From the Back Cover:

Radio announcers have very few resources for learning to pronounce foreign words and names associated with classical music. In this innovative guide, Robert A. Fradkin provides the pronunciation of over 2,000 personal names (identified as composers, conductors, and/or performers), titles of works, and musical terms, including tempo and dynamics indications, genres, and dance forms. Fradkin explains the principles of pronunciation of about two dozen languages and provides clues for identifying the language of a strange word and making an educated guess at its pronunciation. He uses a variety of reader-friendly symbols and look-alikes to convey the sounds. The Well-Tempered Announcer is the ideal text for radio and television classes and the ultimate aid in the broadcasting booth.

About the Author:

ROBERT A. FRADKIN, Assistant Professor of Hebrew at the University of Maryland, College Park, has also taught Russian and general linguistics. He is author of Stalking the Wild Verb Phrase as well as scholarly articles in his academic fields.
