Abstract:

"Lodge uses his practical classroom experience to provide safe guidance,
and his theoretical perspective to provide a phonetically more accurate
non-segmental foundation to phonetics. I particularly like the extensive
introductions to continuous speech, prosody, resonance and segmentation,
which will be of interest to phonologists and more advanced students of
phonetics as well as beginners."
- Professor Jim Scobbie, Speech Science Research Centre, Queen Margaret
University, Edinburgh, UK.

A Critical Introduction to Phonetics presents core areas of the subject
from refreshing new perspectives. It takes a new stance on the presentation
of basic phonetic skills for students of linguistics. Using examples drawn
from a wide-range of languages Ken Lodge introduces the key aspects of
phonetics, examining the difference between speech and writing, the
physiology of speech production, basic and detailed articulation, and
acoustic phonetics.

The book contains a practical guide to transcriptions from sound
recordings, and a section on applications of phonetics to fields of study
such as language variation and accent. A Critical Introduction to Phonetics
provides comprehensive coverage of all the key areas of the subject, and
contains chapter summaries to help the reader navigate the text. Critical
thinking is prompted throughout, and this will therefore be essential
reading for students on introductory phonetics courses both at
undergraduate and postgraduate level.
