About The Book
The Functional Phonetics Workbook, now in its third edition, emphasizes the basics of learning the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) in a simplified, useful manner so students can be successful and confident at IPA transcription. It meets the need for undergraduate students majoring in communication sciences and disorders who require one semester of training in phonetics.
The workbook includes easy-to-use phoneme study cards, which help students learn the symbol/sound association using the IPA, clear diagrams illustrating how sounds are produced, and audio files of transcription exercises related to the study cards. New with this edition, the audio files are available on CDs and a companion website. The workbook comes with access to both so users can choose the format that best suits their needs. Also included are learning objectives to every chapter, study questions to reinforce learning, and a glossary of terms.
