Abstract:

This book introduces undergraduates to the concepts, terminology and
representations needed for an understanding of how English is pronounced
around the world. Assuming no prior knowledge, the book guides readers
through the vocal tract and explains how sounds of speech are made. Two
main forms of representation are used: phonetic transcription and simple
acoustic data. As far as possible, the book is based on
naturally-occurring, conversational speech so that readers are familiar
with the details of everyday talk (and not just the careful pronunciations
represented in dictionaries).

Examples are taken from around the English-speaking world, including North
America, Australia, New Zealand and varieties of British English.
Introductory chapters cover the basic phonetic framework, while later
chapters discuss groups of sounds in more detail. The book takes an
open-minded approach to what sounds of English might be significant for
making meaning, and highlights the significance of word meaning,
morphology, sociolinguistics and conversational interaction in phonetic
analysis

Features:

*Introductory text assuming no prior knowledge of phonetics
*Informed by up to date research on naturally occurring conversational English
*Focuses on phonetics as a skill and encourages the reader to reflect on
their own speech
*Covers a range of forms of phonetic representation.
