Phoneme:The smallest phonetic unit in a language that is capable of conveying a distinction in meaning, as the m of mat and the b of bat in English.

Allophone:1. Linguistics A predictable phonetic variant of a phoneme. For example, the aspirated t of top, the unaspirated t of stop, and the tt (pronounced as a flap) of batter are allophones of the English phoneme /t/.

Both definitions were taken from "the free dictionary", Online Dictionary, Encyclopedia and Thesaurus. Free access.

Most basic concepts or grammar rules are covered, although briefly, on this website.

Cheers.
