Abstract:

NEW EDITION!

Practical Phonetics and Phonology: 

- presents the essentials of the subject in a lively way whilst stressing
the day-to-day applications of phonetics and phonology 


- covers all the core concepts of speech science such as: the phoneme,
syllable structure, production of speech, vowel and consonant
possibilities, glottal settings, stress, rhythm, intonation and the
surprises of connected speech 

- incorporates classic readings from key names in the discipline including
David Abercrombie, David Crystal, Dennis Fry, Daniel Jones, Peter
Ladefoged, and Steven Pinker 

- includes an audio CD containing a collection of samples provided by
genuine speakers of twenty-five accent varieties from Britain, Ireland, the
USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Singapore and
West Africa. 

New features of this edition include: new readings by Peter Trudgill and
John Wells; a section on English orthography; an appendix of websites
dealing with phonetics and accents of English; revised and updated
activities and examples. The accompanying CD now includes: British Estuary
English and New York English.

The second edition of Practical Phonetics and Phonology will appeal to all
students of English language and linguistics and those training for a
certificate in TEFL.
