During the first two and a half weeks of your TESOL Certificate Program, you will have some new vocabulary words to learn that are part of the TESOL jargon. Let’s just go over five:

phoneme – the smallest significant sound unit; the following are examples: mat, sat, and bat; /m/, /s/, and /b/ are three phoneme of English; depending on one’s accent, there are approximately forth-three phonemes in English.

modal auxiliary verb - will, shall could, should, can, must may, and might are the English modal auxiliary verbs; they have different meaning functions; one function is to express the attitude that a speaker has towards what he/she is saying – this function is know as epistemic; for example there is a difference between “It could be your aunt. and ”It is your aunt.’

phonetics – the study of speech sounds and speakers’ pronunciations of those sounds.

dialect – the manner of a person’s speech that can reveal his/her social or regional origin by the utilization of certain vocabulary words and in the formation of sentence structure; for example by the use of vocabulary - in the US “hood” and in England “bonnet:” is used for the engine compartment cover, and in the grammatical structure: “Have you got…?” England and “Do you have…? US. lexis – vocabulary.
