Abstract

There three different ‘t’ in Korean are ‘ㄷ’, ‘ㄸ’, ‘ㅌ’ and generally transcribed in the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) as /pʰ, tʰ,kʰ/ /p,t,k,/ and /p’,t’,k’/. It could be difficult to tell the difference, but there certainly is a clear difference depending on the strength of pronunciation. ‘ㄷ’ is the sound that has the weakest strength among the three sounds. It is pronounced as /d/ rather than /t/, and it is barely aspirated. ‘ㄸ’ has a stronger strength than ‘ㄷ’ and is usually aspirated, but it is still close to /d/. Although there aren’t words in English that are similar to the sound ‘ㄸ’, it is easy to understand it as a strong /d/. ‘ㅌ’ makes a /t/ with the strongest strength among the three and is aspirated the most.

Praat is software that allows users to analyze specifically of each part of certain sounds. We could know how the three consonants are different from each other.
