Understand the foundations of English sounds and how it relates to transcribing speech phonetically.

From the Back Cover:

Understanding how sounds form—and how sounds combine to create words— is imperative to learning how to transcribe speech phonetically. A Phonetics Workbook for Students by Heidi Harbers prepares students to transcribe speech phonetically by helping them become aware of the sounds of English phonology. Following a systematic, learning-friendly organization, chapters progress from awareness of sounds, to articulatory phonetics and IPA symbols, to transcription. Unlike other workbooks, its exercises are varied and challenging and develop both foundational and critical thinking skills.

 

Features:
  • Unique "meta" approach keeps students actively involved as they get reacquainted with the sounds of the English language.
  • Early emphasis on sound awareness lays the foundation for a more complete understanding of the English language and how to transcribe speech phonetically.
  • Progressive organization sequences chapters in a learning-friendly format that transitions from awareness of sounds, to articulatory phonetics and IPA symbols, to transcription.
  • Review and practice chapters (Chapters 4, 12, and 20) summarize key information from each unit and help students solidify concepts before learning more.
  • Consonants presented by manner class (Chapters 14-19)  provide an organizational framework to assist students in learning the similarities and differences between sounds.
  • Thoughts to Ponder questions encourage readers to think about the English sound system and reflect upon its complexities.
  • Words of Advice learning strategies model metacognition and assist students in becoming successful, self-directed learners.
  • Extensive chapter exercises balance challenge and variety, while developing foundational and critical thinking skills.
  • Specific exercises for practicing morphophonemic changes assist students in understanding the relationship between stress, morphemes, and phonemes (Chapter 21).
