Title: Introducing Phonetics and Phonology
Subtitle: Third Edition
Written By: Mike Davenport
S. J. Hannahs
Series Title: A Hodder Arnold Publication

Please Note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

This edition begins with an examination of the foundations of articulatory and
acoustic phonetics, moves on to the basic principles of phonology, and ends
with an outline of some further issues within contemporary phonology. Varieties
of English, particularly Received Pronunciation and General American, form the
focus of consideration, but aspects of the phonetics and phonology of other
languages are discussed as well.

This new edition includes more discussion of Optimality Theory and a new
glossary of terms. It has been updated throughout to take account of the latest
developments in phonological theory, but without sacrificing the book's ease of
use for beginners.
