This is an encyclopedia of phonetic alphabet symbols, providing a complete survey of the many characters used by linguists and speech scientists to record the sounds of the world's languages. This edition incorporates the major revisions to the International Phonetic Alphabet made in 1989 and 1993. Also covered are the American tradition of transcription stemming from the anthropological school of Franz Boas; the Bloch/Smith/Trager style of transcription; the symbols used by dialectologists of the English language; usages of specialists such as Slavicists, Indologists, Sinologists, and Africanists; and the transcription proposals found in all major textbooks of phonetics. With 61 new entries, an expanded glossary of phonetic terms, added symbol charts and a full index, this book should be a useful guide for students and professionals in linguistics, phonetics, anthropology, philology, modern language study and speech science.
