    Further ,  The course in "English phonetics and phonology" is introductory. Building on the students’ Practical English Phonetics knowledge and skills acquired in year 1.  A comparative contrastive approach is adopted throughout the course. Central issues are: the articulatory and acoustic aspects of speech production and perception, the vocalic and consonantal systems of English and Bulgarian, phonology of the syllable, the word and the utterance, intra-lingual and inter-lingual transcription, connected speech processes, rhythm and intonation, a brief presentation of alternative phonological theories.

   What is more, phonetics provides data for phonology. These two disciplines are very closely related to each other and understanding phonology without a good knowledge of phonetics is almost impossible as phonetics ‘feeds’ phonology with data, which is then used in exploring sound patterns of a language.
