Abstract:
			
Pronouncing English is a textbook for teaching English phonetics and
phonology, offering an original "stress-based" approach while
incorporating all the standard course topics. Drawing on current
linguistic theory, it uniquely analyzes prosody first, and then
discusses its effects on pronunciation--emphasizing suprasegmental
features such as meter, stress, and intonation, then the vowels and
consonants themselves.

Distinguished by being the first work of its kind to be based on an
exhaustive statistical analysis of all the lexical entries of an
entire dictionary, Pronouncing English is complemented by a list of
symbols and a glossary. Richard Teschner and M. Stanley Whitley
present an improved description of English pronunciation and conclude
each chapter with suggestions on how to do a better job of teaching
it. An appendix with a brief introduction to acoustic phonetics - the
basis for the perception vs. the production of sounds - is also
included. Revolutionary in its field, Pronouncing English declares
that virtually all aspects of English pronunciation - from the vowel
system to the articulation of syllables, words, and sentences - are
determined by the presence or absence of stress.

The accompanying CD-ROM carries audio recordings of many of the
volume's exercises, more than 100 text and sound files, and data files
on which the statistical observations were based.
