Asssuming no prior knowledge of the subject, this book offers a thorough introduction to phonetics and phonology. It is unusually comprehensive, including detailed attention to articulatory and acoustic phonetics as well as to the foundations of phonological analysis.
The second edition of this hughly successful textbook incorporates several improvements: a completely new chapter on speech perception has been added, the material on anaotomy and physiology has been rearranged and much of the detail placed later in the book to make it less demanding on readers, and the entire text has been edited to help bring it up to date.

A superlative introduction to phonetics and phonology, this fully revised third edition is a singularly comprehensive text that familiarizes the reader with detailed knowledge of articulatory and acoustic phonetics, as well as the foundations of phonological analysis. The new edition features a number of valuable changes, incorporating material on the latest findings in speech production studies; greater coverage of prosody, including a major section on autosegmental metrical models; expanded coverage of phonology, including a section on constraint-based theories, such as Optimality Theory; and sections on L1 and L2 acquisition, and sociolectal variation. By integrating new findings and theories as well as updating references, the third edition of An Introduction to Phonetics and Phonology offers readers the most thorough and complete knowledge of the subject to date.About the Author:
