View all copies of this ISBN edition:

A manual primarily for investigators and teachers of English phonetics, but it could be helpful to theoreticians. The focus is on transcriptional procedures. The author's original design was Southern British pronunciation, but he has since adapted this to the needs of a broader readership.
