SEGMENTATION Although the term segmentation has usually been used for this process in modern phonetics, it presents a bit of a problem: segmenting implies literally chopping up the signal into isolable segments, each of which is a particular sound in the sound stream. If we try to do this by literally chopping up the signal using a waveform editing program, we run into serious difficulty because of the blending or blurring effect: identifying the beginnings and ends of sounds is often quite impossible with any degree of certainty.
In a graphical representation of this classification, a matrix is set up with the rows corresponding to the different manners of articulation and the columns corresponding to the different place of articulation. In each cell of the matrix is entered a symbol indicating the sound produced at this intersection of the two parameters. This reveals, however, that for each cell there are often two possibilities. Thus there are two bilabial plosives in English: [p] and [b]. They are distinguished by whether or not there is potentially accompanying vocal cord vibration.
So, for example, the word cat will always have the same basic phonemic representation, /kæt/, in a language even if any one pronunciation differs slightly from others. It is not until the variation is deliberately produced by the speaker that we say the pronunciation is different. Thus, some speakers will pronounce cat as /kæt/, whereas others will say /kæt ̚/ (/t /̚ is an intended unreleased /t/) – deliberately changing the way /t/ is pronounced according to their accent; both speakers are pronouncing the same word, /kæt/, though.
