As a companion to Phonetic Science for Clinical Practice, the workbook helps students practice identifying and writing phonetic consonant symbols and the articulatory phonetics
of vowels, and gain a deeper understanding of the difference between broad and narrow phonetic transcription, suprasegmental features of speech, and the interpretation of acoustic spectrograms.
The appendices include a list of the chronological divisions of Chinese history, an outline of articulatory phonetics
and the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), a pronunciation guide to Hanyu pinyin [phrase omitted] (the official Romanization for Chinese), a pinyin-to-IPA correspondence table, and a list of abbreviations used for grammatical terms.
The scholars designed 14 consonant letters according to articulatory phonetics
and 10 vowels according to the principles of yin and yang.
seeks to understand the elements that play the specific, speech-related functional roles.
In articulatory phonetics
vowels are mainly described in terms of three features: (1) height of the tongue (2) backness of the tongue and (3) lip rounding.
Organization is in sections on basic terms and concepts, articulatory phonetics
, phonetic transcription and diacritics, theory and practice, normal phonological development, collection of data for evaluation, dialects and English as a second language, diagnosis and treatment or therapy for articulation and phonological errors, and considerations for selected populations.
It also includes an introductory chapter on the role of phonetics and phonology, and articulatory phonetics
. Arvo Eek began to prepare the second volume which was to be devoted to Estonian consonants.
Chapter 1 introduces the reader to articulatory phonetics
(Section 1.1), acoustic phonetics (Section 1.2), phonetic alphabets (Section 1.3) and concludes with several exercises (Section 1.4).
Moreover, in the course of describing and evaluating his sources, Jones also illuminates eighteenth-century notions of word division, articulatory phonetics
, and, particularly, phonetic transcription.

The book does not assume a linguistically sophisticated student but there are places in which the learner must wrestle with non-functional subject matter; e.g., when the articulatory phonetics
of MSA is presented, including a midsagittal view of the speech tract (pp.
