Title: Pronunciation of Norwegian
Written By: R. G. Popperwell

Description:

New Edition

In this volume, first published in 1963, Cambridge lecturer R. G. Popperwell
provides a fascinating and highly accessible guide to the correct
pronunciation of Norwegian. In a text rich with examples and useful
explanations, Popperwell introduces the reader to the intricacies of the
Norwegian spoken in both Oslo specifically, and eastern Norway in general.
Following an introductory chapter which looks at the organs of speech and
their constitution, Popperwell talks the reader through the pronunciation of
Norwegian vowels and diphthongs before furnishing them with the knowledge
required to turn an understanding of written Norwegian into a successful
cognition of the way the language is spoken. Popperwell writes on the
syllabic qualities of the language, the stresses most regularly used and the
rhythmic qualities of spoken Norwegian. This book is both thorough and
engaging, and will be of great use to any student of the Norwegian language.
