A Phonetics Workbook for Students: Building a Foundation for Transcription (The Allyn & Bacon Communication Sciences and Disorders) Reviews
This workbook was simply phenomenal to help me review what I learned a couple of years ago in my phonology class. It has great exercises that include the answers in the back. My only warning is that I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone who has no experience with the IPA chart. The book starts with differentiating sounds in their normal spelling as opposed to introducing the sound as it would appear when transcribed. Personally, I think any person starting off would find it confusing, there were times that I would have to transcribe a word before I could figure out an answer! Definitely a great refresher, but not so much as an intro book.
This was used for my graduate phonetics class. I loved this workbook! The exercises were excellent, especially for someone learning phonetics for the first time. The vowels are organized by place and the consonants are organized by manner, which makes it easier to learn. After each section, there are tons of practice problems. The answer key does contain some errors, but nothing major. I highly recommend for anyone interested in phonetics and definitely great for professors teaching a class.
As expected. Lots of practice (granted it is a workbook).
The exercises in the book would be really helpful if the answer key wasn't wrong as often as it is. It makes it confusing for students trying to learn the material.
Great book for older learners in my opinion. Not really appropriate for the young learners (i.e. elementary school).
Very helpful exercises
Great workbook and is very convenient for class.
Great condition! Exactly what I needed!
