"The recommended reading for each chapter presents the interested student with material for further study, and the exercises provided are interesting, relevant and often thought provoking."--LINGUIST List 13.2169, Sat Aug 24, 2002

This is a short, lively, and accessible introduction to the sounds of modern English. Its emphasis on variation, with examples from British, American, New Zealand, and Singaporean English, make it suitable for both native and non-native speakers. McMahon focuses on the vowels and consonants, but also discusses syllables, stress, and the phonology of words and phrases. She introduces new tools and terminology gradually, and discusses the motivation for key concepts.
