What is Phonetics - Definition?

What is Phonetics? Definition of Phonetics? The general study of the characteristics of speech sounds is called phonetics.
Our main interest will be in articulatory phonetics, which is the study of how
speech sounds are made, or ‘articulated’. Other areas of study are acoustic
phonetics, which deals with the physical properties of speech as sound waves
in the air, and auditory phonetics (or perceptual phonetics) which deals with
the perception, via the ear, of speech sounds.
