Why Not Simplify Our Phonetic Transcription?
Mepham, Roy
Zielsprache Englisch, n4 p8-11 1978
Finds three faults, from the teacher's viewpoint, in the phonetic transcription in English textbooks used in German People's Universities: many unfamiliar symbols, many irrelevant distinctions, and failure to mention important variations. Suggests improvements in vowel treatment based on Hornby, "Oxford Progressive English" (London, Oxford University Press, 1954). (IFS/WGA)
