This book introduces readers to the sounds of spoken English, covering phonetic representation and showing that different forms of representation supply different perspectives on data. The volume also provides an overview of the vocal tract and works through the consonant and vowel sounds of English.
Since English can assume a diverse range of forms, this book gives readers a general phonetic framework to apply to this variety, with illustrations taken from English-speakers across the world. Naturally-occurring English takes a central role, and while words are seen as important, they are not the only source of data. Sounds like clicks are included, because of their use in conversation.
