Product Description


The book is of interest to teachers and would help to develop readers′ perception of speech production and their competence in spoken English. It is a ′must have′ book that adds richness and knowledge to individuals and libraries.   (Linguist, 31 October 2012)


This book conveys an amazing range of current science, including phonetics, psycholinguistics, and speech technology, while being engaging and accessible for novices.  This edition maintains Ladefoged′s friendly, enthusiastic style while adding important updates. –  Natasha Warner, University of Arizona

Praise from the previous edition:

This is a fascinating, accessible, and reader–friendly book by a master phonetician, about how speech sounds are made, and how they can be analyzed. I warmly recommend the book to everyone with an interest, professional or otherwise, in spoken language. – John Laver, Queen Margaret University College

Simple, easy to understand linguistic anthropology text book. Peter Ladefoged did a great job in explaining all about language and it's acoustics.

There really isn't much to be said other than it's really the best text for its area. The book was in great condition as well
