The scope of phonetics is to identify the speech sounds, then classify and describe them using the symbolization in the IPA chart. There are three sub-fields of phonetics: articulatory phonetics which is the study of how the vocal tract produces the sounds of the language, acoustic phonetics which focuses on the physical properties of the speech sounds, and auditory phonetics which is concerned with how the listeners perceive these sounds. 2. Phonology:Phonology is the study of speech sound types (segmental) and prosodic (intonation) features which have a differential value in the language. It studies the way in which speakers systematically use a selection of units phonemes or intonemes in order to express meaning. It investigates the phonetic phenomenon from the point of view of their use. Within phonology, two branches of study are usually recognized segmental and supra-segmental.The primary aim of phonology is to discover the principles that govern the way that sounds are organized in languages to determine which phonemes are used and how they pattern the phonological structure of a language. The properties of different sound systems are then compared, and hypotheses developed about the rules underlying the use of sounds in particular groups of languages and
