'American English Pronunciation: A Drillbook' is designed to accompany lecture courses on American English phonetics and language laboratory classes in American English pronunciation at university level. It is equally suitable as a self-instructional program for anyone wishing to improve their American English pronunciation. Part I (Pronunciation Practice) provides pronunciation exercises to be used in conjunction with additional audio material (available on request) or following the model of a native speaker. Part II (Transcription Practice) presents model texts for phonetic transcription. In both parts, orthographic text and phonetic script appear on facing pages. Several phonetic puzzles are also included.
