Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Applied English Phonology is original and unique among books of its sort … In addition to covering segmental phonetics, syllable structure, word stress and English intonation in a clear and accessible manner, it also incorporates an introduction to acoustic phonetics and to graphophonemics. I know of no other introduction to English phonetics and phonology which covers all of this … A well-conceived, well-written and well-executed book.” Linguistics

"A detailed description of English phonetics and phonology that can be easily understood by those with no prior training in linguistics. This volume provides excellent background information for teachers of ESL/EFL." Roy Major, Arizona State University

"Written in an accessible format, Applied English Phonology combines foundational information on phonetics and phonology with their relation to practical application. This volume makes an outstanding contribution to the field of applied phonology and will be a welcome addition to practitioners in a variety of professions." Brian Goldstein, Temple University
