This popular and accessible introduction to phonetics is now available in a
fully updated second edition. Peter Ladefoged describes how languages use a
variety of different sounds, many of them quite unlike any that occur in
well-known languages.

Important topics covered in Vowels and Consonants include:

- the main forces operating on the sounds of languages
- the acoustic components of speech and speech synthesis
- computers and Text-To-Speech systems and speech recognition systems
- descriptions of the sounds of a wide variety of languages that are
reproduced on the accompanying CD

This revised edition includes a new chapter on how we listen to speech and
the greatly expanded CD now contains data on a hundred languages to
reinforce learning and bring the descriptions to life.

"Only Peter Ladefoged, the world's leading phonetician, could produce a
work like this: an authoritative and thorough introduction to phonetics
written in a style that can be understood by a reader with no prior
background in linguistics"
-- John Ohala, University of California, Berkeley

Linguistic Field(s): Phonetics
