Om boka

British English Phonetic Transcription provides an accessible introduction to phonemic, phonetic and intonational transcription with a focus on British English. Featuring exercises, revision tasks and recordings to help students gain hands-on practice, the book takes a learning-by-doing approach and ensures students gain practice using each new symbol or concept introduced before moving on to the next. Consisting of three parts, the book covers:











transcribing individual words, including consonants, vowels, primary stress, secondary stress, syllabic consonants and inflections;







transcribing phrases and sentences, including liaison, weak forms, elision and assimilation;







transcribing intonation, including the structure of English intonation and recognising pitch patterns.








Ideally suited as a standalone workbook or for use alongside American English Phonetic Transcription, British English Phonetic Transcription is key reading for undergraduate students of linguistics as well as anyone teaching or learning English as a foreign language.
