Présentation de l'éditeur

The clear and easy way to get a handle on the science of speech

The science of how people produce and perceive speech, phonetics has an array of real-world applications, from helping engineers create an authentic sounding Irish or Canadian accent for a GPS voice, to assisting forensics investigators identifying the person whose voice was caught on tape, to helping a film actor make the transition to the stage. Phonetics is a required course among students of speech pathology and linguistics, and it's a popular elective among students of telecommunications and forensics. The first popular guide to this fascinating discipline, Phonetics For Dummies is an excellent overview of the field for students enrolled in introductory phonetics courses and an ideal introduction for anyone with an interest in the field.

Bonus instructional videos, video quizzes, and other content available online for download on the dummies.com product page for this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Smart Book 28 septembre 2013
Par Libber - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Phonetics for Dummies is the text I have been waiting for. I teach Phonetics at the undergraduate level and know the available texts on the market pretty well. They are all fine. They are all over $100. They all go unbought by my students. Author William Katz is a phonetician, researcher, and teacher. This is the right combination. His book is inviting, engaging, and useful to students. AND it is affordable.

The only concern I have is "overcoming" the "...for Dummies" trademark with students who would look down on an entry in the series as not being serious scholarship. More's the pity, for this book is smart. It lays out the foundations of articulatory phonetics, and it covers nicely that sweet spot of articulation's connection to acoustic properties and listener perceptions. It shows why Phonetics is useful/important/fun, and it offers hands-on practice for students to apply what they just read.

Absolutely, this is the required text for all my future Phonetics courses. I will also suggest it to those language-geek friends of mine. Best of it, it isn't too English-centric (as some books can be), yet it never loses the typical American English reader.

Thank to the author for writing this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Clear and Complete Text, but One Minor Kindle Frustration -- Still Worth the Purchase. 14 novembre 2014
Par The Gypsy Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I think this purchase gave quite good value for the money and would recommend the book to anyone interested in phonetics, whether as someone working in relevant fields (actors, speech language pathologists, etc.) or just as someone who is curious about the basics of speech production, language change, language learning, and the way various people deal with expressing themselves in the wide variety of languages in the world.
The author writes well and has organized his material well. He also writes with good but appropriate humor which, happily, facilitates his explanations of occasionally complicated matters. It's clear that he is writing for a diverse audience and some of the later chapters were clearly primed for those specialists working with people with various types of injury-based speech impediments, but even these chapters were quite interesting, and remarkably clear (for this reader, who has no background or direct knowledge of the field).
If I am seemingly so high on the book (and I am) then why not five stars versus four. The answer is simply that I bought the kindle addition and, while the text and larger diagrams were clear and had no discernible problems, a number of the charts laying out portions of, for example, the International Phonetic Alphabet, were extremely difficult to make out, given the shrinking of the page necessary to fit on a Kindle screen. This factor was a bit frustrating (although readily understandable), but still didn't prevent the purchase being extremely worthwhile.
