9780340582657: GIMSON'S PRONUNCIATION OF ENGLISH 5TH EDITION HARDBACK

This book is the standard reference book on English pronunciation. First published in 1962, its scope and authority have never been rivaled. This fifth edition is the most comprehensively revised edition to date. The book's treatment of world Englishes, especially American English, has been expanded, increasing its international appeal. The content has been thoroughly revised and extended, in particular the sections on language teaching and the measurement of sounds. The reviser, Alan Cruttenden, is a well known phonetician who studied with Gimson at University College, London.

Alan Cruttenden, Reader in Phonetics, University of Manchester.

Review:

"What we have now is a third and better
than ever re-casting, rewriting, amplification and extensive updating
which is actually a very considerable improvement on the original
amounting to full co-authorship ...
The overall impression of the text is that the
graphics are better than ever (for example there are now thirty vowel
diagrams all either new or re-drawn) and the general styling of the
text is more user-friendly than ever. There can be no doubt that this
book is still the most indispensable account of British English
phonetics in existence."
