    The rest of the test:
    Orthography (Time, one hour)
    1. What is meant by the following: Alphabet, phonetic orthography, etymology, syllabication?
    a.) Alphabet - A system of characters, signs and symbols used to indicate letters or speech sounds, the basis of all writing.
    b.) Phonetic orthography - The standardization of the sounds of the letters of the alphabet in accordance with accepted usage. This varies from area to area within our nation, but is becoming more and more uniform as communication and travel between the sections increases.
    c.) Etymology -- The study of the origin and development of a word, tracing it back to its original language and to its sources in contemporary or earlier languages.
    d.) Syllabication - The process of dividing a word into syllables, to determine the phonemic sound, the accent, and roots, to enable the reader to better grasp the meaning and pronounce the word in speech and writing.
    2. What are elementary sounds? How classified?
    The elementary sounds are the consonants and vowels. A consonant is any speech sound produced by stopping and releasing the air stream (p, t, k, b, d, g), by stopping it at one point while it escapes at another (m, n, l, r), by forcing it through a loosely closed or vary narrow passage (f, v, s, z, sh, zh, th, H, kh, h, w, y) or a combination of these means. A vowel (a, e, i, o, u and sometimes y) is a voiced speech sound characterized by generalized friction of the air passing in a continuous stream through the pharynx and open mouth, but with no constriction narrow enough to produce local friction.
    Phonemes include all significant differences of sound, including features of voicing, place and manner of articulation, accent, and secondary features of nasalization, glottalization, labialization, and the like. Labial sounds are mainly formed by the lips; glottal speech sounds are formed mainly by closure of the glottis; nasal sounds are formed primarily by resonance in the nasal passages.
    3. What are the following, and give examples of each: Trigraph, subvocals, diphthong, cognate letters, linguals?
    a.) A trigraph is a combination of three letters representing one sound. An example is eau as in bureau.
    b.) A subvocal is beneath the voice, a silent or nearly silent sound.
    c.) A dighthong is a complex vowel sound made by gliding continuously from the position of one vowel to that for another within the same same syllable. An example is (ou) as in down.
    d.) Cognate letters are related in derivation, for instance, i and y.
    e.) Linguals are sounds articulated by using the tongue, for instance the sound th.
    4. Give four substitutes for caret 'u'.
    Substitutes for caret 'u' are oo as in tool, eau as in bureau, ew as in crew.
    5. Give two rules for spelling words with final 'e'. Name two exceptions under each rule.
    a.) When spelling words having a final silent e, drop the e when adding a suffix beginning with a vowel. Exceptions - knowledgeable, despiteous
    b.) If the suffix or verb ending begins with a consonant, keep the final e. Exceptions - truly, judgment
    6. Give two uses of silent letters in spelling. Illustrate each.
    Sometimes words have silent letters. These follow patterns that can be memorized.
    Examples:
    gn, pn, kn = n as in gnome, pneumonia, knife
    rh, wr = r as in rhyme, wrestle
    pt, ght = t as in ptomaine, height
    ps, sc = s as in psalm, science
    wh = h as in whole
    7. Define the following prefixes and use in connection with a word: bi, dis, mis, pre, semi, post, non, inter, mono, super.
    a.) bi - having two elements or natures, i.e., biangular, bifurcated.
    b.) dis - meaning away or apart from, i.e., disassemble, disregard.
    c.) mis - meaning wrong, wrongly, bad, badly, i.e., misstep, misapply.
    d.) pre - meaning before, ahead of, i.e., predate, prescience.
    e.) semi - meaning not whole, partly, not fully, i.e., semicircle, semifinal.
    f.) post - meaning after, behind, i.e., postscript, postpartum.
    g.) non - meaning not, i.e., nonhuman, nonagressive.
    h.) inter - meaning between, among, or reciprocal, i.e., intercede, interchangeable.
    i.) mono - meaning one, single, alone, i.e., monocline, monotheism.
    j.) super - meaning above, over, on top of, i.e., superabundant, superpose.
    8. Mark diacritically and divide into syllables the following, and name the sign that indicates the sound: Card, ball, mercy, sir, odd, cell, rise, blood, fare, last.
    [ Note: due to the limitations of html, the "macron" diacritical mark for vowels, a dash over the vowel, signifying the sound of the vowel name, is shown as

    Dial-up settings These are for ME but some will be simular in XP.I hope you find some of it useful.
    Download & install Cablenut;use the ccs file for your OS & connection.
    I make these adjustments to Cablenut for a custom dial-up file if it doesn't make yours work better you can use the ones that
    it puts in automatically.On the RWIN use the one of the settings suggested by

    I think we need this somewhere as a sticky.For now I'm going to post it in general.These are the codes that work for Windows ME.
    So would someone with XP see if they work for them.Or post the codes that do work for XP.
    If your posting & need one of these letters or symbols.Just hold down your Alt key while typing the code in the number pad.btw they won't work with the numbers at the top of the keyboard.
