Abstract:

This book applies the principles of Natural Phonetics & Tonetics to describe the pronunciation of Italian, including intonation, in a precise way never found in earlier treatises. It includes an introduction to the Natural Phonotonetics Method, which can be used for any other language, as well (without the sadly known limitations of official IPA).

The vowels, consonants, structures, and intonation of Italian are fully described and transcribed, with many examples of words, sentences, and conversations, in addition to the intonationally integrated IPA sample passage ‘The North Wind and the Sun’.

Six chapters provide transcriptions for the vowels, consonants, gemination, and intonation, including several literary texts. Different types of Italian pronunciation are fully described (with clear phonic maps): international, neutral, traditional, mediatic. 22 regional accents are also fully described, with many internal variants. Almost 45 foreign accents, 26 languages, and 33 Italian traditional dialects are presented concisely, but accurately. Latin is also fully described, including concise diachronic stages.
