This practical introduction to linguistic phonetics focuses on teaching students the skills necessary for expert phonetic transcription of individuals with disordered speech. Through an abundance of exercises and available recordings, this text makes the learning of phonetics clear, systematic, and easy. The auditory examples make it easy for instructors to describe and explain dialects and easy for students to understand difficult topics associated with speech production - such as word stress and producing certain speech sounds. This text emphasizes issues tied to linguistic phonetics with an introduction to clinical phonetics, and issues involving dialectal variation of speech, a topic missing (or dated) in other texts.
Focusing on teaching the ability to transcribe spoken language for introductory phonetics courses, this textbook discusses the problems of using the Roman alphabet to transcribe English, the anatomical structures used in producing spoken language, and other topics. The CD-ROM contains audio files of examples, oral discussions, and review exercises from the book. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
