Summary and Info
This is the textbook I have chosen for the English phonetics course I teach. The book covers all the aspects of English phonetics and phonology in an easy to follow style. An interesting feature of this book is Kreidles's approach to differences across dialects of English as viariations on the same theme. The book discusses all of the aspects of English phonology: segments (consonants and vowels), syllables, phonological processes (assimilation, elision, weak forms, etc), word stress, phrase stress and intonation. A summary and a discussion are found at the end of each chapter. There are also several exercises with key in the book which makes it suitable for self-study.
