A Practical Introduction to Phonetics - J. C. Catford

Carford starts with a fairly detailed sketch of the voice apparatus and processes that play a part in voice production. That creates a baseline which the author then uses to tell us about different sounds we utter. Their complexity grows with each chapter which gives Carford an opportunity to introduce new theoretical elements without getting us bogged down with too much theory at once. Systematic exploration of the entire range of human sounds, with a separate chapter on sound systems Second edition includes revisions and additions to the text, and revisions to 5 figures, to clarify the points madeOver 120 experiments enable readers to understand the basic principles of phonetics more effectively by experimenting with their own vocal tracts Now in a new edition, this unique interactive introduction to the study of phonetics shows students how to examine the entire range of human sounds through a series of 124 introspective experiments carried out in their own vocal tracts. It systematically covers all types of speech modification (breath, voice, whisper, creak), articulation (the ways in which the air stream is finally modulated to generate specific types of sound), and prosodic features (stress, syllable, tone, intonation). This text also includes a chapter on sound systems--the ways in which particular languages utilize and systematize the universal sound-producing potential of humans. By actually articulating sounds and attending to the motor sensations they produce, readers acquire a deep, personal Forgotten the title or the author of a book?

proceeding systematically from familiar vocal postures and articulations to new and unknown ones. By actually articulating sounds, and attending to the motor sensations they produce, the reader acquires a deep, personal understanding of the principles of phonetic classification. InformedThis book is an introduction to practical phonetics, that is, to the description and classification of the sounds of speech. The book's unique approach leads readers to explore the entire range of human sounds by a series of introspective experiments carried out in their own vocal tracts. This highly practical exploration of the subject is informed throughout by recent research, particularly in the aerodynamics and acoustics of speech. The second edition, now part of the Oxford Textbooks in Linguistics series, has been updated throughout, and is now consistent with the revised International Phonetic Alphabet (1996). urn:lcp:practicalintrodu00catf:epub:a52f9ee1-bd79-46cb-8a16-9e5e7a47995a Extramarc University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (PZ) Foldoutcount 0 Identifier practicalintrodu00catf Identifier-ark ark:/13960/t54f5w518 Invoice 1213 Isbn 9780198242178 Updated usage of phonetic symobls in line with the latest International Phonetic Alphabet Chart (1996) Second edition includes a revised further reading section and new references to the most important recent publications A great book with a very practical approach.
