Biography[ edit ] In , Jones studied briefly at William Tilly's Marburg Language Institute in Germany , where he was first introduced to phonetics. From to , he studied in Paris under Paul Passy , who was one of the founders of the International Phonetic Association , and in , he married Passy's niece Cyrille Motte. He briefly took private lessons from the British phonetician Henry Sweet. In , he became a part-time lecturer at University College London and was afterwards appointed to a full-time position. In , he became the head of the Department of Phonetics and was appointed to a chair in , a post he held until his retirement in From onwards, Jones was an active member of the International Phonetic Association, and was Assistant Secretary from to , Secretary from to , and President from to
Tongue height close vs. Lip-rounding is also built into the system, so that front vowels such as [i, e, a] have spread or neutral lip postures, but the back vowels such as [o, u] have more marked lip-rounding as vowel height increases. Jones thus arrived at a set of eight "primary Cardinal Vowels", and recorded these on gramophone disc for HMV in Later modifications to his theory allowed for an additional set of eight "secondary Cardinal Vowels" with reverse lip shapes, permitting the representation of eight secondary cardinal vowels front rounded and back unrounded.
Eventually Jones also devised symbols for central vowels and positioned these on the vowel diagram. He made two further disc recordings for Linguaphone in and With the passing years, the accuracy of many of Jones's statements on vowels has come increasingly under question, and most linguists now consider that the vowel quadrilateral must be viewed as a way of representing auditory space in visual form, rather than the tightly defined articulatory scheme envisaged by Jones.
Nevertheless, the International Phonetic Association still uses a version of Jones's model, and includes a Jones-type vowel diagram on its influential International Phonetic Alphabet leaflet contained in the "Handbook of the International Association".
Many phoneticians especially those trained in the British school resort to it constantly as a quick and convenient form of reference. Although Jones is especially remembered for his work on the phonetics and phonology of English, he ranged far more widely. He was the first phonetician to produce, in his "Sechuana Reader", a competent description of an African tone language, including the concept of downstep.
Jones helped develop new alphabets for African languages, and suggested systems of romanisation for Indian languages and Japanese. Issues and evidence in syllabic phonology.
