    This volume is aimed at introductory level students of English phonetics and phonology. Presupposing no previous knowledge of either phonetics or phonology, it introduces the subject with a minimum of technical terminology.

    The student is introduced to articulatory phonetics and then to the phonology of present day English. Topics covered include the phoneme, the syllable, the foot, English word stress, accents of English, and English intonation. Each chapter has end-of-chapter exercises, designed to help the student apply the concepts introduced in the chapter.

    English Phonetics and Phonology: an Introduction is ideal for students who may not be majoring in Linguistics or as an introduction for students who wish to take more advanced courses in English phonology or phonological theory. It will also be useful to students and teachers of English as a Foreign Language who have little or no knowledge of English phonetics and phonology.
