Subject: Gimson's Pronunciation of English by Alan Cruttenden (Revised)

Sixth Edition
Revised by Alan Cruttenden, University of Manchester

(An Arnold Publication)

Since its first publication in 1962, Gimson's Pronunciation of English
has been widely acknowledged as the standard book of reference on all
aspects of English pronunciation. This sixth edition comprises
substantial revisions, with particular emphasis on those areas that
have seen rapid expansion or progression over the last five years. The
new edition gives additional guidance on how to teach the sounds of
English and offers specific advice to foreign learners, for whom a new
sub-section on pronouncing dictionaries has been added. As with all
previous revisions, great care has been given to preserving the spirit
of the original edition, so that it will maintain its position as the
preeminent reference in the field.
