occasional observations on English pronunciation features, phonetics, teaching and learning
Tuesday, 5 February 2013
It's my pleasure to announce the publication of the 3rd edition of Practical Phonetics and Phonology (abbreviated to PPP3) by Beverley Collins and Inger M. Mees. After only less than 3 years did the authors and the publisher feel the need to embark on the gestation and production of a new edition. And the new 'baby' has grown - from 305 to 330 pages. The well-established 'skeleton' consisting of four main sections has been retained: Introduction - Development - Exploration - Extension.
It's not a book on theoretical aspects of phonetics intended for the initiated phonetician but rather addresses the needs of students - hence the subtitle "a resource book for students".
If you liked the 2nd ed., you will in all probability also like the 3rd. May the baby thrive!
