Abstract:

This book examines some of the ways linguists can express what native
speakers know about the sound system of their language. Intended for the
absolute beginner, it requires no previous background in linguistics,
phonetics or phonology, and provides a base from which more advanced
treatments may be approached. It begins with an examination of the
foundations of articulatory and acoustic phonetics, moves on to the basic
principles of phonology, and ends with an outline of some further issues
within contemporary phonology. Varieties of English, particularly Received
Pronunciation and General American, form the focus of consideration, but
aspects of the phonetics and phonology of other languages are discussed as
well.

This new edition includes a chapter on intonation, stress and tone. It has
been updated throughout to take account of the latest developments in
phonological theory but without sacrificing the book's ease of use for
beginners.
