Revue de presse

Review from previous edition 'an introduction to general phonetics that integrates the articulatory and the acoustic aspects of the subject in a way that few other introductory works do; that gives a comprehensive view of the whole subject' (Kritikon Litterarum)

Présentation de l'éditeur

An understanding of phonetics - of the mechanisms of speech, of how the sounds of language are produced, and of how they can be analysed and classified - is an essential acquirement for all those who have to deal with language and languages either theoretically or practically. This book is an introduction to general phonetics which explores the entire range of human sounds, systematically covering all types of modification of speech (breath, voice, whisper, creak, etc.), articulation (the ways in which the air stream is finally modulated to generate specific types of sound), and prosodic features (stress, syllable, tone, intonation, etc.). In addition, there is a chapter on sound systems - the ways in which particular languages utilize and systematize the universal sound-producing potential of man. The entire range of phonetic categories is introduced in 124 'experiments', to be carried out in the readrer's own vocal tract. In this way, the reader acquires a personal awareness of the principles of phonetic analysis and classification rather than a merely intellectual knowledge of them. This highly practical approach is informed throughout by recent research, particularly in the aerodynamics and acoustics of speech. NEW TO THE SECOND EDITION: New format and text design Updated usage of phonetic symobls in line with the most recent International Phonetic Alphabet Chart (1996) Revisions to 9 figures Text updated and clarified for ease of reading Revised further reading section with recent publications and more attention to aerodynamics, acoustics, and prosodies New references to the most important new publications

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Catford, my hero 21 novembre 2012
In my opinion, this is the best book on phonetics ever written. It requires no prior knowledge, but takes the reader on an exploration of his or her vocal tract, a using a series of exercises designed to heighten their awareness of how we make sounds.

I won't repeat the description given in the blurb above. Simply, if you are a language teacher or learner, and want to know how we use ourselves when we speak, this is the book for you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A brilliant introduction to phonetics 26 mai 2001
Par Thomas Widmann - Publié sur Amazon.com
When I first got my copy of Catford's book, I was disappointed: The book simply looked to small!
But when I opened it, I was astonished. It's full of practical exercises that will enable you to familiarise yourself with your speech organs and will teach you to pronounce all the major sounds of the World's languages.
Throughout, Catford refers to major dialects of English, so it should be equally useful whether you're English, Scottish or American.
However, if English is a foreign language to you (as it is to me), some of the exercises may be a little more difficult than they were meant to be, but that's the only flaw I could find in this fine book.
It's amazing that phonetics can be taught so well without a tape or a tutor!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Warning: Do not use this book when in a library 5 avril 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Next time you come across someone saying 'zzzz' and 'ssss' and 'zzzz' and 'ssss', better think twice before declaring that person nuts - he or she may actually be a student of phonetics having bought Catfords book!
Yes, when Catford says practical, he means practical. And phonetics, at least the articulatory side of it (which this book is all about), deals with producing sounds, not just reading about them.
If you've ever wondered what the strange signs in your average IPA chart actually stand for, then look no further. This book will teach you to produce all, and I mean ALL, the sounds of the phonetic alphabet, from the tips of your lips right down to your vocal folds.
But beware: Do not use this book in public or people might think you're nuts.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An incredible introduction! 20 février 2009
Par Chris B - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Phonetics, since I've become interested in linguistics, has always been something on the edge of my comprehension. Being a perfectionist when it comes to language learning, it drove me insane. Yes, my Russian palatals were positively poisonous. My laterals were ludicrous. My ejectives were egregious.

Okay, enough of that.

Every expectation I had of this book was fulfilled. Are you looking to fully comprehend the IPA alphabet? You will. Are you looking to be able to more correctly pronounce strange foreign sounds? You will! This book, which I read lazily over the course of two weeks, allows you to not only speak accurately, but it delves deep into the nature of the construction of speech. No stone is left unturned. It is also very accommodating of various English dialects (GA and RP, and more), and it also references other languages during the course of study.

As another reviewer said, you probably don't want to read this book in a library. My family curiously watched me as I would often begin to make strange sounds while reading the book. But, that's what really makes the lessons within stick to one's mind; the actual experience complements the learning.

The only improvement that could be made to this book might be the inclusion of an audio CD, to perfect some of the sounds that are more subjective or downright unfamiliar (such as the cardinal vowels, voiced implosives and the pharyngeal articulations). However, that would probably defeat the purpose. The book doesn't aim for exaction, it aims for understanding. With the principles laid down in this book, you can easily find an online IPA chart to fine tune your sounds.

In short, if you are searching for a phonetics book, stop your search now. You will not find a more accessible nor a more comprehensive introduction. You will find what you're looking for in this book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Catford Practical Introduction to phonetics 15 août 2012
Par Jerold A. Edmondson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Catford's last book is called an Introduction but it also contains some truths about phonetics that are quite profound. Especially useful are the discussions of phonation and stricture, where he outlines the articulatory mechanisms. Aside from the sounds of the oral cavity, which are found in all languages, Catford goes on to talk about the articulations of the pharyngeal cavity and gives instruction on how one can make some of these pharyngeal sounds, which are important for the learner of Arabic.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A practical one 4 juin 2013

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
If you or your kid is interested in accents, dialects, and sounds that humans can produce, this is the book for you. Every thing in this book is an exercise. These exercises help you gain awareness of various articulators, different modes of phonation, etc.

This book does not come up with audio for a reason; Catford does not want you to mimic sounds from a CD; instead, learn aerodynamic, articulatory ways to produce sounds.

If you don't want to spend $35 for the second edition, just buy the first edition. There is no difference between the first and second editions, except for few IPA symbol changes that changed between 1989 and 2005 IPA charts.
