Within phonetics, a phone is:

  • a speech sound or gesture considered a physical event without regard to its place in the phonology of a language
  • a speech segment that possesses distinct physical or perceptual properties
  • the basic unit revealed via phonetic speech analysis

A phonetic transcription is enclosed within square brackets, rather than the slashes of a phonemic transcription.
