Praise for the Third Edition Practical Phonetics and Phonology keeps getting better! Our undergraduate students already valued its accessibility, clarity of description and detailed coverage of English accents. The addition of further descriptions of languages other than English and in-depth discussion of issues in pronunciation teaching make the book highly recommended reading for our postgraduate students in linguistics and English language teaching, too. Leendert Plug, University of Leeds, UK Students often ask me for books about phonetics and phonology, and Practical Phonetics and Phonology is the first that I recommend. It is an excellent combination of theory and practice, with abundant resources and practice material both written and spoken, covering a large number of English accents and including outlines of some major languages. Presented in direct and easy-to-follow language, with first-rate diagrams and illustrations, it allows readers to study the subject as if they were attending a series of interesting lectures. This new edition is going to be a 'must' for all students of phonetics and phonology. Masaki Taniguchi, Kochi University, Japan I liked the second edition and I like the third even more. The book is carefully planned, diligently structured and clearly written. The contents are up-to-date; they are geared to the needs of newcomers to phonetics and phonology. There is a strong emphasis on the practical side: the reader's understanding is tested repeatedly throughout the book with more than 120 activities. Many sound samples are provided for close listening and analysis. A highly recommendable book! Petr Rosel, University of Mainz, Germany Praise for the Second Edition '...one of the most successful introductory texts in the field, as it manages an ongoing seamless combination of phonetic and phonological theory and areas of practical application. As a textbook it covers a vast amount of material, but is consistently successful in presenting only what is immediately relevant for the undergraduate/ EFL level it is aimed at.'-- Linguist List, 2008 'I have used the first edition of Practical Phonetics and Phonology in my teaching with great success -- my students were very enthusiastic about it. So I am delighted to welcome this second edition, which contains many additional goodies.' John Wells, Emeritus Professor of Phonetics, UCL, UK 'An impressive combination of academic research and educational applications. The invaluable and updated resource for the students of phonetics and phonology.' Masanori Toyota, Kansai Gaidai University, Osaka, Japan Praise for the First Edition '...gathers together a far wider range of topics than other books on English phonetics. Many more accents of English are discussed, and we really learn about English as a world language. Experienced teachers of English and beginning students will all profit from this book.' Peter Ladefoged, University of California, USA
