AllMoreWorking with the Sounds of English and Dutch is aimed at the Dutch-Speaking student who is taking Phonetics as a part of an advanced course in English at University or teacher training institute. No previous knowledge of phonetics is assumed. All technical points are explained in straightforward English as they are introduced, and theoretical and practical aspects of the subject are clarified for the student by means of practical exercises in articulation and transcription.

The emphasis is on a contrastive approach throughout. The sound systems of standard English (Received Pronunciation) and standard Dutch (Algemeen Beschaafd Nederlands) are described in detail, with numerous helpful diagrams. Features of connected speech, for example, articulatory setting, stress, rhythm, assimilation and elision, are fully examined and a complete chapter is devoted to intonation in English and Dutch.

A special attraction of the book are the sections on error analysis, which give a comprehensive treatment of pronunciation problem areas. Also included is a survey of the most important accents of the British Isles(Scots, Welsh, Irish, London, West Country etc.)
