For courses in Phonetics found in Communication Sciences and Disorders departments.

Not the typical phonetics workbook, this resource offers more exercises and a unique "meta" approach that emphasizes the sounds of the English language. 

Understanding how sounds form—and how sounds combine to create words— is imperative to learning how to transcribe speech phonetically. This workbook prepares students to transcribe speech phonetically by helping them become aware of the sounds of English phonology. Following a systematic, learning-friendly organization, chapter’s progress from awareness of sounds, to articulatory phonetics and IPA symbols, to transcription. Unlike other workbooks, its exercises are varied and challenging and develop foundational and critical thinking skills. By teaching students how to develop both an ear and eye for phonetics, the workbook provides a superior foundation from which transcription skills can develop.
