Description - A Dictionary of Phonetics and Phonology by R. L. Trask

This is a dictionary of terms in phonetics and phonology written for students and teachers. It will also be of interest to all those concerned with or working in speech therapy. The terminology of articulatory phonetics is covered in great detail, and there is also treatment of the most important acoustic and auditory phonetics. Comprehensive coverage is afforded to phonology, including classical phonology, early and later versions of generative phonology and contemporary approaches. Given the recent reemergence of prosodic ideas in phonology, prosodic terminology, both traditional and contemporary, is also well covered. Historical phonology, intonation and tonology and the phonology of English are all considered. The format is clear and easy to use, offering a variety of features to facilitate quick and comprehensive information retrieval. Features include: * 2,000 terms, many of them with multiple senses * summary of the major feature systems * pronunciations, notational devices and symbols * earliest sources of terms * suggestions for further reading The dictionary devotes space to the various theoretical approaches in proportion to their importance, but it concentra most heavily on non-theory-bound descriptive terminology. This makes it unlikely to date quickly, and it will remain a definitive reference source for years to come.
