un son correspond un symbole et vice versa. Lorsque tu utilises une transcription phontique, lis-la tout haut puisque ce sont des sons. Chaque fois que tu cherches un mot nouveau dans le dictionnaire, pense lire sa transcription phontique et note-la dans ton carnet de vocabulaire au mme titre que la dfinition du mot en anglais, son illustration ou sa traduction. Tu mmoriseras mieux le vocabulaire du cours en associant orthographe, son et accentuation. Tu retrouveras cette transcription dans un dictionnaire bilingue ou unilingue. Il existe cependant des variantes dun dictionnaire lautre, concernant les symboles. Par exemple, certains ouvrages utilisent le symbole [u] au lieu de [], [] au lieu de [], [ ] au lieu de [e] etc Ne ten fais pas ! Jette un petit coup dil au tableau phontique du dictionnaire et tu raliseras que ces variantes sont mineures.

Parler et communiquer
Communication works in two ways and involves at least two people : the person who speaks and who wants his message understood, and the person who listens and who wants to understand the speakers message.

The music of the language is very important in communication. It is often difficult for French people to understand English or to speak English correctly because they pronounce some words wrongly or use the wrong intonation at the end of sentences.

Je discrimine les sons de langlais et je les reproduis


- La discrimination auditive des sons permet lauditeur de se reprer dans la chane parle et de donner du sens lintonation. - Elle est indispensable une bonne comprhension des documents sonores. - Elle permet de se dgager des habitudes dexpression lies sa langue maternelle et par imitation de mieux se faire comprendre dun anglophone. - Cest un des lments de la communication.

Sad is British but of Indian origin. India is part of the Commonwealth, an association of about fifty independent countries which used to be British colonies. After independence, many people migrated from these countries to Britain. Between 1950 and 1970, the main immigrants to Britain were Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis and Jamacans. Today, Britain is largely multicultural. This is particularly so in large cities such as London where more than fifty nationalities with communities of more than 5000 exist. In a single day, 300 languages are spoken in London. Many Londoners today are the grandchildren of immigrants from the Caribbean and Indian subcontinents decades ago and widely spoken languages in Britain include Punjabi, spoken by 52% of British Asians, Urdu, Hindi and Bengali.

La forme interrogative : Have you been to Australia ? La forme affirmative : I have been to Australia. La forme ngative : I havent been to Australia. On emploie le present perfect pour tablir un lien entre le prsent et le pass. En rgle gnrale, ce temps permet dexprimer le rsultat prsent dune action passe. Par exemple, I know Australia because I have been there. Le present perfect permet donc de faire un bilan. On peut faire le bilan dune action finie, ou dune action qui est envisage jusquau moment prsent avec ever, yet, not yet, already et never. On peut galement employer le prsent perfect pour dcrire une action rcente avec just Andy has just phoned Wendy. Il est aussi possible enfin demployer le present perfect pour dcrire une action qui a commenc dans le pass et continu dans le prsent Wendy has known Andy for a long time/since she was 15.

Reading and understanding

Read the following text and then answer the questions which follow. Lis le texte qui suit puis rponds aux questions poses.

Sad, one of the rap contestants, is a British Indian. Britain is a largely multicultural society and the Indian community is the largest ethnic minority community in Britain. There are more than 1 million Indians living in Great Britain, a population that has grown by 25% in the last decade. Indians represent 1.8% of the total British population and 23% of the ethnic minority population there. Well over a third of the Indians who live in Britain were born in the UK. British Indians have emerged as key actors in the economic, political and cultural development of modern Britain and lots of Indians have integrated mainstream British institutions. Sad, a dynamic and energetic young businessman perfectly mirrors what British Indian culture attempts to teach its youth drive, industry and hard work. Indians are no longer limited to small corner shop markets and many are today successful entrepreneurs in a variety of sectors. Most Indians live in London which is home to about 40% of British Indians. Next, we have the West Midlands where 17% of British Indians live, followed by the East Midlands with 12%. The principal language of communication for those under 40 is English, while it is English, Punjabi, Gujarati or Hindi for those over 40. Generally, 60% of British Indians can speak English very well. However, young people are more fluent in English than the older generation and it appears that Indian men are more proficient in spoken and written English than women.
