Title: Australian English Pronunciation and Transcription
Written By: Felicity Cox
Description:

"Australian English Pronunciation and Transcription" is the first textbook to
clearly describe the speech of Australians. This groundbreaking work addresses
Australian English pronunciation characteristics, and provides detailed
instruction in both phonetic and phonemic transcription of the dialect. Through
comprehensive coverage of traditional and revised systems of phonemic
transcription, "Australian English Pronunciation and Transcription" offers an
astute and engaging exploration of one of the core global dialects of English.

"Australian English Pronunciation and Transcription" is complemented by an
extensive Website which provides further explanatory materials and exercises
with audio examples. This unique text, in tandem with these valuable
pedagogical features, is an essential resource for students and teachers of
linguistics, speech pathology and language education.
