This is a fully integrated course book aimed at universi-ty students of English in the German-speaking region. It presents a staged and clearly developed introducti on to the theory of pronunciati on combined with a wealth of transcripti on exercises and an accompanying CD. The book requires no prior knowledge of linguisti cs. From the outset, it explains key concepts in easy-to-understand language, highlights key terms in the text for easy re-view, and gives translati ons of many of the terms into German. Additi onally, a glossary provides students with a handy quick reference. The transcripti on exercises gui-de students from exploratory tasks to basic transcripti on to the more demanding transcripti on of natural dialogue, and all exercises are supplied with annotated soluti ons. The book is carefully divided into lessons and exercises which can be managed in 12 two-hour classes, leaving enough ti me for review and examinati on in a university term of 14 weeks or more.
"a well structured and easy-to-follow introducti on to the basics of the theory of pronunciati on, accompanied by a carefully designed set of practi cal exercises and a step-by-step transcripti on course
