The second edition of this distinguished textbook introduces undergraduates to the concepts, terminology and representations needed for an understanding of how English is pronounced around the world.

Assuming no prior knowledge, it guides the reader through the vocal tract and explains how the sounds of speech are made, offering an accessible introduction to areas including transcription, vowels and acoustic analysis. The book also includes a new concluding chapter that works through a piece of spoken data to show the reader how a more complete phonetic analysis can be conducted.

Key features

* Focuses on phonetics as a skill and encourages the reader to reflect on own speech

* Covers a range of forms of phonetic representation

* Each chapter contains a summary, exercises and further reading
