First Sentence
There are many different dialects of English spoken in North America, so it is somewhat improper to refer to any one of them simply as 'American English'. Read the first page

3.0 out of 5 stars Leaves something to be desired April 26 2004
By Alekos
Format:Paperback
On page 4 of this book I found the following sentence, which really imploded my glottal stops: "This introduction can only deal with a few important points, and readers who need a more through treatment of phonetic description should consult phonetics textbooks" Are these people for real? thought I. It is some comfort to know that there are several excellent phonetics texts currently available. The explanatory sections in this handbook are written in a quaint, almost stuffy sort of prose. Modern Greek and Spanish are not among the languages used to illustrate the pronciples of IPA transcription. In sum, this book is not terribly helplful or useful but educated people should probably own a copy for reasons of historical importance.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE Aug. 16 2003
Format:Paperback
Personally I think that this is a MUST HAVE BOOK for any linguist, or self-proclaimed linguists and linguist-wannabes.

I have used this book many times as an excellent reference on many occasions while attaining my Bachelor's degree in Linguistics. Now, a year later, I still see myself referring back to it for helpful information.
One need not be a linguist to enjoy it, but I highly recommend it as it would significantly aid in ones better understanding if one were to know what a voiceless velar fricative is, per example.

5.0 out of 5 stars What you'd expect April 23 2003
By kabuka
Format:Paperback
This book is exactly what one would expect it to be: a thorough explanation of the International Phonetic Alphabet. It has a beginning section on the description of consonant and vowel sounds and thier places of articulation. The best part about the book is it analyzes the phonetic alphabet of most of the world's languages including many lesser used ones such as Bulgarian, Catalan, and Igbo, for example. The back has a description of each of the symbols so one can figure out what sound an unfamiliar symbol represents. This is a good reference book for all linguistics.
