Fundamentals of Phonetics is a clear, systematic, easy-to-understand introduction to phonetics principles and transcription. It uses in-text exercises to teach the practical skills necessary to successfully perform phonetic transcription of individuals using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). You'll learn about the transcription of consonants and vowels, connected speech and individuals with speech sound disorders. A chapter on speech acoustics introduces spectrograms and the acoustic characteristics of speech sounds. You'll also learn how to transcribe individuals who display regional and ethnic dialectal variation of speech, including those who have learned to speak English as a second language.
The 5th Edition is updated with current census data, new material on key concepts in phonetic transcription and a new section on the application of speech acoustics in clinical practice. Pedagogical aids (including new chapter summaries, learning objectives, exercises and artwork) help you learn, process and practice the material.
