This volume is aimed at introductory level students of English
phonetics and phonology. Presupposing no previous knowledge of either
phonetics or phonology, it introduces the subject with a minimum of
technical terminology.

The student is introduced to articulatory phonetics and then to the
phonology of present day English. Topics covered include the phoneme,
the syllable, the foot, English word stress, accents of English, and
English intonation. Each chapter has end-of-chapter exercises,
designed to help the student apply the concepts introduced in the

English Phonetics and Phonology: an Introduction is ideal for students
who may not be majoring in Linguistics or as an introduction for
students who wish to take more advanced courses in English phonology
or phonological theory. It will also be useful to students and
teachers of English as a Foreign Language who have little or no
knowledge of English phonetics and phonology.
