From Cree to English. Part One: the Sound System.
Soveran, Marilylle
This study compares the sound systems of Cree and English, with special attention given to identifying the differences between the two systems which are likely to cause interference or confusion. Specific teaching suggestions are provided for those who are teaching the English sound system to students who are more familiar with the Cree system. Facial diagrams illustrating the oral production of difficult sounds and suggestions for making drill sessions interesting are included with each drill. The pronunciation drill is described in some detail in the section "Teaching the Voicing Distinction." A technical knowledge of linguistics is not assumed on the part of the reader. (AMM)
