This edition of The Pronunciation of English incorporates the final
results of Daniel Jones? lifelong study of English pronunciation
usage. It is the standard work on English phonetics and the name of
its author will, in the words of Professor A. C. Gimson, ?remain in
linguistic history as the great authority on the pronunciation of
British English in the twentieth century?. The Pronunciation of
English was written originally as a detailed description of the
phonetics of English, presented from the point of vew of the native
English-speaking student. However, it soon established itself as a
standard textbook in universities where English is a foreign
language, because it provides in a lucid and authoritative manner
the basic information needed by foreign students of the language.
Most of the book is devoted to a descriptive account of English
pronunciation. This is followed by illustrative texts in phonetic
transcription of Received Pronunciation and several regional
varieties, Scottish and American pronunciation and reconstructions
of Shakespearian and Chaucerian speech.ContentsForeword; Preface;
