Critical topics associated with speech production such as word stress and transcription of disordered speech are sometimes difficult to grasp for introductory communication science and disorders students. The third edition of Fundamentals of Phonetics meets this challenge by offering readers a clear, welcoming, and practical introduction to phonetics that pairs easy-to-understand prose with an array of helpful learning tools and resources. While learning the fundamentals of speech mechanism anatomy, transcription of connected speech, clinical phonetics, and dialectical variation, students will benefit from learning objectives, extensive exercises with answers provided, a complete glossary of terms, and auditory samples (CD Set available separately) that make learning about phonetic transcription more manageable, systematic, and engaging.
