This textbook is written in such a comprehensive way that it's easy to understand! Because it's a textbook, you won't really have a lot of choice but to buy this book, but just so you know, don't be daunted by it. It's not that long, and it's very comprehensive.

Aside from taking a LOT of time to get here, it was sent well in perfect condition & was much cheaper than the one the school was selling.

Kindle edition almost unreadable in places Feb. 6 2012
By Chris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As mentioned by several reviews for this item, the Kindle version is fairly bad. There are a combination of typos and several other problems. For example, this book uses many International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) letters. However, these letters are sometimes shown with normal font and sometimes with an image of the character appear instead. Furthermore, in more than a few places, when one single IPA letter should appear, a random word (with the correct letter in it) appears - and this word is often an image also. So, in addition to these problems, because there are so many images of individuals letters/words, resizing of text does not work for these images, and makes them nearly unreadable. Finally, I would like to note that the Kindle Reader software on Windows does, in fact, do a great job of IPA support, and can render them correctly (without the need to embed images). So, whoever created this electronic version did a horrible job.

I would love a refund and to be able to purchase the hard copy instead....

best phonology textbook out there Dec 5 2008
By Joe the Linguist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Well-written, direct, an excellent guide through the foundations of the field for undergraduates, from a highly lauded scholar. Though written for beginners, it doesn't verge into territory of being too simplistic. A must-have!

Don't buy the kindle edition Feb. 5 2012
By deragon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent reference for any linguistics student. It's well written, has plenty of examples and exercises, and is fairly easy to read. BUT the kindle edition is AWFUL. Splurge on the physical textbook. The kindle edition is riddled with errors. Often in the excersizes the task will be to compare two words which appear exactly the same, or the letters are so small and fuzzy that I can't even see what they are. Often a single symbol will be replaced with an entire IPA word, completely changing the word. Also , there are no page numbers, and this is a heavy work-book style text, so it's impossible to simply flip to the page your professor asks you to. I think that amazon has really screwed this one up, and until they decide to put page numbers and fix the IPA errors, please please buy the physical textbook! I ended up buying it anyway, so I wasted my 20 bucks here!

Introductory Phonology (Blackwell Textbooks in Linguistics) Feb. 10 2010
By Sue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a linguistics student, this is a wonderful reference guide. Published in 2009, it's modern, up to date, and uses the current IPA standard. This book was a recommended supplement for a phonology class, but it's helping me in all my courses. It's an excellent book. 5/5 stars.

Worst electronic edition ever. Sept. 19 2013
By John Hunter McKnight - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The textbook itself is good, but the electronic edition is riddled with serious errors (because of lack of IPA font support) that make the Kindle edition unusable. Even when the representation of sounds in the book is correct, they are often embedded as tiny images that cannot be resized on your Kindle device. I cannot express how much I regret buying the electronic edition instead of a physical copy.
