Description : A complete basic course in English phonetics and phonology which combines academic material with practical exercises, both written and recorded. Since the publication of the first edition in 1983, this course has established itself as the most practical, comprehensive text in the field and become widely used in many parts of the world in universities and other institutions of higher education. It is used by both native and non-native speakers alike, and is suitable for those training to teach English as well as those studying the language at an advanced level. This new edition takes into account recent developments in the teaching of phonology. It includes updated references, fuller coverage of intonation, and a new chapter on different varieties of English with illustrative recorded material. English Phonetics and Phonology bridges the gap between simple pronunciation handbooks and technical phonetics and phonology textbooks. It presents the basic factual material and crucial theoretical issues in a practical and readable way. At the end of each chapter there are notes giving information on further reading, discussion of the more challenging issues, written exercises and, where appropriate, suggestions for teachers. In addition the audio CDs include recorded exercises for every chapter which are particularly helpful for non-native speakers. A full answer key is available at the back of the book. Additional exercises and other supporting material are available online.

Description : 'Review from previous edition 'an introduction to general phonetics that integrates the articulatory and the acoustic aspects of the subject in a way that few other introductory works do; that gives a comprehensive view of the whole subject' -Kritikon LitterarumThis book is an introduction to practical phonetics, that is, to the description and classification of the sounds of speech. The book's unique approach leads readers to explore the entire range of human sounds by a series of introspective experiments carried out in their own vocal tracts. This highly practical exploration of the subject is informed throughout by recent research, particularly in the aerodynamics and acoustics of speech. The second edition, now part of the Oxford Textbooks in Linguistics series, has been updated throughout, and is now consistent with the revised International Phonetic Alphabet (1996).

Description : "Introduction to Phonetics and Phonology: From Concepts to Transcription "provides readers with a basic foundation in both phonetics and phonology. The book has two goals: the first is to connect phonetics and phonology into a conceptual unity and the second is to demonstrate the practical relevance of phonetics, phonology, and phonetic transcription for beginning students in communication disorders and related disciplines, such as linguistics or education. Written with an abundance of real-life examples, this first edition provides readers with a large base of information, from the basic definitions of phonetics and phonology to their practical, clinical applications when analyzing speech samples. The text's uniqueness lies in how it connects the various concepts with practical examples. This helps students to solidify what they are learning and understand its relevance to clinical practice. Highlights of this New Text... Unique to this text -- A chapter on Phonological development explains the development of speech in children using three theoretical models, one of which is a contemporary model emphasizing nonlinear phonologies. Aseparate set of DVDs are available containing both audio and video resources for practice in transcription. This DVD set can be purchased using ISBN: 0-205-40285-2. Receive a 10% discount on both the text and the DVD set by using this special package ISBN: 0-205-62715-3 Case studies at the beginning of each chapter highlight specific concepts of that particular chapter. The case study is then revisited throughout the chapter, demonstrating how the information could be applied in a real-life situation. Extensive learning aids are provided in the form of focus questions, concept exercises, further readings, key terms, critical thinking questions, and multiple choicequestions. A thorough discussion of dialect, whichincludes definitions and examples of regional dialects, ethnic dialects, and foreign dialects. A chapter in which the core information presented for phonetics and phonology is integrated into a series of case studies which apply this knowledge to the analysis of speech. Examples include the analysis of regional dialects, emerging phonology, and a child with disordered articulation. Phonetic transcription workbook is included as an additional study aid as Part II of the textbook. This workbook guides students through a systematic learning process beginning with the identification of sounds within words, to transcribing multisyllabic words and short phrases.

Description : Basics of Phonetics and English Phonology is a textbook for students of English, designed for students following BA foundation courses as no prior knowledge of linguistics is required. It provides students with a sound understanding of the principles of phonetics in general, but also with a special focus on English phonology. In addition, the exercises offer systematic practical training in IPA transcription. The book is designed for German non-native speakers of English, as specific difficulties in practical pronunciation are highlighted, but it can equally be used by any student interested in the mechanisms of spoken English. The transcription exercises at the end of each chapter are both in British and US American standard pronunciation.
