Oct 01, Lucas rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Ladefoged’s “A Course in Phonetics” is one of the most well-known and best phonetics books around.

It is an excellent volume covering just about every element one must know to have a solid base in phonetics.

The breakdown favors native English speakers, and American ones in the US edition, at least first providing a clear description of the phonetics of English including prosodic features, consonants, and vowels before moving on to all other sound systems. It is fantastically complete given th Ladefoged’s “A Course in Phonetics” is one of ladefohed most well-known and best phonetics books around.

It is fantastically complete given the size.

One of the strengths of courde volume lies in the insightful walkthroughs on producing some of the more difficult sounds, using such hints as how to determine which method of articulation one uses to produce the American English “R. Other techniques, such as sucking in air to feel exposed areas for laterals, all provide extremely helpful ways of both identifying and articulating nearly z sounds.


Furthermore, each chapter end includes a bevvy of performance exercises courae can use to practice and alternate between sounds, getting down the rhythm of expression. One of the only real weaknesses to the volume is in the CD portion. While immensely helpful, the CD was not updated between the 5th and 6th edition even though it has “6th” printed on it. The exercises on the CD therefore do not match those in the book, yet it is really only a different order so still usable.

On that point, I really noticed no differences between the 5th and cokrse edition other than the exercises, which pisses iin off to the classic tune of the publisher’s release of a new edition for no legitimate reason. Those bureaucratic complaints aside, this book is the best there is currently for phonetics from of the most important people to have worked in the field.

The illustrations and charts are extremely helpful for driving home points, the aforementioned descriptions are useful, and the glossary in the end is excellent. If you want to study some phonetics, get this. Jul 11, Ne. Generally the structure of this book is as same as those desighned 2 teach a s course proprely.

This book, which is republished for five times gives the readers the basic the pattern of the world’s languages.

Probably in my personal TOP 5 introductions of university readings. Written in an approachable way it excellent for complete beginners who are dealing with Phonetics for the first time. On the edition, I can only say that its edltion is passable to an everyday bag approximately 10” laptop and light to carry around with you. It is definitely worth every penny and I am grateful the phonetis has several copies of them to enjoy for a month. Jan 11, Nmba marked it as to-read. May 30, Ahmed rated efition it was amazing.

The book is theoretically balanced in its structure; however, its comprehensiveness may make it a bit difficult for those who do not possess prior familiarity with some of the basic concepts in the field of phonetics. Just as its summary describes it, the book takes an easy-to-understand approach that begins with the basics. This is part of my crash course before graduate school.


A Course in Phonetics by Peter Ladefoged

Will need to revisit a couple of chapters, maybe that on manners of articulation, specifically sounds that are not in English, and that on spectograms. It was an interesting read.
