(Comparative) study (in structure/mode/ways of pronunciation, articulation, phonetics, or whatever; that is, in differences of speaking mouth postures and resultant speaking weight/force center points) between English/foreign languages and mother tongue, for better (more practical/effective/smooth) hearing/speaking of English/foreign languages.       Copyright.   Young-Won Kim,   yw@voicespec.com

Subject   (English) phonetics puzzle really solved.
1. Re: the article of “Flap” <Column 6>     &    the preceding article of “GRECOnglish vs true/genuine English” <Column 6>

While some words of       “know, knock, mnemonic, pneumatic, honest, psychiatrist,        crown, cream, call, count, can, could,      house, nice, price, take, goat, orange,    think, that, wrong, write, wrought, right,     when/what/why/where,     and     door/book/seek/peer/etc.”      are presumed to be loan words to English      from the people/language with the speaking posture of cp (on center or in the vicinity) in the cerebellum and bp front/high in the mouth,

I find the below words are pronounced without difference/metaphthong from articulation       both in vowels/consonants      when taking the posture of cp on the lowest neck/throat,     and bp/low/front in the mouth      so that they are also presumed to be loan words to (modern) English:    

make/made/mad,   jam,   mode/poke.   tire,    siren,    coat,    chance,      chill,    call,  come,  came,   tall,   sand,    syndrome,   garage,    general,    policy,   gal,    all,   bare,   and,   stay,   can,   walk,    are,   watch,   happy,    chase,    have,   am/was,

2 Therefore, the words with no difference/metaphthong between articulation/pronunciation        such as “song, sing,   king,   in,   on,     what,     dark,    with,   milk,   pull,   silk,  ton,   sin,    tell,     sell,   mill,    etc.”        can be said (not loan but) English proper/original words        in the English primary posture of cp on the vocal CORDS slanted backwards/below and bp on the lowest neck/throat       (if the secondary postures are not considered     which perhaps make new differences between articulation/pronunciation as below words.)    

sang/sung,    told,    sold,  

3. Articulation vs pronunciation:        
Speak/singing    (laugh/cry/coughing/etc.)    are work/performed on the principle/theory of condition/reflex;     that is, (intentional/conscious/voluntary) articulation/condition (in/on the mouth/chest articulation circle)      vs     (semi??-automatic/unconscious/involuntary) pronunciation/reflex (on the hemi-diaphragm reflex/vibration circles)       which (sound) will eventually return/feedback/arrive on/to the mouth/chest       (while) resonating some tensed parts of the sinuses/chest/throat/etc.      

Tail (cluster) behind (main) vowel (of a voice node) is always express/pronounce/felt     (vector/copy/mirrored from the phoneme point)     on bp/cp;      while head (cluster) and (main) vowel are return/reflect/pronounced      on/to the phoneme point(s)     when cp is out the mouth articulation circle,    but reflect/return/pronounced      on/to (not the phoneme points but)    cp/bp     when cp is in the mouth articulation circle;        though physically fricative/plosive-like consonant sound expression/effects are always occur/pronounced/sounded      on the (articulation structures of) consonant phoneme spot/points.      

4. English/Korean PHONETIC words denote (not pronunciation but) articulation;       that is, to show    (not what to pronounce but)    what (alphabet tension points) to articulate/tense/switch/condition.           If the phoneme points of “quite” are serially tense/articulated       (though I rather articulate   “<qu> i <te>”   for convenience’s sake;    that is, digraphs of “qu” for head   and “te” for tail   respectively;    tail on bp/cp also for convenience’s sake)       with English speaking posture of cp/bp,          (not Greconglish sound [kwait] but)      [k(oa/와/ㅘ)(ui/ü)t] or [k(oa)ü   (ŋ)üt   (t=)] are (metaphthong) reflect/vibrate/pronounce/sounded in English intonation/accents on the hemi-diaphragms.         And if the phoneme points of “crown” are serially tense/articulated with English speaking posture of cp/bp,          (not Greconglish sound [kraun] but)      [krawn] or [k=r  raw   w=n] are (metaphthong) reflect/vibrate/pronounce/sounded on the hemi-diaphragms    while automatic vowels are inserted between consecutive consonants like [k=r  --   w=n].    

Interestingly,         when the phoneme points of “quite” are tense/articulated with KOREAN speaking posture of cp/bp,          전혀 [xΛn   h(iΛ)] of Korean equivalent are (metaphthong) reflect/vibrate/pronounce/sounded on the hemi-diaphragms.         And when the phoneme points of “crown” are tense/articulated with KOREAN speaking posture of cp/bp,          왕관/王冠 [(ŋ)(oa)ŋ  g(oa)n] are (metaphthong) reflected on the hemi-diaphragms.        Many English words still show metaphthong/differences between articulation/pronunciation     while Koreans have delete/corrected those metaphthong/differences between articulation/pronunciation on the list/dictionary one by one historically whenever possible.  

Paradoxically or in reality, people can not pronounce anything.     They only articulate/condition;   then the hemi-diaphragms reflect/pronounce/vibrate/make/produce sounds.        We can only/simply push the button to turn the light on,    which is impossible without power plant, cable, etc.    

5. (English & general) phonetics puzzle really solved/completed/finished,     I now dare think/say;    at least for Koreans/Japanese/etc. so as to be able to solve English hearing/speaking difficulty/handicap satisfactorily     by themselves.

When I have found the fact of “GRECOnglish vs true/genuine English”,      I feel      my (up-to-now) continuous every-week work/discoveries on/for English speaking/hearing/phonetics/etc. will be stop/finished     except the (minor??) arrangement/adjustments      like the above/preceding column of “3. Articulation vs pronunciation”      (and practices).        The (further) study/works such as      “Who (or which language) had the speaking posture of      cp (on center or somewhere) in the cerebellum and bp front/high in the mouth      or       cp on the lowest neck and bp/low/front in the mouth”        will be given on/to the historians and/or anthropologists/linguists/etc.         And the researches of (muscle) structure/function/working of the hemi-diaphragms/etc. and the principle/theory of condition/reflex on speaking       will be the works of biologists/anatomists/physicists/etc.    

6. Really speaking or rather condition/articulation as for foreign language??

When speaking mother tongue,      thinking/intention (itself) of concept is nearly/really equal to condition (of/between condition/reflex) of speaking     and tense/articulations of cp/bp, the sinuses and so on are accordingly/unconsciously/automatically performed (even??) without knowledge of phonetics     so as to be reflect/pronounced.       On the other hand, condition of foreign language speaking requires the knowledge of phonetics and repositioning of cp/bp and so on    in order (particularly for Koreans/Japanese?) to eventually achieve satisfactory/easy hearing/speaking (of the foreign/English language).
