This textbook is a revision and expansion of A Manual for Articulatory
Phonetics, compiled by Rick Floyd in 1981 and revised in 1986. It
includes many other people's materials from articulatory phonetics
courses as taught for over sixty years in the training schools of SIL
International. It also includes much information from sources outside
of SIL.

It is written in an informal, personal style and is a practical book
for teachers and students alike. Most chapters begin with a statement
of goals and conclude with a list of key concepts and exercises.
Examples, tables, and explanatory figures are distributed liberally

This book is oriented primarily towards native speakers of American
English, primarily with reference to examples used to guide
pronunciation of new sounds. However, most of the information
included should be profitable to students regardless of their native

The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) is used for the phonetic
transcription, but the equivalent Americanist symbols are also given
in order to equip the student to use other linguists' materials,
regardless of which system they use to transcribe their data.
