Overview

Applied Phonetics is the only comprehensive, systematic, and classroom tested approach to understanding phonetics and phonetic transcription currently available. Applied Phonetics is divided into two distinct learning units to aid in student comprehension. The first section provides an introduction to the field of phonetics and the second provides a complete overview of each of the sounds of American English making this textbook a reference users will use in their practice well after the course is completed. The final chapter covers the prosodic elements of speech, a topic frequently omitted from standard phonetic textbooks. A companion workbook, which contains additional practice for transcribing dialect differences, also contains audio CDs with additional transcription exercises recorded by four speakers of American English.
