The Differences of Phonetics and Phonology
Phonetics focuses on the study of speech sounds, their acoustic and perceptual characteristics, and how they are produced by the speech organs. Phonology focuses on the linguistic (phonological) rules that are organized and combined into meaningful units, which are then combined to form syllables, words, and sentences.
International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA)
This alphabet is different from most alphabets because it is designed to represent the sounds of words, not their spellings.
