Overview

"This popular and accessible introduction to phonetics is now available in a fully updated second edition. Peter Ladefoged describes how languages use a variety of different sounds, many of them quite unlike any that occur in well-known languages." This revised edition includes a new chapter on how we listen to speech and the greatly expanded CD now contains data on a hundred languages to reinforce learning and bring the descriptions to life.

From the Publisher
“The book is of interest to teachers and would help to develop readers' perception of speech production and their competence in spoken English. It is a 'must have' book that adds richness and knowledge to individuals and libraries.” (Linguist, 31 October 2012)
