Abstract:

Editor’s Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced book.

New updated, enlarged and recast edition. The first part gives the
‘International’ accent of English. This is not meant to be a simplified
version for foreigners speaking to other foreigners, so often falsely
presented as the solution for intercultural communication. The International
accent of English, on the contrary (both in its current and native-like
versions), is the sublimation of the American and British neutral (or
‘standard’) accents. This avoids the inconvenient peculiarities of both these
accents, while privileging their common and most general features, reducing
thus their differences and real or seeming exceptions with respect to its
current and highly unsatisfactory spelling.

The neutral American and British accents are always given along, for
comparisons and useful information, as well: Vowels, Consonants (including The
‘whole truth’ on English R), Stress and Intonation (including paraphonics).
There follow a few chapters with phonotonetic transcriptions: Conversations,
Literary texts, and the IPA sample text. The ‘mediatic’ American (or ‘General
American’) and British (or ‘Estuary English’) accents are also fully treated
in separate chapters.

The second part — with 32 linguistic maps and more than 300 clear (though
rigorous and extensive) illustrations for vowels, consonants and intonation —
describes more than 200 accents: 121 native (up to 146 with variants), 63
bilingual, and 30 foreign accents. They are so distributed: North America:
Canada & USA (including 13 Native-American accents). British Isles: England,
Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Other accents: Australia, New Zealand & South
Africa. Second language: Caribbean, Far East, India, Africa, Malta, Gibraltar,
the Falklands, and Foreign accents.

We can safely say that the book provides the most accurate descriptions of
English accents ever done, in 900 pages, thanks to very many clear figures and
precise transcriptions, with no ambiguities, that overcome the too obvious
limits of the official IPA conception and symbols, sadly designed just for
phonemic intralinguistic purposes, not for more useful interlinguistic and
diaphonemic purposes.

11 Appendices complete the book with a concise international-pronunciation
dictionary with about 2200 selected words, and 6000 homophonic words; more on
vowels, consonants, intonation, voices, and diachronic stages. A selected
annotated bibliographical review to safely direct readers.
