Phonology for TKT

‘Phonology’ is the third lesson in TKT Module 1. A question based on phonology is quite frequent in TKT Module 1. Phonology is the study of sound features (e.g. phonemes, word stress, intonation and sentence stress) used to communicate meaning. You are expected to have a very good understanding on International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) of English.

Tell me about this course on phonology.

Is it free?
Yes, this course on phonology is a free course.

Does it cover up everything in detail?
Not in detail, but it will be an ideal revision to brush up what you have already know about phonology. On the other hand, it’s not quite practical to set up a comprehensive short term course on a very general subject area such as phonology.
