MEDIA REVIEWS
'This excellent introduction guides us lightly but firmly through the intricacies of English phonology. McCully is the master of metaphor; his refreshingly imaginative style makes learning about the sounds of English and their relation to contemporary phonological theory an exciting journey of discovery.' Donka Minkova, Professor of Linguistics, University of California, Los Angeles
"Overall, the book provides a good coverage of some of the main topics in English phonetics and phonology and should be lauded for its student friendly organization and content." -Marie Ploquin, University of Quebec in Montreal
