Title: Introducing Phonetic Science
Written By: JohnAMaidment
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521808828
Series Title: Cambridge Introductions to Language and Linguistics
Description:

This accessible new textbook provides a clear and practical introduction to
phonetics, the study of speech. Assuming no prior knowledge of the topic,
it introduces students to the fundamental concepts in phonetic science, and
equips them with the essential skills needed for recognizing, describing
and transcribing a range of speech sounds. Numerous graded exercises enable
students to put these skills into practice, and the sounds introduced are
clearly illustrated with examples from a variety of English accents and
other languages. As well as looking at traditional articulatory
description, the book introduces acoustic and other instrumental techniques
for analysing speech, and covers topics such as speech and writing, the
nature of transcription, hearing and speech perception, linguistic
universals, and the basic concepts of phonology. Providing a solid
foundation in phonetics, Introducing Phonetic Science will be invaluable to
all students beginning courses in linguistics, speech sciences, language
pathology and language therapy. Further exercises will be available on an
accompanying website.
