Cartoon Theories of Linguistics
Part E—Phonetics vs. Phonology
Hilário Parenchyma, C.Phil.
Unintentional University of Lghtnbrgstn
We will skip the introduction, as we have been there, done that. Once more into the breach! For this installment in our series on Cartoon Theories of Linguistics, we will turn our attention to Phonetics and Phonology and the difference between the two:
Thanks to Professor Phlogiston, of the Unintentional University of Lghtnbrgstn, for the opportunity of a lifetime, as a student, to, on this occasion, share with so many of my fellow linguisticians my views, as illustrated above, concerning matters, which are of such immeasurable import to me, in this forum!—H.P.
