A Course in Phonetics
Peter Ladefoged’s A COURSE IN PHONETICS remains the authoritative text for the study of phonetics. Retaining Ladefoged’s student-friendly writing style, the Sixth Edition introduces concepts of speech production, describes speech in acoustic terms, and teaches practical phonetic skills including IPA transcription. Expanded sections on acoustic phonetics and speech motor control bring instructors up to date and help students use tools for digital inspection and manipulation of speech. Numerous updates include MRI images of vocal tracts. The included CD-ROM contains over 4,000 audio files of nearly 100 languages, as well as maps keyed to sounds of languages where they are spoken. The CD also contains material for every chapter, such as recordings of the tables, many examples, and the exercises.
