Maybe, this is not the best place to ask this question, but what is the difference between 'phonetics' and 'phonology'?
e.g. the phonology of English, the phonetics of English
Do you have any ideas? Thank you.
Basically, Phonetics is the science of the physical nature of the speech organs, and their actions and movement, the properties of the sound waves which carry speech,and the physical nature of the organs that receive and interpret speech

Most English teachers work with some understanding of aspects of the phonology of English. Few of us have an in-depth understanding of the phonetics.
Think of tools and toolkits. Ever language has its own toolkit (phonology).
