Title: The Phonetics of English and Dutch
Subtitle: Fifth Revised Edition
Written By: BeverleySCollins
IngerM.Mees
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=25137
Description:

This book provides a complete introductory course on the phonetics of
English and Dutch based on an essentially practical approach to the
subject. No previous knowledge of phonetics is assumed and all terms are
explained in straightforward English as they are introduced. Theoretical
and practical aspects of the subject are clarified for the student by means
of numerous self-study exercises in articulation and transcription.
The book contains a detailed contrastive description of British RP English
and of Dutch (in both the Netherlands and Belgian standard varieties). In
addition to a full description of the individual vowels and consonants,
full attention is paid to features of connected speech, e.g. intonation,
assimilation and elision, stress and articulatory setting. There are
sections on sound-spelling relationships in English and an analysis of the
commonest pronunciations errors in the English of Dutch-speakers. A guide
to the technique of phonemic transcription is also provided, with numerous
transcription passages for which correction keys are available.
One chapter is devoted to differences between British and American
pronunciation. Another section provides a survey of a range of British
regional accents (e.g. Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Northern, London, Midlands,
West Country).

Now available with corrections incorporating the reactions of Dutch and
Belgian users.
