Manual of Articulatory Phonetics.
Smalley, William A.
This textbook has been designed for courses in practical phonetics for beginning students. The point of view is that general phonetics is a primary skill of great importance to language students who want to acquire a fluent and accurate spoken mastery of a language in adulthood, as well as to linguists who need it as a basic tool of their profession. The instruction and drills presented in the manual are designed to sharpen the student's hearing of both familiar and exotic sounds, and to enable the student to develop a flexibility in his speech apparatus and learn to manipulate the various speech organs to produce unfamiliar cominations of movement. Other goals are the development of mimicry and sound-symbol association. The manual is designed to provide one lesson for each 50- to 55- minute class drill session, with two such drill sessions per day. The lessons are alternated, first between consonants and pitch, and then between consonants and vowels. Tape recordings have been made of the exercises contained in the manual. They are intended to be used at any point where the student feels his mastery of the sound type or combination of sounds is not adequate. A workbook (FL 002 881) and a teacher's guide (FL 002 880) accompany the manual. (Author/VM)
