Abstract:

This book covers in a systematic way the main systems of phonetic
transcription currently used for English. Unlike other texts in the market,
which focus on just one type of transcriptional model, the book provides
theoretical information and full practice for all systems.

The material is divided into seven sections headed by a lengthy
introduction to the history and development of the International Phonetic
Alphabet. A set of eighteen samples from real contemporary colloquial
English (British English), graded in terms of difficulty, follows. The
accent chosen is the one known as RP or BBC English, with some minor
concession to other regional varieties which do not stray dramatically from
RP. Different models of representation are used under three main
transcription systems: qualitative, quantitative and mixed. By using an
identical set of texts in ordinary spelling for each system, the reader can
constantly check different ways of transcribing a word or an utterance
depending on the model used.

Contents: Phonetic transcription: History, definition and uses - The
International Phonetic Alphabet - Systems of phonetic transcription: their
typology - Transcription practice - Corpus of oral texts (18 excerpts,
ordinary spelling) - Transcription models.

Rafael Monroy-Casas obtained his first degree in English and French
Philology (Valencia University, 1971). In 1973, sponsored by a UNESCO
grant, he moved to the Department of Linguistics at Reading University
(UK), where he spent three years and took an MA in Linguistics. In 1978 he
was appointed to a Lectureship in English Language and Literature in
Murcia, setting up the Department of English Studies. In 1982, he was
appointed Professor of English Philology. He is currently teaching at
Murcia University.
