Title: English Phonetics and Phonology
Subtitle: A Practical Course
Written By: PeterJRoach
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521797985
Description:

This is a complete basic course in English phonetics and phonology. Since its publication it has established itself as the most practical and comprehensive text in the field. It is used by both native and non-native speakers, who may be training to teach English or studying the language at an advanced level. The new edition takes into account recent developments on the teaching of phonology, and a number of improvements have been made in response to feedback from users world wide. English Phonetics and Phonology bridges the gap between simple pronunciation handbooks and technical phonetics and phonology textbooks. The chapters are cross-referenced to the recordings which consist of practical exercises on two cassettes or CDs. At the end of each chapter there are notes giving information on further reading, discussion of difficult issues and, where appropriate, suggestions for teachers.
