Listen to me make funny sounds

This may interest a couple of you. I've posted links to some of this week's homework for my phonetic class. First up, they have to listen to this file and write down what it says in the phonetic alphabet. Then I gave them 5 more nonsense words in the phonetic alphabet and they are supposed to come into my office and say something vaguely like this.

Some of the more interesting sounds you will have heard, if you listened to the files, are (my version of) a click, an implosive consonant, and nasalized vowels.

Hey- Fun to listen to- nice, smooth voice - even with the weird sounds!
