Normes phonétiques

1) Variétés d'anglais

  • Le premier exercice de l'épreuve consiste généralement en une transcription d'un passage du texte donné pour l'épreuve, environ 5 lignes.
  • Il est mentionné sur tous les sujets que le candidat a le devoir de mentionner la variété d'anglais qu'il choisi pour la transcription:

- soit SBE pour Southern British English

- soit GenAm/GA pour General American

Toutes les autres variétés d'anglais sont exclues.
Si vous ne mentionnez pas la variété choisie sur votre copie, vous êtes pénalisés de 0.5 point en moins. Ne l'oubliez pas !

2) Autres éléments à faire apparaître dans la transcription

  • Parfois, il arrive qu'il soit demandé pour l'exercice de transcription de prendre en compte les phénomènes de discours tels que les R de liaisons. Il faut donc lire rigoureusement le sujet pour bien voir ce qu'il faut transcrire.
  • L'accent de mot est demandé la plupart du temps, faites attention à ne pas en oublier !
