English Phonetics and Phonology Reviews


"Philip Carr's book provides an approachable overview of English sound structure, from consonant to and vowel articulation through phonemes, syllable structure and word stress to rhythm, connected speech and intonation. The excellent range of exercises will allow students to make steady progress from segment to sentence, while a final chapter and appendix provide a well-illustrated survey of accent variation."
