Introducing Phonetics & Phonology

Lookup NU author(s): Dr SJ Hannahs


Full text is not currently available for this publication.


This second edition textbook -- revised and expanded from the 1998 first edition -- is intended for the absolute beginner who has no previous knowledge of either linguistics in general or phonetics and phonology in particular. The aim of the text is to serve as an introduction first to the speech sounds of human languages, that is phonetics, and second to the basic notions behind the organisation of the sound systems of human languages, that is phonology. It is not intended to be a complete guide to phonetics nor a handbook of current phonological theory. Rather, its purpose is to enable the reader to approach more advanced treatments of both topics. As such, it is primarily intended for students beginning degrees in linguistics and/or English language.
