An introduction to the fundamentals of linguistic phonetics filled with learning tools that focus on practical phonetic transcription skills.

Appropriate for both undergraduate and graduate students in the speech and hearing professions, this book focuses on teaching students the practical skills necessary to successfully perform phonetic transcription of individuals with speech sound disorders. Beginning with pertinent information on normal speech production, this introductory text then introduces students to the transcription of consonants and vowels, connected speech, and individuals with speech sound disorders. Students also learn the transcription of regional and ethnic dialectal variations of speech. Throughout the well-organized text, CD icons, learning exercises, objectives, and study questions help students learn and process the text’s material.

Critical topics associated with speech production such as word stress and transcription of disordered speech are sometimes difficult to grasp for introductory communication science and disorders students. The third edition of Fundamentals of Phonetics meets this challenge by offering readers a clear, welcoming, and practical introduction to phonetics that pairs easy-to-understand prose with an array of helpful learning tools and resources. While learning the fundamentals of speech mechanism anatomy, transcription of connected speech, clinical phonetics, and dialectical variation, students will benefit from learning objectives, extensive exercises with answers provided, a complete glossary of terms, and auditory samples (CD Set available separately) that make learning about phonetic transcription more manageable, systematic, and engaging.
