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-three 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 Well; 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.
