Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Guide to the Phonetic Symbols of Spanish
Written By: Timothy L Face

Guide to the Phonetic Symbols of Spanish presents the many phonetic symbols
and symbol systems that linguists have used for the sounds of Spanish. More
than 450 clear entries for symbols and diacritics describe their meanings
in the RFE, IPA, and American systems, as well as less common and
unconventional uses. The book includes an overview of the Spanish sound
system and a helpful glossary of phonetic terms. Guide to the Phonetic
Symbols of Spanish will prove invaluable for scholars and students of
Spanish phonetics and phonology, and a necessary resource for linguists who
encounter the abundance of phonetic symbols used for Spanish.
