A complete basic course in English phonetics and phonology which combines academic material with practical exercises, both written and recorded. Since the publication of the first edition in 1983, this course has established itself as the most practical, comprehensive text in the field and become widely used in many parts of the world in universities and other institutions of higher education. It is used by both native and non-native speakers alike, and is suitable for those training to teach English as well as those studying the language at an advanced level. This new edition takes into account recent developments in the teaching of phonology. It includes updated references, fuller coverage of intonation, and a new chapter on different varieties of English with illustrative recorded material. English Phonetics and Phonology bridges the gap between simple pronunciation handbooks and technical phonetics and phonology textbooks. It presents the basic factual material and crucial theoretical issues in a practical and readable way. At the end of each chapter there are notes giving information on further reading, discussion of the more challenging issues, written exercises and, where appropriate, suggestions for teachers. In addition the audio CDs include recorded exercises for every chapter which are particularly helpful for non-native speakers. A full answer key is available at the back of the book. Additional exercises and other supporting material are available online.

Highlighting some interesting and intriguing aspects of English phonetics and phonology from a variety of perspectives, this book brings up a number of empirical questions in order to emphasize the necessity of taking a very broad view of what spoken English means in today's socio-cultural context. English has become a truly global means of communication, used as a first, second, or additional language by millions and millions of diverse speakers, in a multitude of different communicative contexts, so that the very notions of native and non-native seem to have changed profoundly, as have the notions of central/ peripheral and standard/ non-standard with regard to English varieties spoken around the globe. Therefore, today more than ever before, in studying English phonetics many small research steps need to be taken to provide diverse and broad empirical data from as many different standpoints as possible. This collection indeed looks at English phonetics from a wide spectrum of perspectives, including those of native or EFL speakers, language varieties, L2 language teaching and learning, as well as language contact, development, and change.

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 2,0, University of Würzburg, language: English, abstract: This seminar paper will be about the phonemic transcription of an excerpt from an online article from the Huffington Post. The subject is Willem-Alexander’s first visit to Germany after his investiture as King of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The phonemic or broad transcription will be based on the Cambridge English Pronouncing Dictionary by Daniel Jones (2011). After the transcription, some differences between Received Pronunciation (RP) and General American (GA) will be shown on the basis of some examples from the text. The second part of this seminar paper will broach the issue of different phonological phenomena given in the text. This theoretical part of the written seminar paper will deal, first of all, with the allophones clear [l] and dark [ɫ], then the so called “happY-Tensing” will be presented, afterwards this paper will deal with the syllabic consonants and at last a distinction of so-called strong and weak forms will be given.
