My request for texts featuring phrase-level pronunciation guides did not
produce many responses. Special thanks to Johannes Reese and Bill Wells.
According to Bill Wells< firstname.lastname@example.org >, "When I taught TEFL in the
early 80's I found some excellent ( I thought) materials published by
Cambridge University Press, that covered connected speech. I think the
author was Colin Mortimer."
Colin Mortimer's book is still available from Cambridge. The Cambridge
website < www.cup.org > lists it as:
Elements of Pronunciation
Intensive practice of aspects of English pronunciation is provided
through a collection of witty
dialogues that concentrate on stress timing, weak forms, contractions,
consonant clusters and linking words.
The same web site also features:
Better English Pronunciation
O'Connor, J. D.
A pronunciation manual for intermediate to advanced students of English
phonetic transcription. The text treats each sound separately, and then
then covers words
in combination, as well as rhythm patterns and intonation.
Pronunciation and Listening Comprehension in North American English
Gilbert, Judy B.
Clear Speech, 2nd Edition, is a revised and expanded edition of a
highly successful and
innovative pronunciation course for intermediate and advanced students
of English. As in
the first edition, the emphasis is on the "musical" aspects of English:
rhythm, stress, and intonation.
A further web search turned up the following:

Sounds, Stress, and Intonation, Second Edition
Gertrude F. Orion

I have not seen any of these books yet, so if anyone has further information
on any of them, I would be pleased to hear from you.
