Applied English Phonology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Applied English Phonology responds to the need for a practical and accessible source on applied phonology for students from applied linguistics, TESOL, and speech pathology programs who need to be well equipped in applied English phonology for the remedial teaching of English and/or accent reduction. The book covers the fundamental aspects of the English sound system including basic phonetic elements; phonemics; allophonic rules of English consonants and vowels; phonotactics; and stress and intonation.

Unique features of the text include a chapter on the acoustics of English sounds, and short units presenting phonological data from ten languages in contrast with English to provide practitioners with invaluable insights into remediation. All chapters have extensive exercises to aid the reader in understanding and assimilating the material more effectively.

An Answer Key is available for instructors at http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/yavas.
