Last Revised Dec 19th 2002
* No further work is planned on this unfinished site, and many links are now no longer workable *
Phon2 was planned as an online phonetics course under the Module for Europe scheme aimed at students who already have an understanding of basic phonetics and who wish to study phonetics at a more advanced level. It was initially aimed at native speakers of Bulgarian, English, French and German.

Each topic therefore has three coloured buttons: you should first select I and study the chosen topic, then select A for some practical work. Finally, if you are working with PHON2 under the direction of a teacher, you are asked to select E for evaluation. This will provide you with a form which will enable your teacher to see what you have studied, and also to find out your opinion on the various materials. Your tutor will tell you whether you should use the electronic form or the printable one. If you are working independently, and not with a teacher, you can express your opinions about what you have read on the PHON2 Discussion List. Please do not send evaluation forms to us if you are not studying at one of the four PHON2 universities.
There is an international discussion list (called PHONETICS) already in use that you can join. It's a way of asking questions and discussing issues in phonetics with fellow-students and with teachers of phonetics. You can sign on to this at http://www.topica.com/lists/phonetics/
