Index

“A key general-reference text, which assumes no prior knowledge. In this edition, emphasis is placed on acoustic phonetics and phonological analysis, and it incorporates new material on developments in speech production studies, prosody, optimality theory in phonology, L1 and L2 acquisition and sociolectal variation.” Times Higher Education Supplement

“The third edition of An Introduction to Phonetics and Phonology is a welcome update to an introductory volume which for many years has informed and challenged students in equal measures, and will clearly continue to do so.”
Gerry Docherty, University of Newcastle upon Tyne
