triple P

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!

PS: I wonder what's hidden behind the glass wall.
