Title: Introductory Phonetics and Phonology of English
Written By: Iyabode Omolara Daniel
Description:

"Introductory Phonetics and Phonology of English" attempts to give a
practical guide to the learner in all ramifications of theoretical and
practical uses of the phonetics and phonology of the English language.
Useful suggestions and tips were also given on how to do it yourself to
overcome the terror of the sounds of English. An attempt was also made to
give detailed information on the workings of the prosodic features of
English. This was especially necessary, as they remain, largely, the most
confounding aspect of the English language to the average Nigerian speaker
of English.

The distinctive phonological features of the English sounds were also
painstakingly discussed to help make the identification and description of
the sounds of English even more interesting and accessible. The discussion
on the phonological tendencies of the sounds of the English language is
meant to help the reader see the English sounds as functional entities that
go beyond the theoretical descriptions of their articulatory processes in
the classroom.

This book thus serves as a useful introductory text. If the success of the
first edition is anything to go by, it is obvious that many students at
both undergraduate and postgraduate levels have found the book a helpful
guide into understanding and mastering the phonetics and phonology of
English. Moreover, certificate class students of the secondary school level
have also found the many segmental and suprasegmental examples very
practical and helpful to their mastery of the English phonetics.
