Phonetics and Phonology for English Teachers in Southeast Asia

David H. Deterding and Gloria R. Poedjosoedarmo

This textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to the phonetics
and phonology of English in straightforward language, suitable for
non-specialist readers. It is especially intended for students in
Southeast Asia who are preparing to be English teachers, so in most
cases where examples from non-English languages are given, the
languages are those found in Southeast Asia. In addition, for each of
the major languages of East and Southeast Asia, there is a chapter
giving a brief description of its sound system. These chapters enable
students to make a comparison between the sounds of English and those
of languages they are likely to use or hear.

In the modern world, most students are likely to come into contact
with more than one variety of English. This book therefore provides a
description of the two major standard accents of English that students
are likely to hear on radio, TV and in films: Southern Standard
British (SSB) and General American (GA).
