Assuming little or no background knowledge and using original examples

with an accessible introduction to the basics of phonetics and a
comprehensive analysis of traditional phonetic theory--the articulation and
physical characteristics of speech sounds.

symbols of the International Phonetic Alphabet. To help develop skills in this
alphabet, Understanding Phonetics includes ear-training exercises that are
freely available online, along with audio files of authentic listening material,
