This book is designed to provide students with basic knowledge of English phonetics and phonology. English phonetics includes description of phonetic features for segmental phonemes (i.e., consonants and vowels) and supra-segmental phonemes (i.e., stress and intonation and juncture). Students taking phonetics also learn the knowledge and practical skill of reading and writing phonetic transcription, both broad and narrow transcription. English phonology, beginning with a brief review of English phonetics, introduces to students phonological principles governing sound patterns in English. English phonology primarily explains how surface (phonetic) representation is derived from underlying (phonemic) representation by means of phonological rules and additionally discusses how phonemics interacts with syntax, primarily with the surface structure which serves as input for phonology.
