Basics of Phonetics and English Phonology is a textbook for students of English, designed for students following BA foundation courses as no prior knowledge of linguistics is required. It provides students with a sound understanding of the principles of phonetics in general, but also with a special focus on English phonology. In addition, the exercises offer systematic practical training in IPA transcription. The book is designed for German non-native speakers of English, as specific difficulties in practical pronunciation are highlighted, but it can equally be used by any student interested in the mechanisms of spoken English. The transcription exercises at the end of each chapter are both in British and US American standard pronunciation.
