I have put blood on her two clean yellow shoes.

Here is a fluoroscope film of a man pronouncing various sounds and phrases. You may find it interesting to see the lip and tongue mechanics of producing the sounds.

I'm curious about the sounds he is making - do they have linguistic significance? Is it an alphabet in a language I don't speak, or various um ... phonemes or diphthongs or something? Clearly I don't have the academic background to recognize them. And what is the usefullness of the sentence "I have put blood on her two clean yellow shoes"?
