THIS VOLUME, IN ITS CONTRASTIVE ANALYSIS OF THE SOUND SYSTEMS OF ENGLISH AND GERMAN, NOT ONLY IDENTIFIES PRONUNCIATION PROBLEM AREAS, BUT ALSO RECOMMENDS SPECIFIC CORRECTIVE MEASURES. MOST OF THE BOOK DETAILS EXTENSIVELY PHONETIC AND PHONEMIC ANALYSES OF THE CONSONANTS AND VOWELS OF BOTH LANGUAGES. FEATURED IN THE CONTRASTIVE CONSONANTAL ANALYSIS ARE DISCUSSIONS OF RELEVANT TEACHING, PHONEMIC, PHONETIC, ALLOPHONIC, AND DISTRIBUTIONAL PROBLEMS. THE ACCOUNT OF THE VOWEL CONTRASTS EXAMINES MOST OF THE CONFLICTING POINTS IN THE ENGLISH AND GERMAN SYSTEMS AND SUGGESTS CORRECTIVE DRILLS FOR EACH.
