Subject: A Course in Phonetics

The third edition of my textbook "A Course in Phonetics" Harcourt
Brace Jovanovich, 1993 (sic), has just been published. Unfortunately
there are about 20 significant errors, and a further 40 or so other
errors already known to me. Nearly all of them were printer's errors or
changes that occurred after I had been through the final proof (a
horror story you do not want to know). Harcourt Brace Jovanovich
are currently putting out a second, revised, printing. If you want a
list of the errors, and a copy of my letter to the publisher, please write
to me:

Peter Ladefoged, Linguistics Department, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA

I regret that I cannot send these corrections e-mail, even by ftp, as there
are too many symbols involved, some in fonts that I have made
myself. If you e-mail a request, please do not forget to note your
postal address.

Many apologies ( and Harcourt Brace Jovanovich should also be
offering theirs).
Peter Ladefoged
