Title: An Introduction to English Phonology
Written By: April McMahon
Description:

This is a short, lively, and accessible introduction to the sounds of modern English. Its emphasis on variation, with examples from
British, American, New Zealand, and Singaporean English, make it suitable for both native and non-native speakers. McMahon focuses on the vowels and consonants, but also discusses syllables, stress, and the phonology of words and phrases. She introduces new tools and terminology gradually, and discusses the motivation for key concepts.
