Faculty & College
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
describe and transcribe speech sounds using phonetic terminology and the International Phonetic Alphabet, and HCE vowels
describe concepts in the linguistic domains of phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, discourse and pragmatics.
demonstrate skills in the grammatical analysis of standard and non-standard forms of language
reflect on the application of phonetic and linguistic knowledge, and language diversity, in speech pathology practice
