Australian English pronunciation and transcription

Felicity Cox, Janet Fletcher

Research output: Book/ReportTextbook


Australian English Pronunciation and Transcription is the first textbook to clearly describe Australian English speech patterns. Now in its second edition, this ground-breaking work addresses speech production characteristics and provides detailed instruction in both phonetic and phonemic transcription of the dialect. Each chapter features practical exercises to allow readers to develop skills and test their knowledge as they progress through the text. These exercises are complemented by an extensive companion website, which contains valuable explanatory materials, audio examples and accompanying activities for students. A new assessment bank includes exercises of varying difficulty, allowing lecturers to build unique assessment tasks tailored to their students' needs. Drawing on their extensive experience as teachers and researchers in phonetics and phonology, Felicity Cox and new author Janet Fletcher have crafted a comprehensive resource that remains essential reading for students, teachers and practitioners of linguistics, speech pathology and language education.
