Praise for Applied English Phonology

The go-to source for anyone seeking an authoritative,
practical perspective on the English sound system. Readers
will find it packed with accessible descriptions and
explanations accompanied by carefully selected examples and
exercises. A superb choice for a class text or reference book!

"A real gem. This volume is designed to ensure student
learning. It has everything: sound files, easy to follow
summaries, exercises and problems, a comprehensive
glossary, and extended readings. The most current theoretical
perspectives are not only represented, but accessible. It's
refreshing to come across a text that is as well packaged as
this one!" - Judith A. Gierut, Indiana University

An excellent textbook for an applied phonetics course in

TESOL or applied linguistics. Its transparent language and clear
explanations make it easily accessible to undergraduate and
graduate students doing work on various aspects of phonetics,
while it also serves as an excellent resource for instructors and
students in related fields.
