Title: The Sounds of German
Written By: Charles V. J. Russ
Description:

How are the sounds of German produced? How do German speakers stress their
words? How have the sounds of German developed over time? This book
provides a clear introduction to the sounds of German, designed
particularly for English-speaking students of the language. Topics covered
include the role of the organs of speech, the state of the vocal cords and
the differences between vowels and consonants. The articulation,
distribution, spelling and the major variants of each sound are examined in
detail. The book also discusses the regional differences between dialects
and between the national standard varieties in Germany, Austria and
Switzerland. Students are encouraged to put theory into practice with end
of chapter questions. Setting a solid foundation in the description and
analysis of German sounds, The Sounds of German will help students improve
their pronunciation of the language by introducing them to the basics of
its sound system.
