Phonetics is the study of pronunciation. Actual pronunciation is often quite different from what the speaker imagines it to be, and with the techniques of phonetics described in this book it becomes possible to analyze pronunciation objectively. Such ability is vital prerequisite for the study of speech, linguistics and speech therapy, and for a soundly-based interest in dialects and accents. In addition to its coverage of techniques and theory. Practical Phonetics also provides practical exercises and questions for discussion.
