Retaining Ladefoged's student-friendly writing style, the Sixth Edition introduces concepts of speech production, describes speech in acoustic terms, and teaches practical phonetic skills including IPA transcription. Expanded sections on acoustic phonetics and speech motor control bring instructors up to date and help students use tools for digital inspection and manipulation of speech.
Numerous updates include MRI images of vocal tracts. The included CD-ROM contains over 4, audio files of nearly languages, as well as maps keyed to sounds of languages where they are spoken. The CD also contains material for every chapter, such as recordings of the tables, many examples, and the exercises.

This valuable and rich online resource offers web quizzes, key concepts, web links, key-term flashcards, chapter outlines, and audio files for topics including morphology, phonetics, syntax, language acquisition, writing systems, and sociolinguistics, among others. Retaining the trademark writing style and approach of previous editions, the Sixth Edition begins with technical terms required for describing speech and transcription symbols before moving on to the phonetics of English and other languages.
An up-to-date bonus CD-ROM contains more than 4, audio files--recordings of Englishes and non-English languages, maps keyed to sounds, audio versions of tables, and exercises in the text. Features The CD included with and keyed to the text has over 4, recordings of Englishes and other languages, maps of language areas, exercises and tables in the text, and so on.
Demonstrations of the phonetic performance exercises are provided, and most exercises can be downloaded and printed. Also includes recordings of British and American English for transcription exercises; speech samples for Southern U.
Extras on the CD include map indexes and recordings of the IPA chart sounds and many other languages. This text offers a broad overview of phonetics for students with no prior knowledge. Students will appreciate the clear introduction to main concepts of articulatory phonetics, which analyzes speech as a sequence of gestures of tongue, lips, and other vocal organs in combination with airflow.
Reviews "I haven't seen any texts that compare with Ladefoged's. New to this edition Keith Johnson, a leading phonetician, has revised the material on acoustic phonetics to incorporate developments in technology and research and offer students more opportunities to apply new knowledge.
Acoustic analysis is introduced in early chapters with spectrograms of English and non-English speech sounds so that students can use their high levels of computer literacy to perform analysis from the start. Images of MRIs and X-ray data have been added, providing students with more visual images of the articulatory organs tongue, velum, etc. The Sixth Edition features an extensively revised final chapter on linguistic phonetics to help students understand the relationship between phonetics and phonology, the principles of the IPA, and phonetics of the community vs.
The accompanying CD-ROM is updated to include new chapter exercises to coincide with those in the book, new sound files, and a more streamlined navigation and appearance. All of the sound files have also been converted to a more widely used format. Supplements All supplements have been updated in coordination with the Main title.
