DESCRIPTION

Peter Ladefoged's A COURSE IN PHONETICS is the hallmark text for the study of linquistics. Retaining the trademark writing style and approach of previous editions, the Fifth Edition begins with technical terms required for describing speech and transcription symbols before moving on to the phonetics of English and other languages. An exciting bonus CD-ROM contains more than 4,000 audio files, including recordings of speech from southern and northern U.S. cities, London, Edinburgh, Dublin, New Zealand, other forms of English, and scores of other languages.
