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.

Book News Annotation:
