Review quote

Review for previous edition: "Applied English Phonology is original and unique among books of its sort ... In addition to covering segmental phonetics, syllable structure, word stress and English intonation in a clear and accessible manner, it also incorporates an introduction to acoustic phonetics and to graphophonemics. I know of no other introduction to English phonetics and phonology which covers all of this ... A well-conceived, well-written and well-executed book." (Linguistics)show more
