Feeling moody? 😩

Updated: Mar 18

The sounds in spoken language ... a feature that isn't necessarily the first to jump out when we’re reading literature.

Last week, a couple of my students were very keen to analyse the aural aspect of language. Whilst wonderfully confident in identifying 'fricatives' and 'consonance', they hadn't yet begun to understand the range and significance of their effects ...

And so we went on to discuss the exciting topic of linguistics!

It’s a feature that can often feel like one of English literature’s most compelling secrets - but revealing its mystery is a topic well worth sharing!

I’ve collated a few of the main aural techniques that crop up from KS3 onwards for any other students who are ambivalent about the effects of aural techniques.

Have you found any of these techniques more effective than others?

Let me know what you think!
