Overview

Introduction to Phonetics and Phonology: From Concepts to Transcription provides readers with a basic foundation in both phonetics and phonology. The book has two goals: the first is to connect phonetics and phonology into a conceptual unity and the second is to demonstrate the practical relevance of phonetics, phonology, and phonetic transcription for beginning students in communication disorders and related disciplines, such as linguistics or education.

Written with an abundance of real-life examples, this first edition provides readers with a large base of information, from the basic definitions of phonetics and phonology to their practical, clinical applications when analyzing speech samples. The text's uniqueness lies in how it connects the various concepts with practical examples. This helps students to solidify what they are learning and understand its relevance to clinical practice.

Highlights of this New Text…

  • Unique to this text — A chapter on Phonological development explains the development of speech in children using three theoretical models, one of which is a contemporary model emphasizing nonlinear phonologies.
  • A separate set of DVDs are available containing both audio and video resources for practice in transcription. This DVD set can be purchased using ISBN: 0-205-40285-2. Receive a 10% discount on both the text and the DVD set by using this special package ISBN: 0-205-62715-3
  • Case studies at the beginning of each chapter highlight specific concepts of that particular chapter. The case study is then revisited throughout the chapter, demonstrating how the information could be applied in a real-life situation.
  • Extensive learning aids are provided in the form of focus questions, concept exercises, further readings, key terms, critical thinking questions, and multiple choice questions.
  • A thorough discussion of dialect, whichincludes definitions and examples of regional dialects, ethnic dialects, and foreign dialects.
  • A chapter in which the core information presented for phonetics and phonology is integrated into a series of case studies which apply this knowledge to the analysis of speech. Examples include the analysis of regional dialects, emerging phonology, and a child with disordered articulation.
  • Phonetic transcription workbook is included as an additional study aid as Part II of the textbook. This workbook guides students through a systematic learning process beginning with the identification of sounds within words, to transcribing multisyllabic words and short phrases.

"Well on its way to becoming one of the premier textbooks on introductory phonetics (and phonology). I like it better than the texts I'm currently using." -Michael Blomgren, University of Utah
