  • Gimson's Pronunciation of English (Hodder Arnold Publication) By Alan Cruttenden ()
    This seventh edition has been revised throughout, with particular emphasis on those areas which have seen rapid change in recent years. A new Introduction gives an overview of phonetics, examines the notion of a standard English accent and outlines key concepts in the learning of English as a first language and as an additional language. All the central chapters have been updated, notably by the inclusion of revised articulatory diagrams based on recent MRI scans.
     
    This new edition considers the developing status of English as an international language and discusses the current debate about the idea of a global pronunciation standard as an alternative to Received Pronunciation and General American.
     
    The layout of the book is now more user-friendly with the use of text boxes to summarise key information and an accompanying website, www.hodderplus.com/linguistics, contains exercises for learners; fMRI scans of English phrases, including all the vowels and consonants; and recordings by the author of part of the book.
     
    Since its first publication, Gimson's Pronunciation of English has been the essential reference book for anyone studying or teaching the phonetics of English. It includes comprehensive coverage of individual vowels and consonants together with their variation and history; their articulation and acoustics, their rhythm and intonation, and how they develop in young children and foreign learners. All this ensures that Gimson's Pronunciation of English will remain the most authoritative introduction to English phonetics for many years to come.
     
    It is beyond doubt that this book remains the most authoritative introduction to English phonetics...with this new edition, Cruttenden has contributed his part to safeguarding the place the book merits for the coming years. -- Linguistics If one could use the phrase 'classic text' at this point in the history of phonetics literature, A.C. Gimson's An Introduction to English Pronunciation would aptly fit the description. Cruttenden's reputation as a phonetician plainly shows throughout the book. Once I started reading it, I could not help but wonder if perhaps Erasmus was mistaken when he said "as no one is so good that he cannot be made better, so no book is so complete that it cannot be improved"(letter to John Botzheim, 1523). -- Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses This updated edition of Gimson's classic will maintain its status as the foremost description of British varieties of English pronunciation. -- International Phonetic Association 20030529 This latest edition of Gimson's Pronunciation of English does an excellent job in bringing this classic up to date. Cruttenden's new edition will ensure that Gimson's Pronunciation of English will maintain its position as the most comprehensive and authoritative introduction to English phonetics for years to come. It thus remains an indispensable reference book for anyone involved in studying or teaching the pronunciation of English. -- English Language Teaching Journal 20021001 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

  • Language and Linguistics By John Lyons ()
    This 1981 book is a general introduction to linguistics and the study of language, intended particularly for beginning students and readers with no previous knowledge or training in the subject. There is first a general account of the nature of language and of the aims, methods and basic principles of linguistic theory. John Lyons then introduces in turn each of the main sub-fields of linguistics: the sounds of language, grammar, semantics, language change, psycholinguistics: the sounds of language, grammar, semantics, language change, psycholinguistics, language and culture. Throughout the book he emphasizes particularly those aspects of the discipline that seem fundamental and most likely to remain important. He stresses throughout the cultural at least as much as the biological context of human language, and shows how the linguist's concerns connect productively with those of the traditional humanities and the social sciences. Each chapter has a wide-ranging set of discussion questions and revision exercises, and extensive suggestions for further reading. The exposition is marked throughout by the author's characteristic clarity, balance and authority.

The book is designed to be used as an elementary textbook, and is therefore written at a lower level and is more comprehensive in scope than the author's classic Introduction to Theoretical Linguistics (Cambridge University Press, 1968). Each chapter has a wide-ranging set of discussion questions and revision exercises, and extensive suggestions for further reading. The exposition is marked throughout by the author's characteristic clarity, balance and authority.
