Series Title: A Hodder Education Publication
Description:

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

Assuming little or no background knowledge and using original examples
and exercises (with answers supplied), Understanding Phonetics provides
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.

Examples from a wide range of languages are presented throughout using
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,
at www.hodderplus.com/linguistics.
