Comment: Third edition

This is a complete basic course in English phonetics and
phonology. Since its publication it has established itself as the most
practical and comprehensive text in the field. It is used by both
native and non-native speakers, who may be training to teach English
or studying the language at an advanced level. The new edition takes
into account recent developments on the teaching of phonology, and a
number of improvements have been made in response to feedback from
users world wide. English Phonetics and Phonology bridges the gap
between simple pronunciation handbooks and technical phonetics and
phonology textbooks. The chapters are cross-referenced to the
recordings which consist of practical exercises on two cassettes or
CDs. At the end of each chapter there are notes giving information on
further reading, discussion of difficult issues and, where
appropriate, suggestions for teachers.
