Query:   Dear colleagues,

On behalf of a student, I am looking for a phrasal-level guide to the sounds
of spoken English, preferably featuring an audio component on tape or CD.
There are many word-level guides of the type I am seeking, used by students
to practice the sounds of spoken English. (Several ESL teachers here at the
University of Idaho recommend the Newbury House dictionary, which features a
pronunciation CD.) However, these word-level pronunciation guides offer no
aid for such issues as sentence intonation and sandhi. Any suggestions
would be appreciated. I will post a summary to the list.
