5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent practical book to help people understand their sound production systems, 27 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Practical Introduction to Phonetics (Oxford Textbooks in Linguistics) (Paperback)
I would highly recommend that any teacher of any foreign language read this book. It is a genuinely practical book which teaches the reader more about how we function when we speak than any other phonetics book I have ever read.

The author never goes off into fuzzy theoretical descriptions, but always stays with his learners and carries them through the process of getting their own sound production system working in all sorts of unexpected ways. I discovered muscles I never know I had.

My only regret is that Catford didn't write it years earlier. It is exactly the book I would have liked to own when I studied phonetics.

Beautifully written, clear and concise, a real treat for anyone interested in the field of phonetics.

Thank you, Mr Catford, for an excellent book.
