Blackwell Textbooks in Linguistics #9: An Introduction to Phonetics and Phonology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now available in a fully revised third edition, this comprehensive introduction to phonetics and phonology familiarizes the reader with detailed knowledge of articulatory and acoustic phonetics as well as the foundations of phonological analysis. Featuring numerous figures throughout, it assumes no prior knowledge of the subject.

The new edition contains a number of valuable changes, including:

  • Updated chapters on the anatomy, physiology, and acoustics of speech production, which include recent research findings

  • A thorough revision of the chapter on speech perception

  • An expanded chapter on prosody, including a major section on autosegmental-metrical models of intonation

  • Additional material on theoretical phonology, including a new section on constraint-based theories, including Optimality Theory.

Integrating new findings, theories, and references, the third edition of An Introduction to Phonetics and Phonologyis the most thorough and complete resource on the subject to date.

Synopsis:

Asssuming no prior knowledge of the subject, this book offers a thorough introduction to phonetics and phonology. It is unusually comprehensive, including detailed attention to articulatory and acoustic phonetics as well as to the foundations of phonological analysis.

The second edition of this hughly successful textbook incorporates several improvements: a completely new chapter on speech perception has been added, the material on anaotomy and physiology has been rearranged and much of the detail placed later in the book to make it less demanding on readers, and the entire text has been edited to help bring it up to date.
