Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Introducing Phonetics and Phonology
Written By: Mike Davenport
S. J. Hannahs

This book provides a basic introduction to the fundamental concepts on
phonetics and phonology, the foundation of most courses in linguistics. The
reader is introduced first to articulatory and acoustic phonetics, and then
follows a smooth progression in sections on phonology. The book highlights
throughout the links between the two subjects and each chapter ends with a
set of exercises and suggestions for further reading. The primary source of
data is from both General American and Received Pronunciation.
