Sound charts for Ling 103

This webpage is for LING103 students who are going to take production/transcription exams from me. Please note that my pronunciations carry no particular authority. The charts here are also slightly different from the official IPA ones as I added some sounds that my students will be tested on.

**I recorded these sounds many years ago and I realized that some don't sound great to me now. I'll try to record again sometime soon!
